- The Wuxi China Expatdom's Admiral Lloyd Bridges has teamed-up with newly-arrived emigre-Expat, Dr Spock, to film a training video, 'Survival on Lake Taihu with Doctor Spock when Your Ship Sinks'.
- The film is aimed-at newcomers to Lake Taihu, the famed Wuxi inland-sea. An immense and
exquisitely-beautiful lake, it can prove deceptive at times, and the Admiral believes that the uninitiated Expats need to know basic survival-skills should they find themselves adrift.
- The Fleet Admiral wrote the script himself, drawing-upon his vast experience in naval matters.
"During the war, the 1912 war with the Nanjing Expatdom, I was stranded in one of these before.
"Let's think, huh?", he adds sagely, "that is the first law of survival".
- Among the thousands of enthralled onlookers aboard the WCE Fleet's super-carrier Barry Goldwater were Archduke Moore, and, the English Teacher Andis Kaulins; both of whom are seasoned frogmen.
Bomb-Proof Moore hailed the new video as being 'essential'. "One day I myself was stranded on the depths of Lake Taihu with only my water-wings, and I was lucky to survive. It was in mid-summer, and the heat made me delirious out there", he explained.
"Without water, and under that blazing sun, I began to see things. I saw Omar Sharif riding his camel across Lake Taihu". "But Prince Leonard of Nimoy happened to be out there on his sailing-boat, and luckily he saved me from a watery end".
- Local officials said that although the video will be screened in all the Expatdom's megaplex cinemas, Doctor Spock's resident-visa for the Expatdom has not been approved yet, after objections were voiced by WCE conservatives.
