    [TD="width: 100%, bgcolor: transparent"]The following is the transcript of an actual radio conversation in October 1995, between a US Navy ship and The British authorities, near the coast of England. The transcript was released by the Ministry of Defence on 10/10/95.


    BRITISH: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South, to avoid collision.

    U.S.NAVY: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the North, to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    U.S.NAVY: This is the Captain of US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

    BRITISH: Negative. I say again. You will have to divert your course.

    U.S.NAVY: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS 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 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

    BRITISH: We are a lighthouse. F*ck off

    I heard this urban myth when I joined the Marines in 1981.

    Indeed, were you to wikipedia "Lighthouse and naval vessel", you would read that it stems from a 1939 joke.
