OK, now we all know that a camel is a horse designed by a committee. What I want to know is which bl**dy committee designed this lawnmower?

Danny - I added "whatever it is" / quidquid id est to my quote. Seems appropriate.

This time you have gone too far. I know you regard my Mother as a bit fearsome, but three flamethrowers?

She does have some feelings, you know.

OK here is the plan. We need to get rid of their lordships “good idea” pronto, so when we do the air drop test tomorrow make sure the parachute doesn’t open, got it ?

The Committee is grateful to the team that submitted this entry for the New Military Vehicle competition; in particular we feel that the jet-powered tank could have a future if certain problems can be resolved, viz:
- effect of jet on following troops
- regrettable tendency to tip over to the left or right whenever the directional jets are activated.
