Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Last week, we asked our readers to offer suggestions for a caption for the above photo we snapped of Governor Jan Brewer for this week's New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

Once again, you didn't disappoint.

We had more than 50 responses in the comment section of the post, which you can see by clicking here.

We've narrowed it down to five finalists, but only one can win the grand prize: a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building, and a lukewarm glass of Phoenix's municipal tap water.

The finalists are as follows:

A) Pitboss with "So, in conclusion, my main takeaway from this presentation is that
anybody--and I do mean ANYBODY--can become the Governor of a U.S. state.
You just have to know how to use the fear card. Any questions?"

B) FormerRepublican with "Thank you for coming.  My name is Jan Brewer and I'm an alcoholic" (we got our hands on the arrest report. Read about Jan's wild ride here).

C) Steve Tracy with "I sure as hell done did create new jobs and fix the budget...I got me a job that pays enough to fix my budget, and that's a start, ain't it?"

D) Maybe368 with "ask not what your country have did for you, but what you have did for your country,"

E) James King with "I couldn't be more disappointed in Tommy Collins than I am right now."

Cast your vote for the winner of New Times' You Write the Caption contest below.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
