US forces will hold two-week-long military exercises in the Philippines despite a controversy over four US Marines accused of raping a Filipina after the last such exercises, officials said(AFP/File/Romeo Gacad)

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

In keeping with the "Kinder, Gentler" military of the 21st Century, US troops begin teaching the basics of ballet. The goal is to put on an all-Iraqi production of Swan Lake by June.

I've spent too much time at that particular training excercise to submit an entry that is family friendly.

When you put on a Strategic Terrorist Defence (STD) shield, the terrorists just pop like little soap bubbles when they attack! Isn't that neat? Yeah!

The only thing more satisfying than winning a caption contest is to have someone gloat over beating your captions.

Just remember ladies it is width, not length that matters and we are like this.

Hey, second place. Thanks, Will!

Simon sez, make an 'O' with your arms. Too slow Barnes, go stand with the insurgents.

"No, I'm telling you, the French surrender goes more like this."

Posted by: Gaijin Biker at January 12, 2006 08:48 PM

U.S. troops must rehearse the new "surrender drill" on a weekly basis, just in case the Democrats ever take over the reins of power again!

Posted by: Mr. Right at January 12, 2006 09:50 PM

And as a last resort, there's always the "French Manuever."

Posted by: charles austin at January 14, 2006 01:29 PM

Now y'all follow Leutenant Jenkins and do a hundred head pats. Next week when we start the tummy rubs, the action will be slightly different. Do not get confused! The tricky part will be in combining the two maneuvers.

Yeah, it's lame, but after Rodney Dill and that stupid song that I can't get out of my head, I can't hope to beat that.

Marines demonstrate practical application of Semper Pi

, useful for determining the circumference and opening area of a fox hole.

Posted by: Rodney Dill at January 17, 2006 01:19 PM

Of course 4/3 Semper-Pi R^3 will yield the amount of crap in Murtha's head given R being half the distance between his ears.
