French Minister of the Armed Forces decided that the French Navy needed a new motto - they wanted to make sure they didn't make the same mistake as the old English one of "feel a new man everyday"

So they came up with "to the water, it is time"........or in french....

a l'eau, c'est l'heure. (say it again quickly in your best allo allo accent!!)

Interesting to think the only invader they have thrown out on their own is the English.

I think they may have had a little assistance from the P/Jocks their allies for hundreds of years. Also they had home advantage.

Complements where they are due, the violent nature of Jocks is well understood South of the Border. It is also nice to know that we are in agreement that 98% of Jock women are plug ugly.

Nutty

I have no doubt your Missus, if Scottish, comes from the other 2%.

In general we keep the attractive ones away from the outsiders, just like we keep the best malt for ourselves.

Slightly off subject.

Maxi, Jocks are actually all right. In a list of 1001 good things about Scotland/Jocks the first 999 are whisky; no 1000, loads of good Scottish soldiers; 1001 several Scottish inventions. Perhaps 1002, good Scottish sailors?

Nutty, you are so smooth talking you should have been a politician,
or a used-car salesman.

I think Nutty would opt for the used car salesman, it has more social standing
