Caption Contest

Over at Ultraquiet No More, we're still hosting our version of the Daily News Roundup while TheSubReport is on vacation, and Alex put up a caption contest. Those are always fun, so I'll try one here, from this picture from USS Norfolk (SSN 714), currently in Bahrain:

I think the way this works is that you put your attempt at writing the funniest caption for this picture in the comments, and someone decides which entry is the funniest (I'll probably try to convince Ninme to be a guest judge, and come up with a winner early next week). The person whose caption is selected gets the adulation of an adoring public.

Twenty-Five years after being conceived in a test tube Lt Lou Brown finds the impulse to climb into a Torpedo tube difficult to defend against.

Lt Brown’s mother was recently quoted as saying “Ever since he was a boy Lou always loved the water. Shoot, I never knew my little slug would turn out to be such a hot runner”.

Its just a slight phase shift to the enteric repulse alignment. It was probably caused by a magnetic vortex reaction to the flatulance deflation of the last SEAL to transit this tube.

Still in training, the new machiny mate in torpedo division tries to fit the hexy'thingy into the square hole and is dumbfounded when it does not work like his toy at home.
Later that night they put a green book entry in for A'division assistance.

"One if by Land, two if by sea." Any sub TM would understand that since he is working on the torpedo tube land. TMC(SW)(ret)

I've got a submission from over on by side, in case he doesn't get it in before the polls close:

US Navy checks that Michael Moore won't be able to sneak on board through a torpedo tube while filming his forthcoming "Rummy and Me".

When the Commodore said "people are our most important weapon in the War On Terror" I didn't think he meant this! Did he?

Additionally, Death Wrapp falls short of something actually essential and also vital to your Diablo 3 Gold: the ability to notice conditions and also boons presently in your personality whilst in Ds lite. Irrrve never observed this kind of until I started to experience close to with some other boons or situations of course simply by heating Cheap GW2 Gold time or even coming into Dying Wrapp if you decide on particular characteristics.
