Bizarro: (Adjective) Beyond bizarre; very strange or unusual.
I get a lot of stuff from PR agencies sent to me, because apparently they mistake me for some kind of influential, respected pillar of the online journalism community. At any rate, this was by far the strangest thing that has ever passed through my inbox, and I couldn't help sharing it. Here was the caption that came along with the above image:
Pharmaceutical Billionaire Stewart Rahr was surprised in his office with a visit today by Regis and Joy Philbin. Regis took a tour of Stewart’s factory and loaded up on shaving cream, cosmetics, and cologne, but Rahr refused payment. When he returned to his office he found that Regis had hid $400 under his keyboard
My favorite part is the "Thanks, Reg!" I showed the photo to my boyfriend last night and read the caption aloud and had tears running down my face by the time I got to that part. (OK, so I might have been a little drunk, too.) Regis Philbin is pretty much instant comedy (second only to Richard Simmons) but beyond that -- seriously, what the hell is going on here? Why did the sender feel the need to photoshop the background? Poorly
? I mean, the background is literally overlapping the foreground in some parts. That's not even a rookie mistake. In fact, the only viable excuse for this mistake would be if Regis Philbin himself photoshopped this picture. Incredible.Editor's note: I even made this picture my wallpaper. I'm not even joking.
