I can just see it now. George and Dick at one of their Thursday night "get-togethers"
Dick: George, we've got to do something about this Saddam monster. He's out to nuke the world. He's only weeks away from using the "big one" on us.
George: I don't know Dick. What if you're wrong.
Dick: Damn it George, don't make me come over there !
George: OK, OK, ..........You're sure about this ?
Dick: Damn Tootin'
George: Well, it you're sure...........................................................................
