Shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad...

Alabama legislators spent hours Tuesday night debating whether to appropriate more money to tout the state's rabbit and shrimp industries and, if so, how much more. The winning figure was $25,000 apiece, but the compromise didn't come without some amusing, enlightening one-liners.

Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-Greensboro, who wore a "Got shrimp" sign: "This is not pork. It's shrimp."

Sen. Quinton Ross, D-Montgomery, who wore a "Got rabbit" sign: I'm pretty sure the sign speaks for itself.

Rep. John Knight, D-Montgomery, who went with the classic no-sign look: "I like shrimp better than I like rabbit."
