At least they didn't use Comic Sans.

I liked the Downs Syndrome guy. I wonder if they knew they were doing that.
 
2013-12-15 06:56:16 PM  
I think Arabic is all serifs so there is no sans
 
2013-12-15 06:56:43 PM  
Dang they really went full potato on that banner, didn't they.

I dunno man, Egypt looks like it has plenty of sans... Ever seen the Pyramids? Surrounded by sans.

There's doctors
And lawyers

What do you expect when you outsource to Iran's photoshop agency?

Nice to see a non-Townhall-AT-Politico story get a link. It reminds me of one of the reasons I started lurking here so many years ago... I used to find weird and near-impossible-to-find sites from the links here... Now it's like... whoa abrawhat?

Note to self: Do not give Constitutional Banner duties to intern from American university with drinking problem.

Soldier guy on the right does not look too happy to be stuck beside the DS guy and so far from the smiling Irish chick.

That's fail to the power of suck, right there.

Photo of the banner creator.

Created by the same team that did the Obamacare website.

Let's see, misspelling? Out-of-context stock photo?

*reads TFA*

Wow, check and check.  Now all we need is for the owner of the stock photo to sue for copyright infringement or some such foolishness.

Egyptians? In my constitution? It's less likely than you think.
 
2013-12-15 07:29:57 PM  
They must be using the same editors that the Dems use here
 
2013-12-15 07:36:40 PM  
In before a conspiracy theory on how this is proof the Americans and/or American Jews actually wrote the new constitution for them and have been behind everything since the fall of Mubarak , all along.

But those pyramids were built by serifs.

Serif don't like it.
Font the casbah.

Come on! A Down's Syndrome model? No way this was a mistake. Maybe the design company was shortchanged by the agency that ordered it before and decided to get even.

Don't worry, Egypt. After next year's armed insurrection, you'll get another chance.

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: [i1.kym-cdn.com image 494x700]


I would so get one that.... after about 4 months of feeding her a couple cheeseburgers every day, and making sure she doesn't go puke them up.

I'll always think back to The Bugle's expert assessment of the situation in Egypt: The world's media, like new parents videotaping their child learning to walk, are so focused on documenting this learning experience that they fail to stop them from bashing their head on the edge of the coffee table when they inevitably fail.

TFA: "Three out of the five people whose images were used on the banner appear to be foreigners."

Racial profiling?

As politics becomes more and more disassociated from leadership, this will increase.  People are voting for the show, not for solutions.  That includes you.
