Best Reader Caption For Photo of Jan Brewer Humiliating Arizona?

Last week, we asked our readers to come up with their own captions for the above photo of Governor Jan Brewer humiliating Arizona (yet again) for this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

Brewer, as you know, stuck her finger in the face of President Barack Obama as the two argued on the tarmac at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa on Wednesday.

Get all the details here.

We had 120 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) Yogurt4Lunch with "Don't you dare tell me I've had too much to drink. My daddy died fighting the Nazi's at Huntington Beach."

B) OnlyinArizona with "Listen up brown boy - you aint takin ONE MORE STEP into my State til I see dem der birth papers of yours. Me 'n' uncle joe run this place, and we say what goes down here....."

C) BaddestNiggerInPhoenix with the following:

Brewer: "I want you to join me for lunch and a border tour. Me and you, my treat!"

Obama: "Too dangerous Jan, this is Arizona after all... You guys still have laws against interracial commingling, right?"


Obama (in passing): "Yep, you'll never trick me into bustin' up the chifforobe..."

D) Newwest with "Scorpions for Breakfast? Actually, I had four martinis for lunch."

E) david saint with "(Ding ding ding) LETS GET READY TO RUBMBLE!! In that corner, we have a Harvard graduate, a former US Senator, and current president, MR Obama! (cheers). Notable wins include Killing Osama, several other Terrorists, and is the man who brought back the auto industry.

"Our challenger: shes a fiesty one with scorpions all around her (Chuck Coughlin), has no college education, got away with a DUI in the state with the harshest DUI laws, slurs her words all the time, and cant complete a coherent sentence..ladies and gentleman, Jan 'We Have Did' Brewer! (crickets)."
