Beltway Pickup Lines

The Washington Post has a column in its Style section, The Style Invitational, to which readers submit items for its weekly contests. The column for Week 519 [free, mini registration required] asked readers for pickup lines which you'd only hear in D.C. The top winners (follow the link for the Honorable Mentions):

Third Runner-Up: Excuse me, ma'am, but the gentleman at that table has sent you a FYH 2005 energy and water appropriations bill rider for a $52.3 million solid-waste treatment plant upgrade in your home congressional district, with his compliments. (Mark Briscoe, Arlington)

Second Runner-Up: I'm guessing you work for Fannie Mae, because your fanny may be the best I've ever seen. (Chris Doyle, Forsyth, Mo.)

First Runner-Up: Babe, why are you wasting your time with an assistant to a deputy secretary, when you could be with ME, a deputy assistant undersecretary? (Dan Steinberg, Falls Church)

And the winner of the the Lyndon Johnson commemorative plaque:

Your beauty renders me as powerless as Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton. (Cindy Burnham, Alexandria)
