CAPTION CONTEST: What is going on in this picture?



Somehow this photo of Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Lady Gaga sums up America, circa 2011, perfectly. During "Dick Clarks' Rockin' Eve," the pair danced in the New Year — and even kissed at midnight.

What do you think? What's really going on in this picture? The best we could come up with were "Security! Get this sick old creep away from me!" or "Item: Intergalactic space princess and confused billionaire to form third-party ticket for 2012."

We'll run your funniest responses in this week's paper.
