Best Reader Caption for Joe Arpaio and His Cake?

On Friday, we asked readers to write the caption for the above photo of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, with his cake from Citizens for a Better Arizona's Randy Parraz.

After sifting through all the responses -- as usual, some of them more politically correct than others -- we've narrowed it down to five finalists.

Only one person will win the pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building, along with a firm handshake and/or high-five, and deciding that winner is up to you.

Sheriff Joe served cake iced with pureed green baloney by inmates. "The putrefied meat is still no match for the fetid rot of my soul which I belch up daily," says Apraio. "But, nice try," he added.


"Is this cake? I am appointing a team to investigate the authenticity of this cake, it will only cost 576,873.00 usd, paid by the Arizona tax payers"

C) Dave

Hmm, I wonder how many Mexicans I can fit in that truck?

D) Gerry_C

If I get diabetes, I am going to arrest Randy for attempted murder. If only Andy were still County Attorney; he would file charges.

E) Markwilliam Gordon
