(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo, you provide the caption, and then hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of Eli Manning standing next to his new wax statue during it's debut at Madame Tassaud's Wax Museum?
