Disclaimer: The 'Siren' dolphin badge may have been provided by someone connected with 'the boats'.   By bringing this bizarre coincidence to readers' attention M.E. is not recommending the underlying movie, which Rotten Tomatoes currently rates a 39%, and more than a few reviewers called 'low budget'. In fairness, it is an unrated, independent movie with sight gags, puns and a talented cast having a good time.  In my opinion, 90 minutes was overlong. 

Submarines are always silent and strange.
