One good joke deserves another.This is said to be a transcript of a genuine conversation that took place between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland a few years ago:'Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision. Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north. Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision. Americans: This is the captain of a US navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course. Canadians: No. I say again, divert YOUR course. Americans: This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second biggest ship in the United States Atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous support vessels. I demand that you change YOUR course 15 degrees north. That's one five degrees north, or counter measures will be taken to ensure the safety of this ship. Canadians: We are a lighthouse. Your call.'Not sure if it's true but it sounds right.
You got me beat to hell there. I'll have to find some friends who'll appreciate the ship joke. I'd turn it into a one-act play but I'm concerned about rights issues.
