    They’re burning their brains in the backroom,
    Really setting the cortex alight,
    To find a thing that will gor crack-boom,
    And blow up a Xenobathite.

    White Hyde a.k.a. Britishengingeer couldn’t hide a secret any longer: The deadly top-secret torpodo ingredient is actually a ginger.

    White Hyde? I believe his name was Whitehead. They must be confused with Wilfred Hyde-White, who was often seen on the beeb (BBC).

    A lesbian feminist once told me, that guns rifles and most weapons are phallic symbols, because they were designed by men.

    Everytime I try to imagine what weapons would look like, if they were designed by women, I fall on the floor laughing.

    Torpedoes are great for concealing boats. One minute the boat is there, next minute it’s not.

    @DnT. I was imagining this device, which somehow projected a large slotted hole at your opponent. This large slot then enveloped him, and crushed to an unrecognisable pulp.

    These torpedoes have great concealing and killing capacities. The trouble is, we can’t control whether it will conceal you or kill you if you get shot by one. We have our best Britishengingeers working on it now…

    Yes, but the Germans are eons ahead of us in their technology for the war of the words. Witness “Donau­dampf­schiffahrts­elektrizitäten­haupt­betriebs­werk­bau­unter­beamten­gesellschaft”. That’s a genuine, grammatically correct word.
