Caption Contest: Contract Drafting and Anger Management

Welcome to The Koncise Drafter’s first-ever caption contest! I thought it high time that I let my readers indulge their sense of humor (or snark)—I invite you to submit in the comments your proposed caption to the following photograph.

Allow me to take the first crack, off the top of my head: “Cleary Gottlieb associate responsible for drafting the Google–Motorola Mobility merger agreement reacts to Adams’s demolition job.” (Don’t worry, I’m under no illusion that anyone lost any sleep over it!)
