    ACTUAL transcript of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. This radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on 10-10-95.
    Americans: "Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision."

    Canadians: "Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision."

    Americans: "This is the captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course."

    Canadians: "No, I say again, you divert YOUR course."

    Americans: "THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. THAT'S ONE-FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP."

    Canadians: "This is a lighthouse. Your call."

    (actually an urban legend, but hilarious anyway :)
