Morning Poll: Best Reader Caption for Photo of Joe Arpaio Eating Mexican Pizza

Last week, we asked our readers to offer suggestions for a caption for the above photo we snapped of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio eating a Mexican pizza from Taco Bell for this week's New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

Once again, you didn't disappoint.

We had nearly 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, a firm handshake, and a lukewarm glass of Phoenix's municipal tap water.

The finalists are as follows:

A) Eleanor with "Are there really Mexicans in this pizza?"

B) Jason with "Next immigration raid: Taco Bell!"

C) 1001 with "Leave it to the illegals to put beans on a Pizza!"

D) 1001 with "And the New Times says I wasted $100 million on stupid stuff. Once again they can eat my pink shorts because I just spent 20k in labor and 5 dollars at Taco Bell to put on this crappy PR stunt!"

E) wherewasi with "This looks like Drop House Cheese.  I will have to immediately begin to plan my next media stu... er, I mean "Crime Supression Sweep."
