This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Sumo wrestlers, dressed in their traditional Mawashia, cross Seventh Avenue in New York, on their way to a 'weigh-in', October 20, 2005. They are participating in the 'World S.U.M.O. Challenge - Battle of the Giants' at New York's Madison Square Garden on October 22, 2005. (Seth Wenig REUTERS/Reuters)

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

In an effort to emulate actor/singer David Hasslehof's wild popularity in Europe, aging rocker Davey Jones takes his new Chinese daily variety show "Super-Terrific Monkee Hour" on the road.

Captioning. It does a body good.
