Shivering on the 49th Parallel
Friday, February 3, 2006

This beats Porno Shrimp, hands down. After all the hubbub about the Largest Gay Cruise II calling into port in Grand Cayman, the local paper goes and prints this above the fold... What I wonder though was this: Did the photographer know it when he/she took the picture? Did the writer know it when he/she wrote the article and did the layout? Did the editor miss it when he/she was proofing it? Is it all a big joke and only those of us with dirty minds would pick up on it, or was it an innocent mistake that someone might get fired over? Either way, it's absolutely hilarious.

This is going to become an imfamous cover picture. It's going to get ranked up there with the Caymanian Compass cover photo of the Burger King robbery suspects artist's rendition of two guys with bags over their heads (I have a scan of that somewhere, and when I find it I'll post it up, too)

If you haven't figured it out yet, look closely at the “chinese symbol“ on the guy on the left's shirt. If you can't quite make it out, here's the link to “today's paper”. The link will die in a couple days, so I'll post the link to the archive (if it makes it that far) in an update when it does.

UPDATE #1: I put the wrong link in for Today's Paper, above. It's fixed now.

Update #2: the Today's Paper link will go to Today's Paper whichever day today is. Here's the permalink to the article in their archives
