Came back from booze cruise last night. Whilst in a bar in Cherbourg forcing a few, I enquired why the french navy wear those red balls on their caps........well not quite that inquisitively. My french failed me on fckuing ice cream man and surrender monkey. Any way i didn't get a plausable answer. Anyone know?
p.s. I got the blood out of the jacket on the second soak.

Yep. Tried that, hence the blood.
They kept calling me a 'roast beef'. I explained that exept for an inquisitive babble in Singers in my teens i'm as straigt as a shackle...Bastards.
