The great singer/songwriter, poet and punk pioneer Patti Smith is in the red chair tonight, and during taping, photographer George Pimentel captured this shot of George and Patti sharing a laugh.

Now, here's what we'd like you to do: can you come up with a clever caption for this shot?

If you're on Twitter, you can Tweet your version of the pic with the hashtag #GeorgeAndPattiLaugh. Or you can email your work to

We'll post a few of our favourites in the coming days.
