Thread Name: You've heard of a place called Benghazi
Subject: RE: You've heard of a place called Benghazi
One of Kipling's best "barrack-room ballads", BTW.

The Benghazi song, also BTW, is first cousin to the sardonic "Dying Aviator" ("Take the manifold out of my larynx...And assemble the engine again"), which parodies "The Tarpaulin Jacket."
