#2 Stop me if you've heard this one:
A RAB colonel, an assistant superintendent of police and a constable go for a drive at 4am...

#3 A RAB colonel, an assistant superintendent of police and a constable walk into a bar...
The constable politely asks for and receives lemonade.
The Assistant Superintendent of Police asks for and receives a chilled tea.
The RAB Colonel has an ugly Flashback to the War of Liberation and kills everyone in the bar except the Assistant Superintendent of Police and The Constable, who then nod and say Purpa Bangla, 12 Systems, Upazila, Dr. Quincy.

#4 Manolo, order up a literary medal to be awarded to Mr. Shipman! Gold washed, on a red and blue ribbon, so that it clashes with whatever he is wearing. And an iced Perrier with lime for me -- I find myself parched.

#5 I never fail to smile at stories that have happy endings, but sometimes, a little twist would be nice. Along the lines of the Red Shirted Trek crewman who somehow manages to not be dead.
But for now, the lack of employment of the Shutter Gun in this episode will have to suffice.

#6 My friend, USN,Ret., the Shutter Gun is is naught but a construct, very much like the national debt. It is honored, but not feared.
/there, that oughta hold the little fuckers.
