How to use submarine in a sentence?

  1. Elon Musk:

    No, just like [ Unsworth ] didn't clarify he wanted to sodomize me with a submarine. I didn't think it required clarification, i think that would have been worse. If you called someone a motherf' er I don't think you would have to clarify you don't actually commit incest. It would sound disingenuous.

  2. Mark Ferguson:

    According to Russian Navy Chief Adm. Chirkov, the 'intensity' of Russian submarine patrols has risen by almost 50% over the last year.

  3. Ankit Panda:

    This, to my eye, is the submarine that the U.S. intelligence community has been calling the Sinpo-C, a successor to North Korea's only known ballistic missile submarine.

  4. Bill Shine:

    And you know what, I'm the first person to admit I'm sexist. I don't think that girls should play on the boys' high school team. I don't think that the girls should be -- I think it's insanity that there are feminists who are stupid enough to fight to go to combat. Are you kidding me? Let the men go die on the front lines, why would you want to go die on the front line? You have to be an idiot. And why on earth would you fight to go on the submarine ship for months on end? You know there was just a story with these girls, these women who are upset that they are sexually harassed in the military. What do you think is going to happen when you go on a submarine for 12 months with 4,000 horny soldiers? I hate to say it, but it's true. They should not even be allowed. The top military should say, 'No way, you're not allowed.' But you know, but you know the feminists have fought for these rights. It's so stupid. I don't know why anybody would want that.

  5. Prince Phillip:

    If it had got four legs and is not a chair, if it has two wings and it flies, but is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it. (commenting on Chinese eating habits at a 1986 World Wildlife Fund coference)
