I should have used this line for my submission. A well-deserved +1 goes to the submitter.

I'm 6'4" and I normally eat punks like him for breakfast, but when I see his wife I sink into the Slough of Despond.

How could he belittle them like that?

He should have just stood on a box.

For a head of state he has wonderful calf muscles. *feeding his ego in an ironic turn of events*

I hear he routinely shoots 3-4 hole in ones every golf outing.

Meh, I see nothing wrong with this. It's more aesthetically pleasing if a speaker isn't surrounded by people towering over him/her. That's the reason they have raised podiums.

Sounds like a classic case of this guy having a Sarkozy complex.

What workers shorter than Sarkozy might look like.


OH! Wait! None of the pictures has him with shorter people. Way to go UPI...way to go.

What`s the big deal with his ol lady? I`d rather give ol Sarah Palin a ride before her.

Whoa!

Did anyone see the bit about John Glenn getting punched? Has that been greenlit yet?

/Preferably with a headline making reference to Buzz Aldrin and Bart Sibrel?

tu crois que google translate a la phrase "coup de tonnere?" Celle-la c'est que la parole d'une maitre de la langue francaise. And I dont know how to do the accents on my computer cut me some slack.

I am surprised he would surrender to such tactics.

Ha ha ha! Oh gosh that's funny! That's really funny! Do you write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. He's French and you said he surrenders. You know, I've never heard anyone make that joke before. Hmm. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that before. Because that's what people say, right? Isn't it? The French surrender. And, and yet you've taken that and used it out of context to insult them in this new situation. God what a clever, smart Farker you must be, to come up with a joke like that all by yourself. That's so fresh too. Any, any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me too as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. God you're so funny!

They got little baby legs that stand so low you got to pick em up just to say hello. They got little cars that go beep, beep, beep, they got little voices goin' peep, peep, peep.


They got grubby little fingers and dirty little minds, they're gonna get you every time. Well, I don't want no short people 'round here.

I was also very confused as to why those French soldiers are holding an Indian flag for Bastille Day celebrations. Did they run out of French flags?
