BERLIN (Reuters) -- A German frogman who lives on a swampy island and wears a combat-style diving suit and black face paint has been arrested for suspected arson attacks on two yachts.

OK, I get it folks; a lot of you speak German! But, since I don't, you can see how far that got you. Here are my picks in English:

Yeah, but he died in captivity while waiting for NYCM to be updated ;) (MooseSpeak@netscape.net) Heh-heh-heh...NO POINTS FOR YOU!!!!

Yacht make frogman ANGRY!!! (bblack17@hotmail.com)

When the government of France learned that the yachts were owned by French citizens they immediately surrendered. (Truckerex@insightbb.com)

The monkeyman of Delhi refused an interview, but released a statement saying he hoped this arrest would not turn people against all animal-men. (changetion@yahoo.com)

His name? Gilligan. (robertellingsworth@yahoo.com)

He was a troubled tadpole. And of course his father was always picked on for his peculiar bed habits. (robtone247@yahoo.com)

I didn't know 'Jonny Quest' was even ON in Germany. (MooseSpeak@netscape.com) "Jonny Quest"? Once again, Moose, I admit that your kung fu is good.

When they removed the black paint it actually turned out to be an old Japanese WWII soldier who thought he was protecting his island. (Cantw82paint@Aol.com)

" " (Airfarcewon@aol.com) By-far AFW's most profound post to date. Bravissimo!!

An enraged Al Franken insisted that he was NOT German and only LOOKED like a frog, and that the yachts deserved it because they were owned by "big fat idiots!" (HerzogVon@aol.com) .... or Republicans

Apparently the attacks would have been much more successful at night. (william.fishburne@verizon.net)

Police explained that although they are not certain he was the person responsible for the arson attacks, they felt in the interest of tourism, he should be arrested for something. (pjb1671@netscape.net)

Froggy went a snorklin' and he did dive Torch and igniter by his side. Involved in covert Neo-Nazi plots, He set aflame two luxury yachts. No trial to face, as not one German juror would dare betray him who serves The Fuhrer! (HerzogVon@aol.com) Sung to the tune of "Froggy Went a Courtin" -- somehow.

To recap: Being a frogman is okay, but burning yachts is where we draw the line. (changetion@yahoo.com)

And the winner is...

Police had to release the man after the witnesses failed to pick him out of a lineup. (agapeagent@yahoo.com)
