SEATTLE -- Some people in the other Washington think Rep. Rick Larsen's a funny guy.
The Seattle Times reports that Larsen placed second this week in the the 17th annual Washington's Funniest Celebrity Contest.
The five-term Washington Democrat impressed the judges with his political routine at the competition. He joked that the worst job in the world is to be third in command at Al Qaeda, because "we have killed that guy at least seven times."
Larsen was edged out for the win by White House speech writer Jon Lovett, who riffed on how the new airport screening procedures turned Virgin Airlines into "Technically Still a Virgin Airlines."
Larsen improved on his third-place performance from last year.
