Congratulations to the New Times reader who goes by the handle Mikey1969, you are the proud winner of this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

On Friday, we asked readers to provide what they think would be an appropriate caption for the above photo. We picked the five best reader captions and put it to a vote.

See all the entries here.

Mikey1969 stole the show with the following:

"Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice: The sound of crickets chirping filled the air as everyone on the Arpaio investigation(s) took the day off... As for the inmates, after the 15 minute panty party, they went back to stewing rats to supplement the meager rations handed out by the glorious Arpaio. As for Joe, he was rushed to the hospital when he threw out his rotator cuff (yet again) patting himself on the back. Again..."

Thanks to everyone who played, and congrats again to Maybe368 -- 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.
