Cartoon class photos

2012-04-06 15:16:50.602867+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

This current "OMG! Pictures of my kid! Horrors! Privacy!" trend gone too far: Parents call school photo 'offensive, degrading'. Photographer takes class picture. PTA informs photographer that two kids parents didn't sign picture consent forms. Photographer removes one of the kids, but the other kid is in the picture in such a way that it can't be easily elided from the image, so photographer puts a cartoon face over the kids.

Hilarity Outrage ensues.

I'm beginning to think that the "OMG! PEDOPHILES MIGHT LIKE PICTURES OF MY KIDS!" is something of a "I think my kid is really cute" thing. I imagine that somewhere on the interwebs is a chat room with a bunch of pedophiles saying "Yeesh! Don't flatter yourself."

The photographer actually offered to just re-shoot the photo but was told by the PTA to put the smiley face over the kid's face.

I can't remember if my parents ever signed a consent form to be in a class photo...
