Mistress and Commander

2004-01-29 17:13:22.3964+00 by petronius 4 comments

According to the Telegraph of London, the first woman to command a Royal Navy warship has taken over HMS Brecon, and is busy tracking gunrunners off the coast of Northern Ireland. I wonder what Hornblower would say?

I suspect the Daily Mirror will run a headline.... "Rum, Sodomy, and the Lass" and if they don't, it would make a jolly good porn title.

I've got a camera, maybe we can rent out the Hawaiian Chieftan for a few hours?

Wouldn't be the first time Sausalito ended up as the backdrop in a porn film...

Sausalito might work, but can Ron Jeremy do a Belfast accent?

Forgive me, it's the stifled writer in me..... but I can see a storyboard.

Ron Jeremy stars as, of course, the Rear Admiral. He's coming to inspect the lady's... uh... vessel. He arrives, but notices he wasn't properly piped aboard, so the lovely captain proceeds to "pipe him" aboard. Later scenes involve another member of the crew looking at Jeremy and noticing the "large swells tonight," Jeremy ordering the captain to let him inspect the poop deck, some interesting things done with the rigging rope as crew members strike the sails, and it wouldn't be complete without some sorta take-off on the Titanic Dicaprio/Winslett "I'm flying" scene on the bow of the ship.

Or perhaps I'm just a pervert..... and not a stifled writer..... or perhaps, both.
