Washington Post Juxtaposition Fail

Juxtaposition FailI dropped in to one of the news sites I visit regularly, the Washington Post site, and found the juxtaposition of the headline and ‘lead’ photograph quite hilarious.

On the left, the Post was running a cycling slide show of images related to tonight’s Oscar awards, including one of Heath Ledger portraying The Joker in ‘The Dark Knight’. Meanwhile, the headline story on the right was a fluff piece about how the recently-passed ‘stimulus’ plan will potentially benefit government workers.

When you put it all together (especially on a small screen, like that on my Eee PC, which cuts off any/all Oscar related captions), I find it funny.
