The U.S.S. Malaise

The navy is going to commission an attack submarine named after Jimmy ``Malaise`` Carter? Carter is the guy who gutted the military in the late `70`s and commissioned the only non-nuclear sub in decades. He gave us double digit inflation, double digit interest rates, high unemployement, and an energy crisis. If the Carter is true to her template she`ll be a leaky, fuel guzzling vessel (trailed by a fleet of fuel ships), slow as molasses, with few, substandard weaponry. Her crew will hate serving aboard her (suffering malaise)and she`ll end up abandoned on some foreign shore in a failed military exercise. The name bodes very ill.

I sure wouldn`t want to serve aboard a ship named after ``America Held Hostage`` Carter!

I couldn't agree more. Do you think the name alone is enough to strike terror into the hearts of our enemies? I know it scares me.

Carter and an attack submarine -- somehow I'm reminded of the story he once told of being attacked by a swimming killer rabbit and having to beat it off with his canoe oar. I agree that the name bodes very ill -- what if the sub came across a DIVING as well as swimming attack rabbit? The navy really can't afford to take such chances!

Perhaps this sub will have room for a battalion of navy seebee's and they can build a "habitat" for these desperately needy swimming/diving killer rabbits in the tradition of the ships namesake. They may even be able to use leftover canoe paddles to do it. I'm getting the chills just thinking about it all. I wonder if I'm coming down with some sort of malaise?

The U.S.S. Malaise is right on the money.
