Joe Arpaio's Elvis-Themed Panty Party in You Write the Caption

Above, you can see the photo we snapped of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at his Elvis-themed panty party at Tent City earlier this week.

Arpaio sang a duet with an Elvis impersonator as female jail inmates threw pink panties at him. Then there was cake...and expired ice cream.

We witnessed this -- yes, it really happened.

You Write the Caption's pretty self-explanatory. Here's how you play: we show you a picture, like the one above of America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff."

You -- in the comment section of this post -- then write what you think would be an appropriate caption for the photo.

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, a firm handshake, and a lukewarm glass of municipal Phoenix tap water.

Do your worst, New Times readers -- and let's try to keep things somewhat classy (in other words, let's keep the death threats to a minimum).

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
