Less-Than-Fresh Catch

Um, is is just me, or is this sidebar of the most popular news stories on my hometown's news website, Cuyahoga Falls Patch, a liiiiittle bit awkward?


How's that for some uncomfortable juxtaposition?

EDIT: And am I the only one noticing this? No one else I've showed it to seems to get it...

EDIT: No one gets it but my mom, & maybe only because I giggled when she read it aloud on the phone with me (thanks for indulging my bizarre sense of humor, Mom). I've included this updated graphic to assist those of you who are not my mother:


You get it now, right?

Ok I had to read it like 3x all the way through to see what you pointed out.  Damn you're good. I wouldn't have ever thought twice (though I probably would have only skimmed a word or two from each) if I saw that on my own! 

LBB said...

Yikes.  That IS disturbing.

Alexis said...

Haha! I laughed at the first graphic, too funny.

Thank you for clarifying that you got it without my help. FINALLY, SOMEONE.

mandy said...

Haha, thats funny. (And yes, I needed the second graphic.)

DUN DUN DUN. Very suspect.

Love the new layout, by the way!

I got it the first time! Hilarious. It's like they don't even know what they are talking about. Typical smalltown mistake, haha.

The sad part is that the video was about something else entirely, not the
body found in the river. This "popular stories" feed is automatically
generated based on which stories have been clicked on the most, & these
unrelated stories with unfortunately related titles have both been read a
lot this week, so they both showed up there. Awful!

Stephany said...

Ha! I saw this before you edited it to show the awkward titles and laughed. :) Just... not good. Not good at all.

Renee said...

HAHAHA I love this.

I totally got it!

Dead body in river. Graduation! Fishing. Seniors! SO AWKWARD.

hehe. i have to admit i kinda "needed" the highlighting to get it. but i would like to blame the fact that i'm german and english is my second language. that should count, right? *cough.cough*

Lizzie said...

I got it... total FAIL though ;)

Jamie pilgrim said...

I actually noticed the connection between #2 and #4 right away! In fact I thought that's what you were initially pointing out! 

Kristin & Megan said...

Ewwwwwwww with a capital E! Not sure if you saw last week, but you won one of our giveaways! Could you email us from the address you want to be contacted at? xoxo

Dude, I totally got it.

Also, your comment about my awesome Jew-ness made me realize I use the phrase, "saving a few shekels" ALL THE TIME. Either it's going to become my *thing* or I need new material.

I got it the first time around and it's definitely awkward. And a little cringe-inducing.
