It’s kooky caption competition time. Tired of seeing the countless photos of anonymous traders the papers trot out to illustrate tales of market madness? Ever wondered what these agitated men were really thinking? Here’s your chance to amuse and amaze us.

Caption the following photos 1-12 (First Dog’s had a crack at a couple just to give you the idea). We’ll pick our faves and give the best five complete caption sets a Sarah Palin Moose dressing tea-towel and a set of First Dog US Campaign Badges. Send your captions to [email protected] with “meltdown” in the subject field.
