Your caption here.

Boston Globe / Pool Photo / Vincenzo Pinto

From the front page of today's Boston Globe. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words — but let's not just settle for the pricelessness of this image. Let's have a contest! Write the perfect caption.

Update 6.7.04: Such great responses! I have appointed a jury to select the top three captions tomorrow — so if you would like to be considered for fame and glory, please add your caption by 9:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday. Multiple entries welcome. Outdo yourselves.

Your holiness, I'm having some problems with the husband. Just LOOK at him!

Your holiness, do you know who this gentleman is standing next to me? He says he's the President of the US and the leader of the free world, but he appears to be somewhat incoherent and does not speak English well at all. Perhaps you can say a special prayer for him.

My contest entry: "What, me meet the pope?"

My wife's entry: "Where's the bathroom?"

(She wants to know what the prize is for the contest winner. I, of course, maintain an aloof indifference to such mundane matters. And if you believe that....) :)

"No, I haven't seen a 666 birthmark on him -- why do you ask?"

Sir, this boy seems to be lost. Can you help us find his home?

Your Holiness, is this man bothering you?

"...and my daughters haven't had a drink in four days!"

"My husband doen't think this is the Vatican, can you please tell him it is. Thanks JP"

"I like what you've done with the place. Is this Pergo flooring?"

(Sorry for the multiple entries. A comic goldmine.)

Forgot one...

"Yes. Jeb is actually the smart one."

(I realize none of the entries here are really captions, including mine.)

Your Holiness, he is just to shy to ask, but the USA needs a loan!

Kinda fun to see my regulars show up here and make funny. It's the only smile this day has held.

Look at me dad, this is so coooool. Narnar nar nar nar, Are we there yet. I want an ice cream. I still can't believe how if you just say things people believe them. Maybe I am God? I'll ask the old man in the white dress.

Laura Bush(middle) begs for the forgiveness of her husband George(left). President Bush was then able to leave the building before he could be apprehended by ICC officials.

(Yes, newspapers can be that anal about who is where in the pic!)

"Laura, I'd like to thank you for bringing George by. I wouldn't have believed he was really as bad as everyone says unless I saw it for myself. By the way, take it easy on the Valium -- this will all be over soon."

Just as soon as Laura gets through talkin' to the Pope I'm gonna ask her if we can enlarge the Oval Office and redecorate. This place is more my style.

Laura: I really don't feel comfortable pulling on your finger, your holiness, but if you insist...

Don't these Catholics have a saint who can find lost things? I know those WMDs are somewhere ...
