Putting the stroke in heat stroke: What was USA Today thinking when it published this graphic?

by editor on July 8, 2011

USA Today’s weather page was a little hotter than usual on Friday, July 1. Seems to us this graphic may be a little too graphic.

Apparently staff cutbacks at Gannett are more severe than we thought. They seem to have laid off whoever was responsible for actually looking at illustrations before they run them.

I especiallly enjoy it when the temperature fluctuates between low and high temperatures, up and down, up and down……

Dirty minds all of you. When I look at that graphic and all I see is a depiction of the sun gently blowing on a red, engorged and very stiff thermometer about ready to blow its wad ….. of mercury.

You’re right. Only somebody who’s mind is in the gutter would see anything sexual about that picture. I recognized it immediately.

LoL Depending on who’s doing the grabing I believe I could suffer the affects of a heat stroke too. 🙂

Ok, so at first I was thinking honest mistake…no one checking closely…but what’s with the Sun???!!! Cheeks puffed and mouth ready to blow?? Even the Sun has to drop to its knees and worship the great phallic symbol of climate change??

Putting the squeeze on the “dick”. I like it! All GOP contenders should agree to use this for their unity logo.

Is that the New York skyline? Must be a picture from Ramon and Todd’s honeymoon.
