You Write the Caption: The Liverpool Lovebirds edition

Welcome to the latest installment of You Write the Caption, where we provide readers with a comedy-inducing photo and see what sort of genius SBI readers can come up with.

Congratulations go out to Kevin Anderson, a University of Michigan student, for submitting the winning entry to the Sven-Nery edition of YWTC. Kevin's prize for winning the contest is one of our SBI Mafia t-shirts. If you are an SBI regular then you should pick up your own SBI Mafia t-shirt at

Now, onto the newest contest, which features Liverpool co-owners and fellow American billionaires Tom Hicks and George Gillett, who have apparently kissed and made up after months of feuding (or have simply decided they have no choice but to work together).

Enjoy the photo:
