1. When the Japanese Foreign Minister introduced himself as “Taro Aso” the Bulgarians, thinking he was testing his English out on them, stripped off their clothes and replied, “Yes, we also have short ones, and fat ones, and skinny ones….” — Family Phil.

2. Former Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, center, competes in a leg contest after coming out of the closet and getting a sex change following his brief post-political career as a professional wrestler. “I’m able to let go of a lot of my bloodlust this way,” he said — Brent Andrews.

3. The Bulgarian wrestlers got their panties in a knot when the foreign minister referred to his country’s wrestlers as “Sofia’s Choice” — John Austin.
