Badass Police Jeep and Gun-Squatting Deputy in You Write the Caption

Assault rifles, a cool-looking off-road machine and a bored deputy who evidently has too much time on his hands -- what's not to love about today's shot for "You Write the Caption?"

The photo features a "Deputy Templeton," who apparently submitted his picture for humor's sake to a fitness Web site some months ago.

Templeton's caption on the site was an inside joke for fellow weightlifting types, but you can do better.

BTW, the badass cop-Jeep, as we learned through comments on the CrossFit site, was built by Tempe's Hunter Offroad.

Here are the rules of our game: In the comment section of this post, write what you think would be an appropriate caption for this photo.

On Monday, we'll announce the top five reader captions and put them to a vote. The winner will receive a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building, a firm handshake, and a lukewarm glass of municipal Phoenix tap water.

Do your worst, New Times readers -- and let's try to keep things somewhat classy (in other words, let's keep the death threats to a minimum).
