And The Winner Is...


U.S. President Barack Obama gets carried away while reaching out to Iranians.
We saw this picture today on the epa photo agency, and decided it was just too good not to publish.

The problem is, we don't really have a story to go with it, so we're holding a caption contest.

The winner of the contest -- as judged by the editors of RFE/RL's English-language website -- will receive...nothing actually.

Enter now. Use the comment box. We dare you.

UPDATE: And the winner is ..."Obama gets carried away while reaching out to Iranians" by Sephia Karta. Congratulations to him or her, and thanks to all of those who participated in the contest without resorting to the use of foul language or insults. Bravo!
