Bucky Katt: Kate needs a sammich.


From the late, great Douglas Adams:

"There is a feeling which persists in England that making a sandwich interesting, attractive, or in any way pleasant to eat is something sinful that only foreigners do.
'Make 'em dry,' is the instruction buried somewhere in the collective national conciousness, 'make 'em rubbery. If you have to keep the buggers fresh, do it by washing 'em once a week.'
It is by eating sandwiches in pubs on Saturday lunchtimes that the British seek to atone for whatever their national sins have been. They're not altogether clear what those sins are, and don't want to know either. Sins are not the sort of things one wants to know about. But whatever sins there are are amply atoned for by the sandwiches they make themselves eat."

He is only a Lieutenant? For some reason I thought he would have been given a higher rank to start with considering he will be King someday.

Something tells me he wasn't the primary saviour. Was he the one wearing the Nazi uniform a few years ago?

On the US, our royal family drowns innocent young women. In the UK, they save them.
 
2012-08-19 02:28:21 AM  
That is pretty heroic of him to risk his life to save a person in need.

*reads story*

Oh. Never mind then.

Look, good job on rescuing a couple of pidgie newbie surfers who don't know how to get out if a rip current, but tell your grandfather that I really hope he gets better. He still has a lot to teach you, ya git.

No, that was his younger, more partying brother..

He had the helicopter there already. Might as well do something useful with it.
 
2012-08-19 02:43:41 AM  
For his role in rescuing this damsel in distress he should be knighted.

You leave Kate alone. There are enough girls out there who don't need one.

She has the figure I had in my 20s. I wish I still had it. I have no hate. She'll fill out.

In less than a minute, he and the crew had reached the scene and a paramedic was winched down into the sea to assist the exhausted girl, who had just gone under water.

The paramedic, Master Aircrew "Harry" Harrison,


It never directly says it but I take it William was flying the helicopter while Harry went down for her?

That is a bizarre school of sharks circling you. Did you survive the attack?

My neighbor has a stunning wife, but she is not very bright, and kind of a harpy with her kids.

Isn't Bangor pronounced bain-gore?

Your bio picture.
 
2012-08-19 04:02:50 AM  
Barely an honorable mention for the rest of the crew? I'm much more impressed with the diver who grabbed the girl than the dork who's primary responsibility is to not put the heli in the water.

I think, if given the choice, he would rather just do his job and have everyone STFU about it. But the press over there go crazy if he so much as passes someone the salt, much less be involved in a rescue. They barely mention the crew and others involved in saving her, which is more to do with their obsession with royalty than any grandstanding on his part.

And no she doesn't.

Ah! Got it. Yes. In fact, took them out sharkin' today on the pontoon boat. My apologies. What might have been said face to face and humorous comes off as flat out weird (to me) online since you are a strangerDANGER :)
 
2012-08-19 04:42:57 AM  
So what exactly did he do?
 
2012-08-19 04:43:50 AM  
When a prince save a girl's life, doesn't she have to marry him or become chattel or something?

"Kate, honey, something happened at work today and now I have to fark this teenage girl, it's protocol..."
 
2012-08-19 04:57:51 AM  

Harry_Seldon: You are a jaded, sad group of sots.


Agreed. The guy deserves credit, just as if he were any other search and rescue pilot. Belittling his actions is kind of insulting to people who do that kind of work. The hero tag is appropriate.

Also I think it's really commendable that he's chosen to do such "normal" work as serve in the RAF. The guy is genuinely trying to contribute to society for god's sake. Why the cynicism?

Contrast this to the BS that other leaders do... If this were Putin then the drowning girl would have been an actress and the whole thing would have been staged.

I believe he's a helicopter pilot.

yes, but apparantly that is news and something to be commended for these days....

Just because she's not a fat American doesn't mean she needs a sammich. She's hot.
