The "Send" Button Strikes Again
The always feisty blog Kiss My Big Blue Butt is offeringa good tale
about Terriann Carlson, the public information officer for the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office.
Carlson apparently thought she had a really, really humorous bit of Internet magic. It was a slide show purporting to demonstrate how digital editing can improve any image.
There was a picture of a somewhat ragged-looking model followed by a digitally improved version of the same photo. Then several similar examples. Then a picture of a horse's ass that was transformed into...wait for it....Hillary Clinton!

Apparently unable to see the screen through her tears of laughter, Carlson — in trying to forward the hilarity to pals — instead sent it out to her media contact list. (Which we're not on, for some reason.)
Ten minutes later she sent out a follow-up: "I am truly sorry for that unprofessional mistake. That was sent by error and I apologize if I offended anyone. Please accept my sincere apology."
Carlson hasn't returned our phone call, so further details of the kwazy hi-jinks, like how often she sends this stuff to pals, are unclear. — Richard Connelly
