And Then They Stopped Trying

I've complained before about the constantly declining standards of what passes for journalism in this country. Newspapers constantly have typos, and while there's no Australian equivalent of the always abhorrent Fox News, there's never a shortage of idiots with misleading information who are ready to take advantage of other idiots with no information.

And so, the latest example isn't quite that serious given it falls more under celebrity/entertainment news than anything else, but I want everyone to appreciate the caption on this photo from the Sydney Morning Herald website today:

Perhaps there's a major shortage of caption writers with 6th grade diplomas here in Australia.
