Maybe it's just the combination of shadows, the sharp stare that often accompanies intent listening to a question and the fact that he's literally in possession of the most precious, sought-after and powerful (non-Stern) commodity in his world, but it sure looks to me like Jason Kidd's got some diabolical business rolling across the movie screen behind his eyeballs right here.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was the look of evil pleasure on Wayne's face as the electrical fire burned out of control in the super-sad ending to "Wayne's World," when he seemed to welcome the dancing flames. The second thing was Thom Yorke singing, "When I am king, you will be first against the wall." The third was, "It would be very, very horrifying to hear Jason Kidd's soft voice commanding non-human minions to step up the degree of violence with which they're torturing you." And now, that third thing is literally all I can think about.

While I curl up under my desk for some of that real good fetal-position rockin', why don't you tell me what you think the newly crowned champ's thinking here? Best caption wins the aid of at least one like-minded individual hellbent on defeating Emperor Kidd's Robot Army and remaining free. Vive le Résistance, and good luck.

Winner, Montgomery: Abe-y got back.

Runner-up, Russell S: Carlisle awkwardly tries to guess where DeShawn Stevenson's new tattoo is located.

Carlisle: "Here?"

Stevenson: "Warm...ooh, HOT! HOT!"

Carlisle: "That's it, I'm out."

Second runner-up, TimothyS: Oh sure, fan behind DeShawn to pass the blame. You're not fooling anyone, Mr. Breakfast Burrito.
