If this isn't variety - you're substantially the greatest denier! Ud 07/04/13

Lock and load grunts.  We’re attacking and I want a performance with more balls than a training session at Old Trafford.  It’s going to be tough, but we will give a good account of ourselves and not yield like a salt covered slug.

That’s a negative!

No Feelgood, that’s a positive.  I can’t believe my ears.

Damn, that’s bad if you can’t trust your listening tackle, trust your instinct instead.

Where’s your balls man?

Where they always are and I intend to keep them there.

Wrong answer, they’re in my hands and if you don’t man up, kiss these babies goodbye.  Got it?

(A nod of acceptance follows).

Now unless anybody else has got any objection, can we get this shit over with?

Oh yes, brilliant, can’t bloody wait.  Personally, I prefer to put death on hold and make the grim reaper wait just a tad longer because according to rumour, he’s keen to blunt his blade.  So do you want to resist the sharpness of his scythe and delay knocking on heaven’s door?

FFS man!  Do you have to be more dramatic than a Shakespearean tragedy.  You could depress the hands of a clock into not ticking anymore.  Of your pal the reaper, if we make it through this, I’ll give you an enthusiastic shove in the right direction.

Err, do we have any ID or intel on the enemy’s tactics and what about manoeuvres?  Oh great, it’s starting to rain and you know how much I hate...

A group of Predators defending their base pummeled them with more paint than a decorating firm but they were thankful to escape with their lives.

Still, I suggest this experience was a little less painful...
