Sometimes, The Headlines Write Themselves

Many years ago, I subscribed to the Columbia Journalism Review. One of my favorite features was the section that featured various faux pas by printed news publications. It often featured the unfortunate confluence of a headline and a photograph. This image from Yahoo News would have been a good fit:

Just don't go prodding any lower, Mr. President.

I think the funniest part of the photo is that Obama is wearing a crisp white shirt and Italian made slacks. Most of us painters only pick up the roller when we're safe inside our painter's pants and ratty old Greatful Dead t-shirts.

I'm thinking that he wasn't on the job very long. Even so, you have to wonder if he planned on ever wearing those clothes again.
