Last week, Create the Caption starred Justin Bieber awkwardly talking with Craig Sager. The winner was Rizzmiggizz with “Welcome to my chocolate factory, Charlie.” Thanks for those of you that participated! This week, our caption comes from the man that is winning the moment – one Charlie Sheen. I can’t think of anyone that has so captivated the nation like the insane drugged out actor has for the past 72 hours. After opening his Twitter account and gaining hundreds of thousands of followers instantly, Sheen tweeted this picture along with the words, “Winning!… choose your vice.” Can you create a create the caption to describe Charlie’s madness? At least he’s still channeling his inner Ricky Vaughn with that Indians cap. There’s a lot to work with here people, I’m hoping for some awesome captions!
