After much head scratching and sniffing—I mean, thinking—over which caption to choose (Khrushchev? Nipper? Kodak?) we decided to ask for help. We put in a request for assistance from Miriam Nisbet, who is the Director of the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS). When she isn’t sorting out FOIA requests, she’s working with guide dogs, so we knew she could help us find the right caption.
Congratulations to Peter! Miriam said this one made her laugh out loud. Check your e-mail for a code for 15% off in the eStore.
While Peter’s caption reminds of the dangers of using social media, this record is all about the dangers of spying! The original caption reads “An unabashed Korean puppy holds his ground in an ‘eye to eye’ encounter with a huge Fifth Air Force aerial camera, one of the ‘Eyes of the Far East Air Forces’. The camera is an Air Force K-19B used by night-flying RB-26 aircraft of the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing to photograph enemy airfields, railroad marshalling yards, bridges, supply dumps and troop movements., ca. 06/1951″ (ARC 542230).
This week’s photo features something from Korea as well—put your cleverest caption in the comments below.

Do you have something in Red for Senator McCarthy?
I want a Korean doll that I can call my own.
I want a Korean doll that I can call my own. A Korean doll other fellows cannot see. Then those flirty flirty guys with their flirty flirty eyes will have to flirt with Korean dolls that are real.

Once again, Harry Truman vows to himself to find out who keeps telling foreign dignitaries that he collects dolls.
