Quote of the Year . . . Thus Far

This morning I overheard a senior Naval officer (yes, there are a few thousand Navy personnel serving in Iraq) tell someone the following via cellphone:
"I've got one nostril above water and people are still making waves!"

This goes right up there with "[Soldier X] is like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest!" as my favorite military expressions of all time.
