Yahoo! 1, Any Possible Ambiguity 0.
Now, I accept that Yahoo! isn't exactly the pinnacle of journalism, and I think that I'm pretty forgiving in general, so when I notice a mistake or an oddity on Yahoo! it generally doesn't affect me. When I (relatively) recently spotted this image on the Yahoo! main page, however, I couldn't help but grab it:
Despite how tiny it is, the label HURRICANE BILL isn't what amuses me. I have no major problem with that. It's the little -->
to Hurricane Bill that amuses me. I mean, I can imagine the person who crafted this image thinking, You know, I'd better put an arrow in, just in case.
Please allow me to take a moment to help out this individual in his or her crusade against ambiguity:
O.K., O.K., maybe clarity can
be helpful sometimes.
Anyhow, many thanks to the digital artist who created this wonderfully absurd portrait of Hurricane Bill. I laughed and I'm laughing still!Spel
