    “Same-sex ballroom dancing lessons are a key part of the Navy’s revamped sensitivity training. Yes, there was some slight hit to combat effectiveness to pay for this, but proponents contend that it’s a key part of building the more mindful, emotionally sensitive military of the future.”

  2. Tony W says:

    Just listen for a minute! We could put a davenport over there, with a lovely duvet. Televisions are dreadfully ugly, but if you insist it could be across the room by the kitchen. Oh Herb, I think we can do this!!

  3. John Burgess says:

    “I’m sorry, sir, but we’re now entering US Territorial Waters. Please undress and stand over there while we get the scanner warmed up.”

  4. Jenos Idanian #13 says:

    “In your honor, Mr. Vice President, we’ve renamed this part of the ship the ‘Biden Deck.'”

    “That’s quite an honor. What was it called before?”

    “The poop deck.”

  5. Jenos Idanian #13 says:

    (with apologies to James Carville)

    When asked, the sailor pointed to the nearby life preservers to be tossed should a sailor fall overboard. He discreetly didn’t point to the latest addition in case Vice President Biden fell overboard — a handy anchor.

  6. Mu says:

    Yes Mr. President, the safety line was installed after Mr. Biden went overboard. We continue searching.

  7. Jenos Idanian #13 says:

    “OK, sailor, here’s what you do: if those guys in the boats were pirates, you take a shotgun and fire two blasts straight up into the air. I guarantee you that’ll scare them off.”

    “Um… Mr. Vice President… if we shoot straight up in here, we’ll hit the deck above us.”

    “That’s the point. If we’re willing to do that to ourselves, just imagine what we’ll do to them!”

  8. Hal 10000 says:

    You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out, you put your left in and you stick it in your mouth.

  9. He who must not be named says:

    Yes sir, if an unknown ship approaches us we open this hatch and fire two shotgun blasts into the air.

  10. He who must not be named says:

    Yes sir, it is a pretty big f*cking ship.

  11. He who must not be named says:

    Shall we dance?

  12. al-Ameda says:

    I believe we “buried” Vince Foster over there, sir.

  13. Pinky says:

    “What part of ‘underwater submarine door’ doesn’t make sense to you? They can’t fly in here, you moron!”

  14. OzarkHillbilly says:

    “Yes Sir, it was somewhere in this area here that we think they buried Obamacare.”

  15. “Sir, where would you like us to hang the ‘Syrian Mission Accomplished’ sign?”

  16. jd says:

    We’re going to honeymoon on a cruise?! That’s FABulous!

  17. Prone to exaggeration, nobody really believed the Veep’s yarn that he was rescued at sea with a Bengal tiger, but The Life of Bi was a smashing box office hit.

  18. JKB says:

    And the divan will be right over there

  19. Jc says:

    “Yes, sir. We have captured the speaker, here comes the Seal team now, the budget and debt ceiling negotiations can begin, please follow me to the negotiation chamber.”

  20. markm says:

    Uncle Joe: “….ok….now IF these cranes can lift Hillary and IF her and her cankles will fit out this door……”

  21. Tillman says:

    “Alright, I’ve seen enough. Let’s surface.”
    “…we’re not a submarine, sir.”
    “Nonsense, look out the window, everything’s the same color!”
    “That’s–it’s just–but it’s–”
    “Damn it, son, I won’t tell you twice! BLOW MAIN BALLAST!”

  22. JWH says:

    “Mr. Vice President, there’s a lot we can do.”
    “In the Navy?”
    “Yes, you can sail the seven seas.”
    “In the Navy?”
    “*Sigh* Yes, you can put your mind at ease.”
    “In the Navy?”
    “*Sigh* No, Mr. Vice President, that joke NEVER gets old.” (muttering): “Hillary better get the nomination. I can’t take another four years of that joke.”

  23. Moosebreath says:

    That’s quite a picture window you’ve got there, Captain.

  24. rodney dill says:

    @Tillman: “No Sir… That’s not what ‘EMERGENCY BLOW’ really means.”

  25. JWH says:

    Biden wants you!! Biden wants you!! Biden wants you as a new recruit!!!
