Sub Bump Triomp

Say that ten times fast: Sub Bump Triomp(hant).

A French sub and an English sub walk into a bar ... no wait, that's the beginning of a joke. What sounds almost as bad is that the French nuclear submarine Le Triomphant and UK nuclear submarine HMS Vangaurd collided with each other in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean during routine patrols, because neither sub detected the other.

Sheesh! Come on guys, those things are loaded. What's going on lately? -- first Russian satellites, then nuclear submarines. Next thing you know we'll be batting down asteroids with the things.

"Look. Look, Jacques. You take the left side, I'll take the right. And for heaven's sake, be careful."

Feel Lucky for more reassuring French military escapades.
