I cannot resist a caption contest

I guess that this has been out there for a while, but I did not see it before this weekend. Caption contest?

My entry: "I'm so awesome, I can almost pull off this bizarre paisley tie."

(Don't miss the text, which also includes a review of Professor Baran's exercise routine. (Sparring partner: No shots to that head, please.)
