No you fool....the requirements document for the carriers stated that there could be a "Wait" for the combat aircraft - not that there should be a "Weight" for them!

Following the announcement of the latest review of defence spending, the Navy have categorically denied that they have any fat left in the system.

As you can see Commander, if you buy this class of vessel for the Royal Tongan Navy, there is plenty of room on the Bridge for your mobility scooter.

They will be sooo happy when I will use it for State affairs and such..."

I can assure you Gentlemen that we are quite safe in Port. There's no need to wear your Life Preservers under your jackets...

Much to their surprise, Tweedledum and Tweedledee found that they quite liked being in the forces.

Commander, why don't you try this one for size? err, I meant comfort.

Yes, very comfortable, Admiral, but I can't reach the steering wheel from here.

Admiral, does this boat carry heavyweight torpedoes?

Admiral, I think we're gonna need a bigger boat.

These X-Ray specs are excellent Admiral, they will be of great use when doing cruise ship boarding inspections.

Good, good.
Just a couple of modifications would be required if we are to buy this from you...

1. The bulkhead doors will need to be widened.
2. We'd like a spit suitable for pigs to be installed on the afterdeck.
3. A combined mess to accommodate, say, 100 people at deck level.

Oh, and we'll have to get rid of this chair... I'll have my tiffies fashion a suitable throne.
