"I'd like to introduce you to our newest drug sniffing dog. Now, we know that dogs are color blind, so we've also taught this one to bark at anything that smells like taco seasoning or homemade tortillas."

By all appearances, that is a photo of the Sheriff of Maricopa County in a bowling alley, wearing some sort of floral-print shirt, and standing next to a guy in a dog suit.

Fresh off giving testimony in the racial-profiling trial against him and his office, Arpaio was doing whatever it is that's pictured above, apparently some sort of event that benefits the MCSO Animal Safe Haven -- which qualifies him for another appearance in New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his birther brigade -- led by chief "investigator" Mike Zullo -- held another press conference this week to announce their new "evidence" that President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.

Not surprisingly, the Cold Case Posse's "evidence" was debunked months before Arpaio and Zullo presented it as fact.

Given Zullo's second failed attempt at coming up with anything credible or original -- and since he's the subject of a new complaint filed with the Internal Revenue Service -- he's earned a spot in this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

Joe Arpaio Gets a Cake From Randy Parraz in You Write the Caption

Your caption here.
Archaeologists have discovered Maricopa County Joe Arpaio's birthday was yesterday, and in typical Arpaio fashion, he shouted it from the rooftops.

For Arpaio's birthday, Citizens for a Better Arizona's Randy Parraz brought the sheriff a cake. The purpose, according to one of Parraz's e-mail blasts, was to put 80 candles on the thing, each one representing a million bucks in legal payments the county could reach thanks to Arpaio. (According to Paul Rubin's latest cover story, that number is currently about $50 million.)

Of course, Arpaio posed for the cake, earning him a spot in this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

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.
