Re: Things You Hear on the Radio

I don't know if this is funny or what, but it happened this past weekend in NYC.

A bit of a paraphrased for Boat 1, but I think I got Boat 2's response down. All on channel 16.

Boat 1 (I got the feeling it was a professional captain on a ferry or other charter boat): CG, there is a French flagged sailboat acting erratically by the Statute of Liberty. The boat is sailing right into me and altering course at the last second. Can you please stop and search them?

Boat 2 (I assume the offending boat, but not in a French accent): I'm going to find out where you dock and rape and kill your family.

Didn't hear much more after that.

Is the dog included in the "family"? If so, that's really harsh. Sounds like a frenchie.
