Victor Tanker operating somewhere in the Far East has a problem with his system and calls the local ATC with the message:

"Request permission to jettison my hose".

"... Tower - Say again over?"

After much toing and froing, a more competent English speaker appears on the tower frequency, but still sounds confused...

".... I understand that you wish to get rid of your socks?"
