The screaming man to the right makes it even perfecter and horribler.

The erroneous apostrophe and the 10:52 am anon commenter with his perfecter and horribler gave me a piercing headache. I am off to take an advil.

I used to work hot copy at my local newspaper- a thankless graveyard graphic design job where one makes last minute corrections for ads and layout adjustments before sending the paper to press, and I can tell you this was no unfortunate mistake. The most black-hearted, sick fucks in art direction are the poor bastards who spent bucketloads of money at a good art school only to find themselves working a 10pm-5am shift with a bunch of yahoos straight out of college making minute adjustments in a high volume, high stress environment. Anytime I see an awkward, ironic, or inappropriate contextual ad in a paper- I see the faces of my old graphic design manager and art director snickering over a lightbox.
