Joe Arpaio and a Guy in a Dog Suit in You Write the Caption

By all appearances, that is a photo of the Sheriff of Maricopa County in a bowling alley, wearing some sort of floral-print shirt, and standing next to a guy in a dog suit.

Fresh off giving testimony in the racial-profiling trial against him and his office, Arpaio was doing whatever it is that's pictured above, apparently some sort of event that benefits the MCSO Animal Safe Haven -- which qualifies him for another appearance in New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

The rules for You Write the Caption are simple: We provide the picture (above), and you provide the caption to that photo in the comments below.

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/or a high-five.

Do your best (or worst), New Times readers.
