Having used this video as part of the sales pitch to the DOD. Zapata signed off a no refund policy. However the Army was not impressed when trying them in Afghanistan.

Some real goodies so far. I'll judge tomorrow, late afternoon/ early evening, so we can get a new one in for the weekend.

"What is the military value of the item on the right?"

- "We place them 2m apart all around the coast and they stop invading ships."

- "And what do the man and the water add?"

- "That's a very good question."

"What's the point of all that water coming out of each item?"

- "Oh, that's not water, that's fibreglass, but it looks realistic, don't you think?"

Tragedy struck during the attempt at the world water speed record for powered ski, when shortly after the commencement of the first flying kilometre, "Sharkey" McDoodle discovered he only had 20m of hose.

Judging time. Some great entries, but we must have a winner.

in 3rd, Treadigraph with "Legs wider apart Kev, or I'll never get through there..."

In 2nd, Wensleydale with "The first rule of War Fighting. Know your Enema."

And 1st with a new slant on the parachutist/gasfitter joke

Surplus with, "'Oi, do you know anything about plumbing?' "No, do you know anything about fire hydrants?"

A worthy winner! And I'd forgotten the parachutist/gasfitter joke...

After being caught boffing the CO's missus, Bloggs' excuse was that he was attempting to resuscitate her with artificial insemination...

After 22 hours without writing a caption, Treadigraph and Kiltrash were starting to go stir-crazy...
