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

Last week, we asked our readers to offer suggestions for an appropriate caption for the above photo of presidential candidate Herman Cain in the midst of a rather epic brain-fart for this week's New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

If you missed Cain's cranial flatulence, click here to watch the video.

We had nearly 30 responses in the comment section of the post, which you can see by clicking here.

We've narrowed it down to five finalists, but only one can win the grand prize: a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building, a firm handshake, and a lukewarm glass of Phoenix's municipal tap water.

The finalists are as follows:

A) Thetravelingman2356 with: "Tell me about the elephants ,George."

B) Seedy Ward with: "Lib-ya...well, um, ah, Barack Hussein Obama hasn't found their weapons of mass destruction yet. Has he now? So, ah, I, can't really approve of how Barack Hussein Obama has handled this Lib-ya, um, situation. Did get Saddam out of there, though, so he gets some credit for that much."

C) Bnbk with: "Lord, I beg of you, please don't let me come off looking as stupid as Rick Perry."

D) Bnbk with: "Umm, lets see. Libya? Oh yeah, that's the country that's next to Vulvania,right?"

E) Mbryan with: "Oh, crap. Why did I have to flirt with my foreign policy briefer instead of listening to her?"
