: In response the the jibe to US servicemen in Europe during WWII of "Over-paid, over-sexed, and over here", there was a comeback aimed at the Brits. It was "Under-paid, under-sexed, and under Eisenhower."

A message from old Europe... Not that I would want to cause friction, what with our glorious UK/US leaders being so in love, but the real gibe is in the part of this phrase that I left out - 'overdue'.
