Callsign of the day

Callsign "SLAB"

I was out at Fallon for an SFARP and waiting on a mass brief to start. The CO orXO (can't remember which) of VF-101 was waiting as one of their new RIO's walked in. Must have been about 5'6", we thought he might have been someone's son. Well the CO or XO proceded to tell everyone his call sign. SLAB... Short Little A$$ B!tch. I about died laughing, as did everyone else in the room.
