TLO Caption Contest: Markwayne Mullin

There have been a lot of iconic images making the rounds following Wednesday’s bizarre attempted siege of the US Capitol.

From Captain Caveman doing his thing, to the super happy guy waltzing around with a podium, to Generic Trump Supporter Model 105A kicking up his feet on Pelosi’s desk, but for many Oklahomans, the image we’ll all remember is tough-guy Congressman Markwayne Mullin cowering in fear after trying to reason with the mob of crazed individuals he’s courted and enabled over the years, and deep down, probably sides with.

You’ve seen it right?

It got me thinking, maybe we should have a good old-fashioned TLO caption contest for this photo. This is because:

A. It seems like a fun, engaging exercise.

B. On Tuesday night, I developed a fever, chills and stomach ache that felt like someone inflated a balloon in my stomach and then punched my belly repeatedly like I was King Hippo. By Wednesday morning, I was so sick and fatigued I could barely get out of bed. In fact, I actually slept through the early rounds of the capitol riots! Yesterday, I worked up enough energy to go to urgent care to get checked out, and after poking and prodding me and running tests, they sent me to the ER to get a CT scan. Yada yada yada, blah blah blah, I’m now at home loaded up on antibiotics and pain pills to treat a condition called Acute Diverticulitis. Long story short – I don’t feel like doing a lot of working or thinking today, and a caption contest is an easy way to mail it in.

Anyway, I guess leave your caption in the comments below. The best one will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to Mullin Plumbing – The Red Rooter.
