This is the transcript of 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 avert 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 USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE HEAVY CRUISERS, THREE DESTROYERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. I SAY AGAIN THAT'S ONE FIVE NORTHER, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.
Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

first of all a note to any american kids who read this- please take no offense, for this was a joke i got out of the vancouver sun newspaper. and if you have any canadian based jokes you feel needing to be told, i say GO FOR IT!

A which chatting to to her which freinds:

My doctor told me i have an extremely high cholesterol level and that i need to lay off the fatty foods for a while. So for now, american kids are strictly off-limits.
