In honor of the sexual-harassment allegations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, we've opted to go with the above photo we snapped of Cain puckerin' up to Joe Arpaio's boo-tay for this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.
Cain, as you may know, is the current frontrunner in the GOP presidential primary. He's also accused of sexually harassing three women. Regardless of whether the allegations are true, we have faith that Cain's current dilemma can inspire some fantastic captions from our faithful readers.
Here's how you play You Write the Caption: We show you a picture (above) and you -- in the comment section of this post -- write what you think would be an appropriate caption.
On Monday, we'll announce the top-five reader captions and put them to a vote. The winner will receive a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building for a firm handshake and a lukewarm glass of Phoenix municipal tap water.
Do your worst, New Times readers -- and let's try to keep things somewhat polite. In other words, keep the death threats/racist comments to a minimum (this includes "hey, where are the white women at?").

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
