It’s the Irish Times again, folks. I said last week I thought I might have a problem getting away from this particular publication when it came to candidates for this dubious gong. I wanted to be wrong.
This week’s gem comes from an article which claims to give us guidelines for introducing new techology to skeptical employees. Oh, my Blog.
I have a few alternative headlines for the Irish Times:
1. FIVE VICTIMS OF SERIAL ATTACKER ‘THUMB-BREAKER TOM’ DELIGHTED TO HAVE CASTS REMOVED
2. LANGUAGE LAB STUDENTS UNAWARE THEY ARE BEING EXPLOITED BY STOCK PHOTO AGENCY
3. SKEPTICAL EMPLOYEES IN CULT TURNAROUND SHOCKER!
Now, despite the obvious supremacy of the Irish Times when it comes to stock photo abuse, I have to give an honourable mention to that guru of sandalled culture and egalitarian vegetables, the Guardian, which posted this gem last week.
Amid all the trouble in the world, this poor attractive man has had THREE MANAGERS. THREE. I don’t know how he can go on. The trauma! The hopelessness! The need to hold one’s modelesque head in DESPAIR!
I dunno about you, but this worker does not look “frustrated” to me. He looks bloody inconsolable. Way to go, Guardian.
That’s it for this week. Please feel free to suggest your own captions at will.
