Who WAS that masked man?

November 30, 2009

Dammit Johnson, you call yourself a NEWS photographer? I send you out to shoot a government official at a press conference, and THIS is what  you come back with? Half his face is missing!

Sorry Boss, but there are problems with his mouth…

Oh? He doesn’t have one?

Yes, he has one, but I believe his lips are covered in giant cold sores, and he has a purple rash all over his chin, and, uh, most of his teeth are either missing or rotten, and his gums…

I’m not INTERESTED in  the man’s oral problems, Johnson! So this is the only photo you got of his face?

No, of course not, Boss. I got this one on the left, too…

UH OH! It looks like Justice Ahern used too much Dentur-Grip and got his hand stuck to his face, again.
