Recently Canada purchased a submarine from Great Britain....Yes, we had our very own submarine.....So, we go to the The office of the Prime Minister of Canada......

"So, tell me...Do we have that submarine I just bought for the Canadian Navy? I mean, we gotta show those Ruskies that they can't just show up and claim the Arctic!""

"Yes, Prime Minister," answered Captain Smith, of the RCN.." We took delivery of it last week."

"You know, I got it from the British Navy. It was a steal at 600 million....Canada now has it's very own ATTACK sub.! I really pulled one over on the Brits!!! Only 600 million....I really fooled the Brits on this one..! By the way, I already called George in Washington and told him..we got our very own ATTACK sub....."

"Prime Minister..the submarine we bought....."

"You mean the ATTACK sub...like the way that sounds...ATTACK....can't wait for George to see OUR attack sub....maybe he'll get off his high horse about Canada not doing enough....well..we have an ATTACK sub..maybe we should sail it down to Norfolk..ya know...show the American's Canada's ATTACK sub...."

"Mr. Prime Minister....the Attack sub....won't float.."

"Pardon?"

"The attack sub we bought from Great Britain......won't float."

"Captain Smith...you ARE a navy man, true?"

"Yes, Mr. Prime Minister.."

"Well, in case you didn't know..a submarine....an ATTACK submarine....isn't supposed to FLOAT...it submerges..hence..submarine..I, mean, really.."

"Mr. Prime Minister...it won't float because..it sinks....."

"Waddya mean..it sinks?"

"Like it goes down...."

"Yea..."

"And won't come back up."

"What do you mean won't come back up? What's it do?"

"Well, Sir, it just lies on the bottom and...stays there."

"Well, that's no good..how's it to attack something if it just lies there...ya mean...the sub won't go?"

"That's about right, Sir.."

"Wait a minute.....we bought that sub from the Brits...for 600 million.... and you're telling me it won't work."

"That's what I'm saying...."

"I thought the British were our friends......they sold me an attack submarine for 600 million and it won't attack...it won't float....it sinks....I'm Sunk! What'll I tell George...."

"Also.."

"Ya mean, there's more?"

"This sub that the Brit's sold us.....they offered it to Switzerland....for free...they wouldn't take it."

"Oh, this get's better....anything else?"

"No, Sir, that about covers it."

"Say, I wonder if we can sell it to the Aussies...."

So that's where the RCS Sinky Boat Thingy ended up after the first TP Novel came to a close. We always wondered what happened to it. Okay, so it was a bit leaky with that big hole in it - it wouldn't have been sinky otherwise. But it just figures the Brits would get their bloody hands on it and sell it back to the Canuckistanis. They probably stole all of the Guinness it was carrying too. Though, the Canucks wouldn't know what to do with that much Guinness - it's not Molson or LaBatts after all...
