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).
