Best Reader Caption for Joe Arpaio and His Cake: knotanes

Congratulations to the New Times reader known as knotanes, you've won this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

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.

We picked the five best captions, and put those up for a popular vote.

knotanes beat out the rest of the field with the following:

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.
