Maybe this layout editor should have had that second cup of coffee.
The Truro Daily News out of Nova Scotia, Canada, ran a front page story about a 17-year-old who has been charged with second-degree murder on Monday. Below the headline is a few paragraphs, followed by a two photos of a man, his face stained dark red.
While it looks like the dude in this photos is enjoying a nice meal of human flesh, he’s just eating pie.
BELOW the photos was the headline “Into the Blue,” a story about the Wild Blueberry Harvest Festival’s popular pie-eating contest. Someone was either having a ton of fun or made an unfortunate, yet funny mistake.
Considering Truro is a local paper, not a ton of people noticed. Then someone submitted a photo of the cover to Reddit, and it hit the frontpage in just a few short hours.
Long live print media.
