Welcome back to Caption This. That's Wei Shengchu in the center of the photo. For those who don't know -- and really, why would you? -- Wei is a Chinese acupuncturist who decided to insert more than 100 needles carrying national flags into his head to commemorate the Beijing Games. That's the National Stadium, a.k.a. the Bird's Nest, in the background.
Feel free to supply a suggested caption in the comments section. I will make some selections tonight. And remember, even if you're not a non-winner, please don't jab any needles into your skull without the guidance of a trained professional.
