Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

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).

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
