  1. G.A.Phillips says:

    Some try to organize a community, and then again some try to save it, no matter what the cost, how they look, or what people think, say or do to them.

  2. Rachel Edith says:

    “Yeah Texas. We’re from Alaska. Palin sent us. Heard you liked things big. We do too.”

  3. Elmo says:

    Some men see things as they are, and say why.
    I dream things that never were, and say why not?

    No, no …. your other starboard.

    The boat to nowhere.

    High and dry.

    You shoulda seen the one that got away!

    Das Boat the sequel.

    What are you looking at?

  4. Elmo says:

    What’s the problem officer … I wasn’t going too fast was I?

    As more and more PUMA’s abandon ship, Biden was heard to mutter: “we need a smaller boat”.

  5. Michael A says:

    Coast Guard makes sweeping revisions to procurement process after the new amphibious vehicle was delivered from the low-bid contractor.

  6. elliot says:

    Cool, now we don’t have to row anymore.

  7. elliot says:

    Periscope?? Periscope my ass….AHHHH!

  8. frank says:

    We’re gonna need a bigger boat.

  9. Bithead says:

    Transformer technology comes to the Coast Guard

  10. anjin-san says:

    “The fundamentals of the economy are strong”, insisted Captain McCain.

  11. “Anybody who says, ‘We’re going to need a bigger boat,’ swims back.”

  12. Perhaps this explains the 3-2 victory. War Eagle!

  13. John425 says:

    “How high’s the water, Momma?”

    You call this an “Emergency Backup” crew?

    Hard to figure out where the coast is without the Coast Guard.

  14. John425 says:

    They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

    Psalms, 107:23-30, KJV

  15. Coast Guard gets rescued by Texas good ol’ boy with big truck.

    Semper preparis means bringing a little boat with your big trick.

    As the truck drove away, Popeye was heard to say “How embarrassing”

    How bad was the looting? This coast guard boat was looted with the coast guard crew still in it.

    The launch procedures involve a catapult.

    Land? Check, Sea? Check, Air? hmmm, Ensign, start flapping your arms.

  16. markm says:

    “Ok guys, if THIS doesn’t work I say we build a giant wooden Badger and….”

  17. markm says:

    “Capt’n, we gotta rescue how much money from who’s freezer?

  18. markm says:

    Capt’n: “OK, two things, NEXT TIME can someone check if the outboard is in place before we leave the dock??. Second, if one of you A** HOLES starts singing row-row-row your boat….”

  19. Boyd says:

    Instead of once again depending on the Navy to bail them out when they get into deep water, the Coast Guard gets help from the Army this time.

    (Offered by a Navy sailor in the spirit of sibling rivalry)

  20. Autobot or Decepticon?

  21. steve says:

    A three hour tour my ass!

  22. William d'Inger says:

    If the storm surge ain’t this deep, you hafta rescue your own damn self.

  23. Hey! Has that thing got a hemi?

  24. Cheating at the bass fishing tournaments has really got out of hand.

  25. “Well, if this won’t get us featured on an OTB Caption Contest, I give up.”

  26. So much for row versus wade.

  27. I blame Bush.

  28. Maggie Mama says:

    Gee, Lieutenant, where’s Proud Mary?

  29. Maggie Mama says:

    USCG: Lending new meaning to “rolling on the river.”

  30. John425 says:

    First there was “port-side” and “starboard side”.
    Who ever heard of “backside”?

  31. Hodink says:

    “I know. Let’s sing a song. I’ll start. You join in. 99 Bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer, take one down, pass it around, 98 bottles of beer on the wall. 98 Bottles of beer on the wall …”

  32. Hermoine says:

    “Actually Petty Officer, your mama hollered for us to fetch you.”

  33. Dyre42 says:

    Barges? We don’t need no stinking barges!

  34. MikeM says:

    One if by land and two if by sea.

  35. Timmer says:

    Add wings and an office chair, we can cut the Air Force.

  36. Bithead says:

    The picture taken after the two most famous words in history were spoken: “WHAT truck?”

  37. Hodink says:

    “Is there a KFC nearby? I could use me some chicken.”

  38. John425 says:

    Another boondoggle: A half-track, troop-carrying cargo kayak. Congress decided the military needs them.

  39. Bithead says:

    * Wait… Tell me why they call this a “Love Boat” again?

    * OK, Which one of you wants to be the anchor?

    * “This boat leaks”, said Tom balefully.

    * Excuse me… is this the ‘no smoking’ section?

    * Truckboat diplomacy in action

    * Comon’… Everybody sing….”Row Row Row your boat…..”

    * Sure, the FISH got away… but look what they CAUGHT!!

    * Major Tom: I’m floating in a most peculiar way.

    * Look, Mom.. a truck with a floating point processor.

  40. Elmo says:

    Unsure if it be the late hour …. or simply just the brandy. Rubbing his eyes with consternation, Paul Revere puts down his telescope. And reaches for his trusty Magic 8-Ball.
