Just As I Thought

Only in DC

From this morning’s Style Invitational, pick up lines that you’d only hear in Washington:

Third Runner-Up: Excuse me, ma’am, but the gentleman at that table has sent you a FYH 2005 energy and water appropriations bill rider for a $52.3 million solid-waste treatment plant upgrade in your home congressional district, with his compliments. (Mark Briscoe, Arlington)

First Runner-Up: Babe, why are you wasting your time with an assistant to a deputy secretary, when you could be with ME, a deputy assistant undersecretary? (Dan Steinberg, Falls Church)

How about if we get away somewhere and completely deregulate ourselves? (Brendan Beary, Great Mills)

Your nomination for secretary of the posterior has been confirmed. (Luke S. Wassum, Washington)

My intern doesn’t understand me. (Art Grinath, Takoma Park)

What a coincidence — you have a cute bellybutton, and I work at the Naval Observatory. (Stephen Dudzik, Olney)

If I told you your body reminded me of IRS form 10W-817a, would you withhold it against me? (Art Grinath, Takoma Park)

Dick Cheney gave me a key to his secret undisclosed location, and it has a waterbed. (Stephen Dudzik, Olney)
