Welcome back to Caption This, which will be held this week on Monday and Wednesday. (Thursday will bring the December edition of the Write Your Own Joke contest.)

For the fact-mongers out there, the photo is of two disgruntled Bengals fans watching the Ravens dismantle the home team 34-3 yesterday in Cincinnati. Though there is some evidence that the men don’t want to be recognized, for posterity’s sake they are Patrick Sandker (left) and Nick Stewart.

Feel free to submit a suggested caption in the comments section. I will post some selections tonight.

(UPDATED)

Here are a baker's dozen:

“Fan on right mourns the suffocation deaths of other disgruntled Bengals fans who opted for plastic, not paper.” (Martel; others who worked the paper/plastic angle included Zowie and Munkcy)

“Based on what he saw, the referee signaled a first down on the Ravens’ latest play against the Bengals.” (Midvalley)

“Bengals fans plead for someone to get arrested to take their minds off the game they are watching.” (Texadillo)

“Nick can't take it as Patrick insists on singing all six verses of the Bengals fight song.” (Finsterbaby)

“Because they can identify several Bengals, some fans have been placed into protective custody.” (manta)

“These denizens of Cincinnati could not bear to watch as a local radio station released live turkeys from a helicopter.” (Mark G; Martel also worked in this vein)

“I can't believe we wore the same thing, this is so embarrassing.” (grlly)

Bill Belichick's new system for recording the opposing team's defensive signals undetected.” (Clef; Martel also riffed on that)

“Two members of the Bengals try to keep a low profile while the NFL's legal attention is focused elsewhere.” (Munkcy)

Henry Paulson and Ben Bernanke appear before the Senate as they try to explain how the $700 billion bailout is working.” (vgtwoomph)

“These fans just couldn't handle the shame after discovering that Cincinnati International Airport is actually located in the state of Kentucky.” (rock chalk)

“Dude, sit down ... as if being at this game wasn't embarrassing enough.” (buck-i-girl)

“Unfortunately for the Bengals defense, these were the only sacks during the game.” (gill)
