Caption competition: Ian Paisley

A first time for Slugger, but considering the huge anti climax of recent days, we thought readers prefer to kick off their shoes and relax instead of reading yet another speculative piece of what might have gone wrong. So give us a strapline for the Doc, clearly returned to his oratorical best!

  • peteb

    *Shrugs* Well, if you insist, Mick, although I don’t necessarily agree that the pieces have been all that speculative.. BTW we demand to know if we can post jpegs too? 😉

    Anyway, my suggested caption –

    “What do ye mean, ‘Photograph this?!!”

  • George

    I said INVENTORY!

    Paisley misquoted in the Newsletter today:

    “Nothing on decommissioning was agreed with them. Nothing, not only the photographs but nothing was discussed or settled about the independent witnesses and the infantry and all the things that we were interested in – dates and times and when it would finish – and whether it will be two reports or one report. Nothing.”

    Did he say smack cloth and hash?
