All aboard the U.S.S. Fabulous!
SAN DIEGO Rep. Bob Filner has called on the Navy to name a ship after slain gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk, who served as a Navy officer in the early 1950s.
In a letter to Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Filner said naming a ship after Milk would be a great tribute to Milks support for equality and in keeping with effort(s) to promote equality in our military after the recent repeal of the dont ask, dont tell policy.
Milk served as a diving officer aboard a submarine rescue ship and later as a diving instructor stationed in San Diego.
Filner, a candidate for mayor of San Diego, said, I will continue to work with the GLBT (gay-lesbian-bisexual-transsexual) Historic Task Force of San Diego County to promote the legacy of our nations first openly gay elected official, Harvey Milk.
They need to name a ship after him that they use to recover the seals. The rear end of the ship drops down and then the seaman can enter it.
USS C!@# Sucker?
USS Rump Ranger?
USS Fudge Packer?
USS Pillow Biter?
USS Cigar Smoker?
USS Pole Pushers?
USS Hotdog Eaters?
USS Donut Punchers?
USS Ham Slammer?
USS Protein Burpers?
USS Tumble Bunnies?
USS Butt Pilots?
USS Cabana Boys?
USS Stool Pushers?
USS Backseat Drivers?
USS Tail Gunners?
USS Sword Swallowers?
USS Jingle Boys?
The only place a sailor who served on the Harry Milk would be able to use the name of his ship would be on liberty in san Francisco.
A fairy boat!
They SHOULD name the ship after this “gay activist hero”...then paint the ship with a gigantic bullseye where the bullseye is centered on the conning tower. Man it with only self-professed queers and let them lead every “charge”...:-)
It’s nickname will be the “Twinkie”
Yep, rename it the pooper deck.
It only has two speed settings...
Reverse and Ramming Speed
The USS ‘Anal Explorer’?
Well,at least will be full of seamen
This thread is as funny as the one allowing Muslim men to have sex with their dead wives.
I think I might watch Leno tonight.
instead of naming the whole vessel after him, how about a plaque over the hole that lets the bilge out. Call it the Glory Hole in honor of the glorious career of the famous homosexual activist.
Good ship Lolly C—K!
Just silliness. Bob Filner jumped the shark a long time ago.
How about the “USS Ignominious”?
Though, in context to Mister Milk, the best name of all would be the “USS Twinkie”. If you know the context.
I object because he never once did any memorable war hero sh!t. Just like the USS Gabby Giffords.
We've crossed the threshold of the ludicrous.
