Former Congressman Matt Salmon wants to be a congressman again. He's currently running in District 6 -- and apparently is in the process of transforming from lobbyist to cowboy to appeal to the District's far-right-wing electorate as he fights his way through a GOP primary with former Arizona House Speaker Kirk Adams.

In honor of the former congressman's (ahem) rebirth, we've chosen the above photo for this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

See our coverage of Salmon's switcheroos here.

Here's how you play You Write the Caption: We show you a picture (above) and you -- in the comment section of this post -- write what you think would be an appropriate caption.

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 a lukewarm glass of Phoenix municipal tap water.

Do your worst, New Times readers

Nothing says "Cowboy" like a shiny white metal cylinder tipped with a blue light containing an vapor cartridge that tastes like a vanilla latte when you inhale it.  Coming soon ... Starbuck's Tofu Jerky.
