Time to judge I reckon -

Winner - Kiltrash for not only the highest number of entries but this one tickled me
...and for the record it was 6 mess pianos, 5 sets off dress kit, 4 dozen SA81 rifles, 3 pairs of stockings, Sargents for the use off, 2 golf bags with full sets of clubs, and 1 (one) mobile phone for Ms Vardeys assistant that was lost overboard. .
combining current topics of Atlantic Conveyor sinking with more kit on board than it could possibly carry (#Falklands 40) and the Wagatha Christie libel fiasco

Second place Tredigraph for
The new Penzance - St Mary's passenger service gets off the... er... well, it's quicker than The Scillonian.
Third fdr for
The SOP reduced the risk of being shot down but did increase the chance of being torpedoed...

I've been kept waiting while Kiltrash finishes a game of golf with Goldfinger? Eliminate them both, Mr Bond, with extreme prejudice. But capture Oddjob and bring him here, I may have a task for him...

Well Bond, you managed to deal with SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion) - your next task is to eliminate the CLOWNS (Cronies, Liars, Opportunists, Wasters and Numpties Society) - we think they are holed up in Downing St.....

One is slightly puzzled Mr Bond... one always thought you looked rather like Sean Connery...

Bond, if this is a stunt to get a cap Com picture, one will have you in the tower before you can say "Shaken, not Stirred"!
