AND FINALLY: Your call chief

Since this is a cruise issue the following recently took place in the St Lawrence Seaway.

US Navy: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

Canadian: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Yank: This is the Captain of a US warship. I say again, divert your course.

Canadians: No. I say again, you divert your course.

American Admiral: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES’ ATLANTIC FLEET.  WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS.  I DEMAND YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, THAT’S ONE-FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR SHIP.

Canadian: This is a lighthouse. Your call chief.
