Photoshopping the Headlines: Dolly

posted by Jason Boyett

Hurricanes are no laughing matter, especially for those affected by high winds, evacuation, and flooding. But sometimes their names are pretty funny. And I can’t help it. All day yesterday I saw headlines about Dolly “lashing” Texas — or whatnot — and I kept picturing a giant cloned sheep with a whip in its mouth.

Today, I saw this headline: “Dolly Dumps Heavy Rain on Texas Coast.” And, unbidden, a new and equally horrific image popped into my mind. So I did a quick-and-dirty Photoshop recreation of it.

Headline: Dolly Dumps Heavy Rain on Texas Coast

Maybe this should be a series: Crappy Illustrations of Timely Headlines.

Or maybe not.

All I can picture when I see that headline is Dolly Parton! She’s no-nonsense like that, you know. I could see her “lashing” Texas if Texas really needed a lashing!

My Introvert Interview

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou
