Winner of Best Reader Caption For Michele Bachmann Kissing Joe Arpaio's A$$: Shadeaux14

Congratulations to the New Times reader who goes by the handle Shadeaux14, 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 photo of Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann kissing Sheriff Joe Arpaio's ass in an attempt to earn his political tip of the cap for her presidential campaign.

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

See all the entries here.

Shadeaux14 stole the show with the following:

"Damn it Joe, try not to go outside of the lines or mommy will have to take your crayons away."

Thanks to everyone who played, and congrats again to Shadeaux14 -- 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.
