There is serious irony there. Check out this quote discussing the PT action at Surigao Strait:

The hit on Abukuma was an accident. The torpedo was aimed at a different target, but missed. At the time of launch Abukuma was not even visibile from the attacker, PT-137.

Poor Abukuma, eternally doomed to suffer accidental damage at the hands of PT Boats!

He lost a PT Boat...

I on the other hand did take some Major Flotation damage.

But let's call it a glancing collison...nobody lost a bow...

One is left with the image of a herd of elephants screeching, trumpeting and standing on their hind legs whilst a bunch of mice run around their toes.

More ships more chance of them bumping into one another. It is a rare happening.
