Caption this, baby. You know you want to.

Instapundit, in the post I just cited here, writes the following about this photo:

Capt.Bei10403062029.Mideast Lebanon Syria Bei104

[AP caption:] "Syrian workers hold pictures of Syrian President Bashar Assad as one cuts himself with a knife during a pro-Syrian demonstration in Beirut, Lebanon, Sunday, March 6, 2005. Man cuts himself to show his support and commitment to his president."

[LATER: I didn't notice this the first time, but is it me or does the guy in the middle give the impression that he'd rather be hanging out with the hot chicks? He's my brother, he's into knives and Assad, Mom said to keep an eye on him, what can you do? So, you free Saturday night?]

That's a good caption. Many other good ones spring to mind:

"What do you mean my Ass-ad 4-Ever tattoo looks 'gay'? I'm'a cut you!"

"Give us all your money, infidel! Can you not see that our Judas Priest cover band has so far only been able to afford one Rob Halford wristband?"

"According to DSM-IV, self-injury is a cry for help! Do you hear, little Satan? A cry for help!"

Got any good ones? Put 'em in the comments.

Update: My Pet Jawa's got a contest going on a similar photo.

Uh, guys? Hezbollah sent along this rolled up poster for Fahrenheit 9/11; where should I stick it?

Seriously, Ahmed, do you really think all these pictures of Assad will make anybody think we had more than four people at this protest?

It's the best time to make a few plans for the long run and it is time to be happy. I have learn this publish and if I may I wish to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you could write subsequent articles referring to this article. I wish to read more issues about it!

All the best wishes for you guys. May Allaah help you in your stugrgle for dignity and freedom.On a side note,the green band at the top of the Syrian flag should be light green,not deep green. The light green one is the standard type used by most opposition groups,including the Syrian National Council,Free Syrian Army and most demonstrators inside and outside Syria.So was the pre-Baath flag. I think this deep green version you have got from Wikipedia,and this is erroneous. Plz see to this.Was salam
