1. Dino Rossi, broken financially after his Chris-crossed race for governor, dressed up as a hobo spider and showed up at the mansion he should be living in, mumbling something about "oh, the evil web you weaved..." -- John Austin.

2. A Libertarian's Nightmare: One politician with eight arms to reach into your pockets and another one pigging out at the public trough -- Thom George.

3. Everything was just ducky until little Timmy kept insisting the First Gentleman was "a bunny! a stupid stupid PINK bunny!" which led to Mr. Gregoire motioning one of the WSP Trooper bodyguards to come over and pistolwhip little Timmy and zip tie his hands behind his back on the front lawn of the Executive Mansion -- RSPA.
