Damn Yankees & Dam Yangtze
"Ah, that's Paul," who unlike Paul McCartney, is dead, that is to say, passed on, hoovering around and sucking up all the air in the room like a "beautiful and very welcome vacuum cleaner" won "in a charity lottery," passing on a suggestion from good Betty Brown (not, by or good golly, to be confused with the unthinkable Miss Molly) employ some of Barnes Wallis's "bouncing bombs" (not to be stored in memory or cached too closely with the bad "Bouncing Bettys for the knees" of To Autumn In Big Sur) to shatter those Syrian dams in order to create Miss Chef in the Arab Spring (also see Gulf Fiction) potboiler already spoiled by Islam, Iraq soup and too many crooks in the ethnic stew. Those mighty works wouldn't stand a Chinaman's Chance against the grand coolie dam busters.
