As he doled out our greasy desserts,

#9 to be fair Glenmore, it wasn’t anything John did that caused the USS Forest Fire: if anything the loose ordn ance could have been caused by a sloppy Ordie. (note: i dont say that lightly as most ordjes i worked with were true pros, but sometimes sh!t happens)
