The original

When we spotted this pic of Mark Zuckerberg swarmed by media at yesterday's Facebook News Feed announcement, we immediately thought it could use some embellishing. So we called on our ever-creative CNET readers to fire up their photo-editing software and caption-writing skills and liven the picture up. As usual, they came through -- in a big way.

Click through our gallery to see some of our favorite submissions, starting with our top four picks. Congrats to the winners, and a big thanks to all who submitted!
