And he said that "stick his submarine where it hurts" was a suggestion that he "engage in a sexual act with the mini-sub". How very literal! I have never taken the stick-it-where-the-Sun-don't-shine...

I would say Piggies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upJB1XZQU0k), were it not for the fact that the subject is plural. Otherwise quite appropriate, especially the "damn good whacking."
