A news report from The Pretoria News stating that "closure of state buildings in Pretoria is illegal" and then they use a picture of Johannesburg......  Buggedout Twirling TongueOut

Isn't that the way it is done these days?  Find an artful or dramatic pic in the photo archives that illustrates the text, rather than an actual pic of the thing being discussed?  All I know is that I see it a lot.

Gets pretty silly.  I have seen pictures of people, places, and what they are doing completely at odds with the accompanying text.  Not that anyone seems to care.

My favorite story has to do with Beverly Sills...

Before she got famous, she did a gig a a Nebraska high school at the same time the state was hit with this wheat fungus that was killing the cattle....

On the front page of the local paper, there was a picture of a dead cow, captioned that Beverly Sills was to sing at a local high school....
Under Sills' photo on the front page, the caption read, "Stinking Smut hits Nebraska"

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
