Congratulations to the New Times reader who goes by the handle Joe Mamma, you are the proud winner of this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

On Friday, we asked readers to provide what they think would be an appropriate caption for the above cover of Globe, and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "investigation" into whether President Barack Obama's eligible to be president.

We picked the five best reader captions and put it to a vote.

Joe Mamma stole the show with the following:

With Sheriff Joe closing in on the president's true identity Obama says "you know lets hide my Kenyan birth certificate in all of those sex crimes files in Arizona, Joe will never find them there."

Thanks to everyone who played, and congrats again to Joe Mamma  -- to retrieve your grand prize of a firm handshake and a glass of lukewarm Phoenix municipal tap water, come to the New Times Building at 1201 East Jefferson Street in Phoenix. Go to the front desk and ask for James King any time after 1 p.m.
