News, but not the serious kind
I don’t recall, Your Honor, it’s all a blur
Do not adjust your monitor, these two guys have intentionally distorted eyes because, we are told, they are on trial and their faces have been blurred “in accordance with German privacy laws.”
Are you kidding me? Because it looks like the agency that did the blurring just phoned it in. Is there anybody who wouldn’t recognize these guys if you ever saw them again?
I guess this must be the same privacy tactic that flummoxed us by putting glasses on Superman and calling him Clark Kent.
“Hey look at those two guys in this blog, Hulga! Isn’t that Sebastian and Markus, those boys we met at Oktoberfest last year?”
“It sure is, Greta! Remember, our eyes all looked like that after an evening of drinking peppermint schnapps!”
“Right, and that’s the beaded wrist band you gave to Sebastian! Well, this is goin’ right up on my Facebook wall, Hulga! Small world, huh?”
“Hang on, Greta, I’m Tweeting it right now. Achtung, gang! Guess what Sebastian and Markus are doin’ this summer? ROFL!”
