Russell Pearce and a Baby in You Write the Caption

Ousted state Senate President Russell Pearce actually is trying to get elected again, this time in Senate District 25, where he'll have to contend with fellow GOP hopeful Bob Worsley.

We're obviously looking at a picture of Pearce with a baby -- taken from an invitation to join him for an "ice cream social" -- which is more than enough to earn Pearce an appearance in this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

The rules for You Write the Caption are simple: We provide the picture (above), and you provide the caption to that photo in the comments below.

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/or a high-five.

Do your best (or worst), New Times readers.
