Years ago, there was an old tale in the Submarine Service about a lieutenant who inspected his sailors and told the COB (Chief of Boat) that they smelled bad.

The Lieutenant suggested that they change their underwear. Aye, aye sir, I'll see to it immediately.

He went into the crew quarters and said, The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear.

Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy you change with Brown,and Witkowski you change with Minotti. Get to it.

The moral: A candidate may promise 'change' in Washington, but don't count on things smelling any better.
