For all those overworked understaffed newspaper types will take note  
of this story
from Monday's Peterborough(Ontario) Examiner. It seems the annual  
Santa Claus
parade was taking place and the veteran staff photographer, which are  
few and far
these days, was assigned to take some photos. During the parade of  
marching bands,
Santa Claus and assorted floats, the photographer shot one float in  
particular. This
was from the local Catholic High School and may have been done  
without permission of the
School or school board. The float was a hot tub on a trailer with  
students in it. When it approched the photographer the male student  
leaped up in a school sports jersey and multicoloured, multicheckered  
boxer shorts. This picture appeared on the front page of the paper,  
on the Canadian Press wire service and a Toronto commuter morning  
paper. While the Catholic school
board trustees were outraged, the biggest problem with the photo that  
was missed was
that the students penis was hanging out! Newspaper cuts mean everyone  
missed the problem.
