Chicken Of The Sea


Juana La Loca

Don't know if anyone has been following developments of the Costa Concordia story. In a world where everyone gets a trophy just for showing up and sensitivity for "feelings" trumps buckling down and getting the job done, no matter how unpleasant; Italian Coast Guard Captain Gregorio De Falco (great name!) rightfully busted a cap on Francesco Schettino, the putative captin of the Concordia.

Translated full transcript Here

Choice Excerpts:

De Falco: "I understand that, listen, there are people that are coming down the pilot ladder of the prow. You go up that pilot ladder, get on that ship and tell me how many people are still on board. And what they need. Is that clear? You need to tell me if there are children, women or people in need of assistance. And tell me the exact number of each of these categories. Is that clear? Listen Schettino, that you saved yourself from the sea, but I am going to … really do something bad to you … I am going to make you pay for this. Go on board, (expletive)!"

Schettino: "Commander, please …"

De Falco: "No, please. You now get up and go on board. They are telling me that on board there are still …"

------------------------------

Schettino: "I am not going because the other lifeboat is stopped."

De Falco: "You go aboard. It is an order. Don't make any more excuses. You have declared 'abandon ship'. Now I am in charge. You go on board! Is that clear? Do you hear me? Go, and call me when you are aboard. My air rescue crew is there."

------------------------------

Schettino: "But do you realise it is dark and here we can't see anything …"

De Falco: "And so what? You want to go home, Schettino? It is dark and you want to go home? Get on that prow of the boat using the pilot ladder and tell me what can be done, how many people there are and what their needs are. Now!"

--------------------

Schettino .... "to schettino" -: to act like a sniveling pantywaist. Antonym of : "to sullenberger"

De Falco should run for Italian PM in the wake of bungacsoni.
