UPDATED: The creature emerging is a frilled shark, Chlamydoselachus anguineus, thought to be extinct. On January 21, 2007 a specimen was found alive off the coast southwest of Tokyo.
There was a peculiar exclamation uttered by our senior chief auxilaryman on those rare occasions when vital systems went very, very wrong.
Nowhere else in the Navy, or civilian life have I ever heard his 2-word utterance. It was so profoundly profane and colorful in just two words that it origins must surely have been ancient.
Hearing it for the first time in a submarine experiencing vital control problems at a menacing depth would have been highly discomfitting had there been the slightest time to dwell on it.
It sent an evil chill up your spine with a sense of urgency just to hear it. I have never entertained repeating it. The chief got around his subs, so I am certain many others must be familiar with his two-word exclamation.
Reflect on the image in your own dream and perhaps the blasphemous concept will dawn on you. But, why would anyone want to intentionally do that? It is fair to say that most people would never connect the two words in their lifetimes, much less in a single sentence. So, you have the picture and this YouTube:
