Yahoo! vs. Any Possible Ambiguity
« on: September 01, 2009, 05:55:55 AM »
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 --> which points 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!


Sure enough!
