Beat 360° 4/8/10

Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

US President Barack Obama (L) and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev sign a landmark treaty at the Prague Castle in Prague on April 8, 2010. Obama and Medvedev signed a landmark treaty committing their nations to major nuclear arms cuts. Under the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), the former Cold War foes will be allowed a maximum of 1,550 deployed warheads, about 30 percent lower than a limit set in 2002. It also imposes limits on the air and submarine-borne intercontinental ballistic missiles that carry warheads.

Have fun with it. We're looking forward to your captions! Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

    Obama, do you also think "we are your next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land"?

    Don't worry about that Kyrgyzstan clause there, Barack – it's nothing, nothing...

    Just need to see how you intend to explain to the dummies that despite the reduction in nuclear warheads, both of our countries still have enough toys to destroy that small planet of ours hundreds times over.

    Medvedev tries to figure out how to smuggle the original copy of the START agreement back to Moscow. Obama carefully begins to sign the treaty but knows he will have to hold onto it.

    When Obama apologizes for taking so long to sign all the paperwork, Medvedev pretends he didn't really notice and says he was just 'Czeching' on him.
