The Volcano and Edvard Munch
I was waiting for this one. This morning, it came courtesy of the London Daily Mail.
Remember the occasional supermarket tabloid shot of a volcano, forest fire, or some natural disaster -- complete with eyes, nose and gaping maw with fangs? "Satan's Face Seen In Eruption" or some similar headline?
Well, it's not Satan today. It's Edvard Munch's famous "Scream" painting. And while the tabloid shots are nearly always doctored, I think this one's a natural photograph. Volcanoes can have multiple craters.
Still gave me a chuckle, though.
