In the interest of science, creativity, and the science of creativity, we're posting a film or TV still every week, and we're going to ask you to come up with a clever caption. Whoever's caption gets the most likes will win some kind of nonsense prize from The A.V. Club office, most likely a Simpsons toy of some sort. The winner of the last contest, about Jason Statham's facial expression, was hawkboy, who posited that Mr. Statham was thinking, "Look at me, I'm a cowboy! Howdy howdy howdy!" (Deep-cut reference to The Far Side—nicely done.)
Make sure you post your caption as a new comment, not as a reply, so we can sort out the winner. And though we know you'll be tempted to go for the easy, gross joke, remember that our commenting policy isn't out the window here. This week’s still comes from Side Effects, the supposedly final theatrical film from Steven Soderbergh. It stars Channing Tatum, as did Soderbergh's Haywire and Magic Mike. Here's one to get you started:
“I sure hope the Velcro in this tux is still fresh—I've already torn it off four times this week!"
