Michele Bachmann Kissing Joe Arpaio's A$$ in You Write the Caption

In honor of Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's recent trip to the Valley -- to plant her lips on the ass of America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" -- we decided to go with a photo Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's ghost "tweeters" posted on his Twitter page for this week's You Write the Caption contest.

Arpaio, it seems, is signing a copy of his book for the presidential candidate -- and no trip to Arizona's complete without a fresh pair of pink undies. 

You Write the Caption's pretty self-explanatory. Here's how you play: we show you a picture, like the one above of Bachmann begging like a dog for Arpaio to endorse her candidacy.

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).
