Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's having a rough week -- Department of Justice investigations, botched sex-crime investigations, etc.
To celebrate Arpaio's comeuppance, we're goin' with the above photo of America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" cozyin' up to his PR puppy for this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.
If you missed our post on the sheriff shamelessly using a puppy to deflect questions about botched sex-crime investigations, click here.
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, as always, let's keep the death threats to a minimum.
