President Obama's visit to Dallas earlier this week produced a photo showing a scowling Gov. Rick Perry that has become a caption contest across Facebook.

The photo from a meeting that included a discussion between Obama, Perry, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Judge Clay Jenkins, Dallas County Commissioner Elba Garcia and Democratic Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson of Dallas about border issues related to the wave of unaccompanied children from Central America was tweeted by New York Times reporter Doug Mills.

Mills added the diplomatic caption, "President Obama shares a light moment Mayor Mike Rawlings, with Gov. Rick Perry at the end of the table." Yahoo describes it as a "photo for the ages."

The photo has drawn nearly 700 caption suggestions on Democratic blog Burnt Orange Report's Facebook page. Sample: "The cool kids are teasing me again."
