I actually second that to an extent. One bloke I had to do some work for at Bechtel was the biggest, most arrogant, most up-his-own-arse, port-building megacunt that I've ever met.

I agree 100% Do they have a 'Secret Training Establishment' on the Uther Side of Accrington? (USA)

However, I did have the honour to meet the said 'most arrogant, most up-his-own-arse, port-building megacunt that I've ever met' when he arrived at my office in Manila a couple of years later! - Then the 'Boot was on the other Foot!' - He had then become a 'most arrogant, most up-his-own-arse, Airport building megacunt!' - They arrived with an entourage, and were told very politely to **** Off!

Dear Busybee,
I would like to plunder your booty, like a ravenous Somalian pirate pillaging the coastlines 800km off the Serengeti.

Love and regards

Obviously the Somalian Pirates have amphibious vehicles now - The Serengeti is land locked and some 800km from the Indian Ocean...
