The winners:

1st AprilGabby: Rumsfeld chuckling, “For God’s sakes man, someone taped a ‘I am hung like a donkey’ sign on your back.”

2nd Nan: Get down with your bad self… Rumsfeld and Franks entertain the troups with an impromptu rap.

3rd Daniel Morris: U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and CENTCOM’s boss, General Tommy Franks explain to an live audience what a short, little pip-squeak former Iraqi “strongman“Saddam Hussein turned out to be. “He doesn’t even come up to here,†said Mr. Rumsfeld. Not to be out-done, General Franks replies, “I’ve got more ‘strong man’ in my little pinky than that SOB! He’s the size of an ace of spades. Hoo-ah!â€

Usually, longer entries don’t do well in OTB caption contests, but Daniel’s mini-play was fairly entertaining.

  4. Natalie says:

    April is Gabby’s inner woman? All this time I was calling her Jean…

    That’s definitely a gabby-ism right there, though.

    James, James, one of these days you are just going to have to accept that I am not just only funny to look at. 🙂

    I win!!!!!

  6. Natalie says:

    6’3 and wearing nylons? Are you my husband?!?

  7. James Joyner says:

    Heh. Fixed now. There were no lines separating the comments, which made it hard to figure out who said what. I’ve got a separator between them, now.
