    • Max Greevey: I don't know if it was Gunga Din or Auster, but one of them screwed the pooch.

      Gunga Din is a poem by Rudyard Kipling about a native water-carrier who assists a British soldier. The reference in question is a rather crass comparison between Indian doctor Raza and the fictional Gunga Din. The term 'screwed the pooch' has been traced back to 1918, initially refered to as 'feeding the dog'. Although there are numerous meanings attributed to the phrase now, it generally refers to when one slacks off at their job, which can often lead to bad things happening.
