Thumbnails are a cruel mistress.

Every once in a while I'll take a spin through Yahoo! News's "Most Popular" section," just to see what stories and photographs have captured the microscopic attention spans of America's web surfers at that particular moment. The photos are mostly cute kitties or Maria Sharapova's undies, but this morning I saw this photo thumbnailed on the Most Popular page:

Looks promising, am I right, guys? But click the thumbnail and you get, well, this.

Dammit, Yahoo! News, it's waaaay too early on a Monday morning for you to be fucking with me like that. "Ha, sike, she's actually a dude!" isn't going to be funny to me until at least Tuesday afternoon.
