Default Hey guys...I have a joke for you (Canadians will love it :P)

Hope everyone is well...thought I'd stop by and share this with you (a friend just emailed it to me).

This is the actual radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian
authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995
.

Radio conversation released by the chief of naval operations 10-10-95.


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
to avoid a collision.

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, you divert YOUR course.

AMERICANS: This is the Aircraft Carrier US LINCOLN, the second largest
ship in the United States Atlantic Fleet.
We are accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers and numerous
support vessels. I DEMAND that you change your course 15 degrees north.
I say again, that'* one-five degrees north, or counter-measures will be
launched to ensure the safety of this ship.

CANADIANS: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

I figured it was something like that, but I liked it anyway (and thought that certain Canadians around here would get a kick out of it ).
