The South China Sea became the setting for a naval confrontation reminiscent of Admiral nelson and the battle of Trafalgar which once and for all settled the British possession of the square by the same name. This time the major players appeared to be the a US Mercant Marine unarmed monster ship and five Chinese Junks.
The Junks surrounded the American mega- Boat in a classic manuever from John Paul Jones' War at Sea Classic, Give me Liberty until you see the whites of their eyes for I have not yet Begun to fight!!
The Merchant marine vessel outflanked the Chunks(a naval term referring to China's noble sailing craft, the Junk) by inundating the crews with torrents of water from high powered hoses first used by famous southern Admiral Bull Conner in his sea fight on segregation lake.
The crews aboard the Chunks responded by stripping themselves naked and waving their junk at the Mariner Merchants.
At this point of incredibility, Pythoner star and now director, John Cleese emerged from the film vessel and shouted: "Cut!" The Chunk crew covered their junk in panic and the And Now for Something Completely Different Sousa March was struck up as the credits rolled in Cleese's latest comic opera, "One Man's junk is another Man's Nasty Bits"
