Almost Topical Tuesday

So, the British Navy personnel have been returned by Iran.
They would've liked to keep them, but you know how it is - you get something home and play with it a bit and it turns out not to be quite as much fun as you thought it was going to be. Apparently, they thought all British people were some kind of hybrid of Mr. Bean and Benny Hill. But even after many hours of interrogation, the hostages couldn't do any funny voices and they weren't even remotely accident-prone.

The Iranian Navy is now under strict orders to find an American vessel, preferably crewed by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.

If any officials of the US military are reading, please take this threat seriously. It may seem churlish to suggest that a major diplomatic crisis (US Govt. translation: 'war') could be triggered by a bunch of guys in desperate need of a good laugh, but if you have you seen Arab TV, you'll take my point.

More ATT next week.
Tomorrow, there'll be something else.

No news is too old.
