Just for the sake of levity, here is some photoshopped silliness.
There are also other images of the bear splayed out on its back, surrounded by vodka bottles. And a balalaika.
I fucking love these people. So much pain, so much fear among people who have a brain in Russia these days. It’s a cautionary tale of what could happen with President Cruz in office.
DOOFUS of the DAY: ‘Hyper Religious’ Newspaper Photoshops Women Out of Paris March, Hopes No One Notices
Paris - A Haredi newspaper removed the image of German Prime Minister Angela Merkel and the Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt from a picture of global leaders marching in Paris.
The women were both taken out of the photograph but Netanyahu remained.
The newspaper, called “HaMvaser,” is published by MK Meir Porush of United Torah Judaism. It reworked the image to remove the women in following with Haredi spiritual rules that ban publishing pictures of women, since it considers the female body to be immodest.
Some Haredi newspapers also refrain from publishing the names of women.
A similar Photoshop disappearance was committed several years ago, when then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and another woman were digitally removed from the iconic “Situation Room” photo of the Osama Bin Laden assassination operation.
There is no basis in halacha (Jewish law) for removing female figures from images, this is yet another example of ignorant fanatics running amuck. At least they are using Photoshop and not machetes or machine guns.
At the very least, these stupid people could have chosen to not include any photograph at all, and spare the rest of us the embarrassment of their idiocy.

Ok, this is what I’m interested in. Last year I signed up for the full CC at $29.99 a month.
Not great, but not terrible either. When my 12 months expire my cost will jump to 49.99.
Now that’s definitely not great.
So Adobe comes out with a PS/LR only offer with a “lifetime” guarantee that the price for early adopters will never rise above $9.99 per month.
That got my attention.
However, digging a little deeper reveals that the “lifetime guaranteed price” is good until Adobe decides to raise it. Also, since my version of PS is part of a Creative Suite, this $9.99 deal isn’t available to me, according to tech support.
Except that it was when I logged in to my account and just for the hell of it tried to sign up for the PS/LR only package.
So what I’m wondering is if anyone with the full CC has tried to “downgrade” to just PS/LR, and did it work? I’ve had more than my share of problems with the CC so I’m afraid if I sign up for a new PS/LR subscription, then cancel my full CC one, nothing will work at all.
t turns out that the 2013 World Press Photo of the Year — the largest and most prestigious press photography award — was, in actual fact, a fake.
A conservative group connected to Colorado’s Secretary of State has been sending political mailers — including a picture of a darker-skinned woman whose face was digitally removed and replaced with a white woman’s face — in an attempt to oppose a landmark voting bill that may soon become law.
Colorado is currently considering a major piece of legislation to improve the state’s voting laws by implementing Election Day Registration, automatically sending mail ballots to every voter, and creating a real-time voter database to detect and prevent fraud. It passed the House last week and will now be taken up by the Democratic-controlled Senate.
Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a frequent speaker at True The Vote events who uses his perch to warn about the supposed threat of voter fraud, is leading opposition to the bill, which is supported by a number of Republican County Clerks and the Colorado County Clerks Association.
Now, a dark money group named the “Citizens for Free and Fair Elections”, which lists its address as that of Gessler’s former firm, the Hackstaff Law Group, is sending out photoshopped mailers in an attempt to pressure the election clerks into switching their position.
Here is the mailer:
The mailer’s background was taken from the following Getty Images photo:
Remember when you were a kid and you used to stare up into the clouds and pick out shapes and animals? Well Chris Keegan has taken that timeless exercise to whole new level by applying it to photos of space from NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory.
A London-based illustrator by day, Keegan says he was particularly interested in the way the photos allowed him to play with scale. He usually works with much smaller ideas and objects, so playing with something as big as the stars was liberating.
“In one picture you can see thousands of stars and the idea of having a person or a bird taking up that sort of size was quite unusual,” he says.
