Have you seen Angela Merkel?

The Announcer (HaMevaser), a small orthodox newspaper in Israel, has removed all female world leaders from a photo at the rally against terrorism last weekend in Paris.

Missing from the image is Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel, Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo, Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorington-Schmidt and European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

Here is the original photo:

"Including a picture of a woman into something so sacred, as far as we are concerned, it can desecrate the memory of the martyrs and not the other way around," said editor Binyamin Lipkin.

In the ultra-orthodox community showing women in photos is typically a big no-no, due to modesty concerns, and Lipkin said he was worried about what children might think.

Altering a news photo at a march focused around issues of censorship and free speech is bad enough as is, but the paper's photoshop skills aren't that great either.

Here's a closeup shot of a stray black glove, with no body attached.


A British Newspaper Fell for This Troll's Fake Letters Again and Again

Irish writer Seamus O'Reilly has been trolling newspapers like Metro with "Rush Hour Crush" letters and stories of good samaritans. Though a lot of them get rejected, these hilarious fake stories have made it in the paper more than a few times. As O'Reilly told Mashable, "It's not for me to say I'm a genius of the short form letter gag. That's for others to say. On a near constant basis. To every single person that they meet." Enjoy.
