On the horn of Africa, just at the mouth of the Red Sea, is a tiny little country called Djibouti (pronounced "ji-BOO-tee"). Due to its strategic position near such things as Somalia and the Persian Gulf, the U.S. has a strong military presence there. And, as over the years, I've come to know a fair number of militarily-associated folks, I find that on a fairly regular basis I hear about stuff going on in or around Djibouti.

But, my brain being what it is, I find myself stifling giggles whenever the topic is brought up, because I invariably spend the conversation hearing from the back of my head:

Choo-choo, choo-choo Djibouti!
Woo-woo, woo-woo Djibouti!
Choo-choo, choo-choo Djibouti!
Take me right back to the track, Jack!

It's a hard head to live in, sometimes.
