:roll: There was a similar joke on one of the Danny Kaye programs, and the answer was "Your Flagship". :)

That's an interesting bit of dialect. I once read a story by a British author (Alan Sillitoe, I believe) where a character says "I'm goin' to 'ang messen, mate."—meaning "I'm going to hang myself"—which sounds similar, so that must be the Cockney version of "macel".

This one I heard from Scottish comedian Billy Connolly:


Two Englishmen, two Irishmen, two Scotsmen, and two Welshmen, the only survivors of a shipwreck, struggle to shore on an uninhabited island.

A year passes. At the end of that year:

The two Welshmen have started a choir.

The two Scotsmen have started a distillery.

The two Irishmen are still fighting on the beach.

The two Englishmen are still waiting to be formally introduced.
