Photoshop's Latest Victims





Imagine you purchase your school's latest yearbook. You eagerly flip through the pages to find your own picture. It's there, all right. But there's something about it that isn't quite right. In fact . . . OMG . . . it looks as though your head has been attached to someone else's body. Someone who isn't even the same gender as you!

That's what happened recently to the students at McKinney High School in Dallas, Texas. When they examined their latest yearbook pictures, they discovered that outfits had been changed, necks had been stretched, and hair had been shortened. And that's not all. Thirty-four students had been given someone else's body. There were girls in boys' clothes and boys with clearly feminine bodies. One person was missing an entire arm--and another's clothes had been digitally erased. Her body below the neck was just a flesh-colored blur.

No one has figured out what exactly happened to the McKinney year book pictures. Did an employee get a little Photoshop happy? Was it all just a crazy hoax? Whatever the case, it certainly made the school year a little more memorable.

LOL, that's awesome. I bet it was a high school prank. Ya know, how graduating year in high school everyone does a school prank? (Well, not everone, but you get the idea) My mom did one involving drinking fountains and flowers. Live flowers.

Looks like someone dressing up as Kiki for Halloween... which is what I would do this October if I weren't so tan! ...Maybe I should hide inside all summer? That would do it, right?

Fantastic!! ^^ Though mind you, I wouldn't know what to say if my yearbook was photoshopped...
The headmaster would go crazy?
We'd get never-ending detention until someone revealed that they did it?
They'd recall the entire stash?

Nice artwork of the queen, by the way. xD
