Stupid News for 3/14/14

   Target is currently leading the pack of recent photoshop fails, after The Ethical Adman and other bloggers noticed that the retailer had managed to crop the crotch out of a model's bikini photo. The ad was for a Xhilaration Junior’s Midkini 2-piece Swimsuit in Leopard Print. Not only had the photo editor cropped out a significant portion of the model's thighs, he or she had also taken off a chunk of her torso underneath the elbow -- all for a "slimming" effect. Target removed the image from its website after several media outlets picked up the story. Ethical Adman wrote, ""If it weren't part of an ongoing attempt to mould unrealistic bodies in fashion marketing, it would almost be funny."

     Police in Germany said a father is facing charges for allowing his 3-year-old daughter to ride a motorbike with a top speed of about 40 mph. Police said an officer spotted the girl driving the "pocket bike" and the officer noted the girl "did not possess a valid driving license" and the bike was not registered for use on the road. Investigators said the girl's 22-year-old father was standing nearby and had been teaching the girl how to operate the bike. Police seized the bike and the father was charged with breaching insurance laws and licensing regulations.

     Police in Oregon said they were called to rescue a family who locked themselves in the bathroom when their 22-pound cat became aggressive and attacked a baby. The family called 911 to report their black and white Himalayan cat had become aggressive and attacked their baby, but did not cause any serious injuries before the family members were able to lock themselves in the bathroom with the family dog. Officers arrived at the home and saw the cat flee into the kitchen. They were able to get a dog snare around the feline when it attempted to elude capture on top of the refrigerator and the cat was safely locked in its crate. The family's baby did not require medical attention.
