Dear Blog Guy,

Do you really have anything more to say about this photo, or could you simply not resist the urge to make an outrageous pun in the headline?

Busted. Still, as long as it doesn’t happen too often, I consider that to be adequate justification. For precedent, I refer you to Superstition leads to best headline set-up ever… or Amid darkness, a light motif is the leitmotif

Does that look like Bob The Enzyte Guy (from late-night American TV) to anyone else?

If it is, do you think Argentina will keep him?
