Congratulations to the New Times reader who goes by the handle InandOutinMaricopaCounty, you are the proud winner of this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.
Friday, we asked readers to provide what they think would be an appropriate caption for the above photo of presidential candidate Herman Cain and America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff," Joe Arpaio.
We picked the five best reader captions and put it to a vote.

InandOutinMaricopaCounty stole the show with the following:
"Before I begin I need your attention. The gentleman standing behind me was found wandering the streets and appears confused. He's about 80,can't remember his name or where he lives, and has a tattoo that reads "SB1070" on his shaft. If you can identify him, please call the Phoenix Police Department. Now...enough about him, let's talk about me."
Thanks to everyone who played, and congrats again to InandOutinMaricopaCounty -- to retrieve your grand prize of a firm handshake and a glass of lukewarm Phoenix municipal tap water, come to the New Times Building at 1201 East Jefferson Street in Phoenix. Go to the front desk and ask for James King any time after 1 p.m.
