Cower, Iranian Nit-Wits!

“Boarding two helicopters, they left for their base in Devon, where they are to be debriefed and to undergo medical and psychological checkups, said Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup, the chief of the defense staff.”

-from the New York Times, emphasis most assuredly mine.

Sir Jock Stirrup!!! Is this a belated April Fool’s joke on us limeys? How did we get from Bomber Harris to Jock Stirrup? No wonder the Dinner Jacket feels he can snatch up British sailors with impunity. Can Sir Jock at least please change his name to Sir Biggus Dickus? What’s the name of our field chief marshal one wonders – Lord Muffy Jodhpur?

(Above: image of what Sir Jock must look like.)
