Unfortunate Photo Crop of the Day


Updated 5:10 p.m. | “We Built It” has been the rallying cry of the GOP during this week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

The phrase — a dig at President Barack Obama’s comments about American infrastructure helping aid the success of businesses across the country — has been splashed across the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where the convention is being held, and has been injected into almost every speech.

And one Internet prankster thought he’d have a little fun with the “We Built It” craze.

A photo — posted on the left-wing blog Left in Alabama’s Facebook page — shows the slogan in oversized capital letters conveniently pictured under the national debt calculator, which reads $15 trillion.

It turns out, the photo isn’t real. But that hasn’t stopped hundreds of people from falling for the prank by sharing it, liking it and commenting on it. Even your HOH team was fooled.

D’oh on our part!
