We dare you to caption this photo.

For about a week, Hu-Dad has been holding this photo of His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey conducting his aggressive napping in the backyard. Such, uh, grace. Such, er, finesse. Such, gulp, refinement. What can Hu-Dad possibly say that the neighbors haven’t already wondered? But then he realized he didn’t have to get in trouble with the Little Curmudgeon by captioning the photo. He’d let the readers do it. So, go ahead, Dear Reader, we dare you to caption this week’s photo.
