    Gotta Love The Irish

    This is the transcription of the ACTUAL radio conversation between
    the British and the Irish off the coast of Kerry, Ireland October
    1998. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations
    10-10-98.

    IRISH: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a
    collision.

    BRITISH: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North to
    avoid a collision.

    IRISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the

    South to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: This is the Captain of a British Navy Ship. I say again,
    divert YOUR course.

    IRISH: Negative. I say again, you will have to divert YOUR course.

    BRITISH: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER HMS BRITIANNIA ! THE SECOND
    LARGEST SHIP IN THE BRITISH ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY
    THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS.
    DEMAND YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. I SAY AGAIN,
    THAT IS 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN
    TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

    IRISH: We are a lighthouse................Your Call.

    :lol: Those are my peeps! (maiden name was Mahon)

    North-going Sneetch and South-going Sneetch! (Well, slight variance in that one wasn't really going anywhere!)

    Love it! I, being of English descent, bear no resemblance in stubborn self-righteousness! :roll:

    Next Saturday our band is doing a dance for the Robert Burns Society.

    Last year at the dance I opened my wallet to pay for a drink (hey it's a Scottish party ya gotta pay) and when the bar tender heard the velcro on the wallet he said

    "That's a grrreat Scot'sman wallet ye got there...it even scrrreams when ye open it!"
