After First Bull Run, a popular ditty in Richmond was:

With Rifle and Musket,
With Shell and Petard,
We salute the North with our Beauregard.

"These things must be done delicately-- or you hurt the spell."  - The Wicked Witch of the West.
"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.
