5/19/2004: Iraqi police graduate

Thanks to xoxoxoBruce for passing along this one along. It's presented without bias. The grimacing guy is a British police instructor, and the guy showing his affection is one of about 950 newly minted Iraqi police graduates who has just graduated from the makeshift police academy.

He wants that cool pretzel hat. So do I.

There is something very eeire about the calm expression on the Iraqi's face in contrast to the look of discomfort on the british instructors face.

I suggest we have a caption contest for this one. Pretend Undertoad hadn't explained the picture. Here's my entry:

"Hey lover... I posted our video on the internet."

smile, or the knife goes in!

warch  Wednesday May 19 05:35 PM

These pretzels are making me thirsty.

xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday May 19 08:32 PM

You've got nice teeth, for an Englishman.

YellowBolt  Wednesday May 19 08:39 PM

How about we all take a nice trip... TO THE BATHROOM! *dun dun dun...*

richlevy  Wednesday May 19 10:25 PM

Ok, can someone from England please explain the pretzel insignia.

xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday May 19 10:52 PM

That's not a pretzel, thats a noose for male genitals.

Happy Monkey  Wednesday May 19 11:10 PM

I suspect it's an overhand knot, not a pretzel. Boy Scouts use a square knot. I guess British military just aren't up to that level yet.

I'll be worried when I see someone with a bowline insignia.

Yes, and American Boy Scouts love to wear those knot decorations and there are so many to choose from. Prior to WWII, American Scout leaders wore decortations much like military ribbons, but with returning soldiers becoming volunteers it was decided that it could get too confusing.

"Don't tell me what you did to me in that prison didn't mean anything to you?"

Happy Monkey  Thursday May 20 02:24 PM

Man, seven years in Scouts, and I only got one of those knots.

xoxoxoBruce  Thursday May 20 07:52 PM

Yeah, but you can honestly say you weren't Knaughty.

YellowBolt  Thursday May 20 08:38 PM

Can anyone say... *WAH WAAAAH!*

Caption: "But your wife liked it!"

Probably telling him he's joining the other 100 suckers that abandoned their posts in najaff.

The Iraqi is saying .. "Remember that part of the course you put us through, where we had to act the part of the difficult prisoner?? .....

Well .. THIS, is to level the score!! .. ARSEHOLE!!! .... UURRRGHHH!

Beestie  Wednesday Jun 2 12:49 AM

"Wow, you Brits really are tightasses"

"...what do you mean my fist is too big?"

"Your cheek tastes so much better than Uday's butt."

lookout123  Wednesday Jun 2 06:44 PM

"wait, if both of your hand are on my shoulders, then what the hell is poking me in..."

bjlhct  Wednesday Jun 2 11:55 PM

That's my commander there...I can tell - he knows I cheated on him!

OK, that's really enough, folks. Let's move towards something with more robots, pizzas, and Rube Goldberg machines.
