News, but not the serious kind
Who WAS that masked man?
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!
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…
