Joe Arpaio Gets a Cake From Randy Parraz in You Write the Caption
Your caption here.
Archaeologists have discovered Maricopa County Joe Arpaio's birthday was yesterday, and in typical Arpaio fashion, he shouted it from the rooftops.
For Arpaio's birthday, Citizens for a Better Arizona's Randy Parraz brought the sheriff a cake. The purpose, according to one of Parraz's e-mail blasts, was to put 80 candles on the thing, each one representing a million bucks in legal payments the county could reach thanks to Arpaio. (According to Paul Rubin's latest cover story, that number is currently about $50 million.)
Of course, Arpaio posed for the cake, earning him a spot in this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.
