Last week, we asked our readers to offer suggestions for a caption for the actual mugshot taken by a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office detention officer of assault suspect Ramon Corrales for this week's New Times' You Write the Caption contest..
As you can see, he's apparently resorted to our current favorite way to stick it to the man: not even showing law enforcement the common courtesy of being conscious when they try to take your booking photo.
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) Andrew Thom Ass with "Maybe if I pretend to go to sleep, Joel Fox will stop making passes at me..."
B) Maybe368 with "I'm dreaming of a white jailer, one who will clothe me all in pink...where the racists listen, and their weapons glisten to stop my batos in their tracks...(sung to the tune of "White Christmas")
C) Samuel J with "I'm too sexy for this jail."
D) Andrew Thom Ass with "MY EYES!!! MY EYES!!! For the love of all that is sacred and holy, please put your robe back on Ms. Aubuchon!"
E) wherewasi with "...and they BETTER NOT wake me up until that friggin coloring contest is OVER!"
