The "Send" Button Strikes Again

The always feisty blog Kiss My Big Blue Butt is offering

a 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
