I don’t know what exactly it says about the state of journalism that this story and many like it routinely appear on CNN.com, but I do know that the caption reads like the set-up for a dirty punchline, or, at the least, an invitation for creative snark. Not that I’m inviting either of those in the comments section. That’s not the sort of thing I’d do.
