Sorry ....I just couldn't resist sharing this one...
The following is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations, between a US naval ship and
Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in Oct. 1995.
Reprinted in the Memorial University campus newspaper -

Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

Canadians: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: This is the captain of a US Navy ship, I say again, divert YOUR course.

Canadians: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS MISSOURI. WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!

Canadians: THIS IS A LIGHTHOUSE. Your call.-
