      *chuckle* His infamous comment on Royal Navy tradition, re: "...rum,
      sodomy, and the lash", would not seem to indicate any great fondness
      for the Senior Service, however. And it certainly didn't win him any
      friends among naval officers. If issued at an earlier point in history,
      one can easily envision it provoking Lord Nelson himself to seek
      satisfaction from the surly Churchill...
