“La la la la, la la la la, Elmo’s World! Hi everybody, it’s Elmo! Everybody? Why are you ignoring Elmo?”

Poor Elmo. It looks he might be lost. Or panhandling. Poor, poor Elmo. Times are tough, after all, but we hope not. What do you think our favorite red monster is up to? Write a caption to the photo above, and we’ll send the author of the one that tickles us the most a NewsHour mug.

How it works: Every other Tuesday, we post a photo. You compose a caption, submit it in the comments section below or on NewsHour Art Beat’s Facebook page by 5 p.m. ET Friday.

We’ll announce the best caption on Art Beat the following Tuesday and send the winner an official NewsHour mug. The tiebreaker for similar or identical entries will be earliest time of submission.
