Top Gun was on TV the other night and I was quite taken when Kelly was introduced to the school and her callsign was announced as "Charlie".

I am amazed I haven't made the connection before, but I think they were having a private joke in the film.

As I recall. the transmission "XYZ, Your Callsign Charlie" from the Air Boss means the deck is clear and ready for your approach.

I met a girl who "knocked around" with aviators a years ago and they said her nickname was "Charlie", I recall asking her if she was aware of the significance of the term and she replied in the affirmative...:}

The ironic thing is that most of the people lusting after her wouldn't have stood a chance

Watch Topgun with the sub titles ON.
You might see a very different movie:)

And for reasons that many won't want to believe :}

Ironic isn't it ? Top Gun has all sorts of gay icon references and the token totty turns out to be "off solids".

So the question was she any good and did you get lucky?

It was a gay movie. No doubt about that.

Wasn't the Tom Cruise character from Massapequa?

Or was it Massachusetts?

Low Flier:

Had to have been Massachusetts as no one in their right mind would ever own up to originating in Massapequa, LI, NY. (Except for the Baldwins that is.)

Enough of the sads (or "gays" as they insist on being called).

For a bit of balance for the benefit of us heteros on the forum, here's brødrene Ylvisåker doing a proper gender pisstake of American culture.

Looking back, with the wisdom of hindsight I can honestly say:

I could have and I should have, but I didn't, 'cause she wasn't...

but I definitely would, if it happened today. (but it won't)

Also, to apologise to all, I was about to Google her surname, when I was sure I remembered it and didn't bother...


and you can't edit the title of the post either!
