Welcome back to Slate’s caption contest. Post your captions—20 words or fewer—in the comments section. All we're going to tell you about this photo is that it was taken this week.

Editorial Note: The photo above was coincidentally selected before the Secret Service escort scandal broke. While many of the entries referred to the scandal, we do not mean to imply that these particular Secret Service agents had any actual connection to misconduct in Colombia.
