"Funniest Item" Nomination

Most days, Ninme posts an "Absolutely Funniest Item of the Day". I have one that I think is pretty good, from Michelle Malkin. Time Magazine is running a cover story on Ann Coulter, and on their web site, they have up some pictures on the subject. The denizens of The Free Republic noticed something humorous about one of the pictures. The caption for the picture is: "Protesters blast Coulter at the G.O.P. Convention in New York City last year". Take a close look, and see if you can see what's wrong.
These signs come from a clever group called the Protest Warriors, who mock and belittle moonbats by slipping into their rallies and marches with signs that, at first glance, seem to support their causes, but actually display the frequent illogic of the reflexive anti-everythings. (Citizen Smash is one of the more famous Protest Warriors.) I especially like the "Criminals for Gun Control" sign in the background.
I wonder how long it'll be before Time takes the picture down?

Oh my goodness! That was TOTALLY almost my Absolutely the Funniest Item of the Day today! But the Attack Ad in Latin was just way funnier.

Some days, the competition's brutal.

Both are pretty good, but I think your choice has a much better chance of still being around on the web tomorrow. I'm wondering if they might have included that picture in the hard-cover edition; I guess I'll find out on Tuesday.

Oh it is. Those Time slideshows are THE photo essays in THE magazine. IF they manage to catch on to what they did (which would require the reading of right-wing blogs which they must not do if they've only now decided Ann Coulter is an interesting person) they'd have to trash all the issues that had rolled off the printer already, reclaim the ones in the mail, and reprint entirely by early this morning. There's no way. They're on newsstands today, so they'll just have to deal with it.

It's sad though. They could have used her getting a pie in the face, but instead they used posters by her supporters, so now they have no photographic evidence that she's hated by the left.

I checked at Safeway yesterday. The old caption printed. Hah!

I got my copy today; they have the old caption, but they have the most humorous parts cut off (like the "Communists for Kerry" at the top of the Coulter sign.
