Chief, "As RFC uses red shirts in the Honor Harrington series to raise money for charity this MEME from the Star Trek fandom seams appropriate:"

By Poker and Mange.

[Lead Singer] Well you may ask why we stay on a planet trying to kill us, with a flawed Gene fix that dooms most of our male children for that I have but one word: [cue music]

[Lead singer]
Religion, religion! Religion!
Religion, religion! Religion!

[lead singer & PAPAS]
Who, day and night, must scramble for a living,
Feed a wife and children, say his daily prayers?
And who has the right, as master of the house,
To have the final word at home?
The Papa, the Papa! Religion.
The Papa, the Papa! Religion.

[Lead female singer & MAMAS]
Who must know the way to make a proper home,
A quiet home, a kosher home?
Who must raise the family and run the home,
So Papa's free to read the holy books?
The Mama, the Mama! Religion!
The Mama, the Mama! Religion!

[SONS]
At three, I started Church of Humanity Unchained school. At ten, I learned a trade.
I hear they've picked a bride for me. I hope she's pretty.
The son, the son! Religion!
The son, the son! Religion!

[DAUGHTERS]
And who does Mama teach to mend and tend and fix,
Preparing me to marry whoever Papa picks?
The daughter, the daughter! Religion!
The daughter, the daughter! Religion!

"Kolokoltsov, why do you always get so sick every time you hear talk of the RMN?"

"I'm lactose intolerant."

"What does that have to do with anything?!"

"It's that damn Harrington. She's the 'milk of human kindness.'"

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

The war is over and Honor has made it back to Sphinx. She and Nimitz goes for a visit in the brush...

"What's in that pot that smells so good?"

<It's alphabet soup Honor? It isn't ready yet>

"I smell the celery and the rabbit. What else it need?"

<Nimitz is bringing it. Mesan B C D...>

"What happened to A?"

<That's in that bigger pot. Supply and demand. Top of the Line>

"Oyster Bay sure was a success, son."

"It sure was dad. Even the Manties speak highly of it."

"They do?"

"Of course. Didn't you read what they're saying about it?"

"What?"

"Ya Whatta Strike!"

" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: " " :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: "

Absolutely. Or as the Andermani may say...


Wer zuletzt lacht, lacht am besten.

English equivalent: He who laughs last, laughs longest.

Sometimes, he who laughs last is the joke.
