We need a name for the de plane.

I'm ready to start dropping some bombs ...

which, with my sense of humor, shouldn't be all that surprising ...

I know that he was posting on the big initial assignment thread.

If he's under a table at a British pub, maybe you can take over naming the plane. You can then claim moral high ground if he doesn't like it.

I think I'll wait a little while and see if he checks in ... or send him a message via carrier pigeon ...

How about "The Keg" for the name of our Fort.

PS-In real life, I'm a Navy Aircrewmen. But my job is not quite as exciting as flying and fighting in a B-17.

Zebedee DuBois
01-21-2004, 05:28 PM
Looks like our crew doesn't show up at the plane at the same time.

I had suggested earlier, Nattering Nabobs of Napalm. but I am quite OK with The Keg or The Kegger. Maybe the Dynamite Keg. Captain keg can make the call.

Zebedee DuBois
01-21-2004, 08:44 PM
Or.... Nein, Mein Freulein.... works in our plane number, and conveys a negative sentiment towards a german.

Perhaps someone could make a naked chick superimposed over a face of Hitler so that his mustache is her mustache "down below".

Or perhaps something that you guys think of, which would undoubtedly be much better.

I guess I could live with the Kegger if everybody else can. I'm not much for graphic artistry, so someone a little more adept would need to come up with the nose art. I do like the "I'd tap that" idea. :thumb:

It would have been nice to hit something of Hitler's, instead of plowing some farmers field - but, "Wait 'till next time" (the rallying cry of all but 1 team in the NFL).

Nice flying Capt. keg. The raido room will be playing "Sky Pilot" and "Radar Love" throughout the next mission.
