For the benefit of anyone out there who might have missed why it is we're talking about Barr, a woman who hasn't been relevant since Bill Clinton was president and Billy Crystal was still hosting the Oscars, the former sitcom staple leaped back into the pop culture landscape this week when she accused Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of being no more than poseurs when it comes to their reputation as humanitarians: "Angelina Jolie and her vacuous hubby Brad Pitt make about $40 million a year in violent, psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children,...

Caption This: We're Suri You're So Cute

While our Creative Captioning exercises usually devolve into a snarkfest within the first few minutes, today's picture (it is hoped) can only inspire us to reach the warm, fuzzy and eternally sunny heights of shameless gushing.

Share your hilariously apt captions below and the best entry will win its writer the title of "Official Celebritology Captionologist" for the week of Aug. 17 - 23....
