Newsnight caption challenge

Sarah McDermott | 15:45 UK time, Wednesday, 29 April 2009


We would expect the Newsnight audience to include its fair share of rapier wits, so to that end we are laying down a challenge - come up with a funny caption for this picture of Barack Obama, who of course we are putting in the spotlight later tonight in our special programme to mark his first 100 days.

Our editor Peter Rippon has already had a stab, coming up with:

The president who can do anything: 'I found this guy in my hat."

Deputy editor Jasmin Buttar suggested:

Since becoming First Lady Michelle Obama has developed her own distinct fashion sense.

But can you do better? Only one way to find out...

And don't forget to join us at 10.30pm tonight on BBC Two for a special live programme from Chicago, Obama's political home, where we'll be hearing from Reverend Jesse Jackson and some of the Windy City's finest as we assess Mr Obama's progress so far.
