A California high school yearbook is being recalled after officials discovered a photo that may depict a teenager fingering his date. Let the hand-wringing commence.
It's pretty funny to watch the AP try to report this story. Here's their staid description of the Big Bear High School scandal: "The background of a school dance photo shows a 17-year-old boy's hand inside the clothing of a 15-year-old girl in a way that suggests sexual penetration." They also quote sheriff's spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman: "You know, how you look at a photo and don't notice what's in the background? Then, it's, 'Oh my gosh, look what's going on back there.'" Oh, I know. In fact, I'm not sure anybody graduates from high school without getting their yearbook impounded — although, to be fair, most often the offending fingers are flipping somebody off.
