Manly Quote of the Day: Captain Queeg

I kid you not. - this common statement has been originally attributed to Lieutenant Commander Philip Francis Queeg, USN, a fictional character in the 1951 Pulitzer prize novel, The Caine Mutiny, by Herman Wouk. The book was adapted into a 1951 movie featuring Humphrey Bogart

from the book:

Lt. Commander Philip Francis Queeg: Mr. Keith, you are now appointed the morale officer. In addition to your other duties, you are to see that shirttails are tucked inside trousers.

Lt. Keith: Aye, aye, sir.

Lt. Commander Philip Francis Queeg: If I see one more shirttail flapping while I’m captain of this ship – woe betide the sailor; woe betide the OOD; and woe betide the morale officer. I kid you not.
