Chap Finds A Winner

Chapomatic found what appears to be a video of Taiwanese submariners doing... something... on stage that is not to be missed:

As Chap says:
I know that submariners have a lot in common, but I don’t remember any other submariners doing something like this sober. I guess you have to be pretty hardcore, and a little nuts, to drive around in Guppies these days.
I really like the rendition of the Submarine Song, though…
Their version of the Submarine Song is very similar to ours, except they probably don't get arrested for singing it in public like we do.

Now that would spice up a change of command ceremony!

Seems they've saved up all their craziness from not getting half-way nights, shellback or blue-noses. Don't think they actually take out those old Guppy and Zwaardis boats very often.

I hear you on the getting arrested for the sub song comment. Just prior to this years Sub Ball here in Bangor. (The first one we did in Seattle, on the enlisted side) our COB put out that anyone from San Francisco caught singing the submarine song would face consequenses. The reasoning supposedly was the the MCPON was our guest speaker and we didn't want to embarrass ourselves. I have to believe that this came from higher up though becouse our COB is about as cool as they come.

I don't know what it is about "I've been working onthe railroad" and Asian cultures, but this reminded me of a banquet following an Intel conference in Seoul which involved lots of North Korean sochu and a group of ROK O-5s and O-6s taking the stage to regale us with their "American song". Something truly surreal about watching senior allied officers droning on about Dinah and banjoes with all seriousness and determination.
