Protester obviously not a copy editor

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by lone star scribe, Aug 15, 2009.

  1. The anti-health care protesters were out in force in Raleigh, NC, on Friday as evidenced by the online photos here. At least one woman might not be sure what she's protesting. Apparently the paper cropped the photo for print editions. Click to photo No. 2 in the gallery.

    Always proofread your work, people! ;D

    Maybe she's in favor of shaving down below.

    That's classic. And surprise of surprises, there's also a "where's the birth certificate?" sign in the background.

    She doesn't like getting pubes caught in her throat like Larry David.

    And in the third one, there's a sign that says 'Senor Citizens get Free Health Care, Senior Citizens Can Drop Dead" (Note, I don't know how to do the tilde sign on top of the n).

    And there's a picture of an old lady with a mustache on the poster.

    Very classy, protestors.

    Photo number four looks like an eharmony ad.

    eHarmony matches you on 29 vital characteristics, including sign-making prowess, strawman construction, thinly veiled racism and foot-stamping ability.

    These aren't exactly the brightest crayons in the box, are they?

    I like the one with the guy holding the sign that says "Ignorant People Vote!"

    Does anyone think it's funny that a there seemed to be quite a few people in the crowd who already have a public health care option – Medicare?
