Dramatic fake. (Both misidentified and photoshopped specimens will be accepted.)
Help me with this one. We need waves breaking over a seawall and a political leader at a press conference surrounded by aides. I’m trying to think of the rest. Points will be given for duplicates of categories already tagged.
For a while I was contemplating a drinking game, but using the obvious terms — storm surge, millibars, NOAA, evacuation — would also render it unsurvivable.
Any suggestions on how to classify the shirtless horsehead jogger?
(Added) First point goes to Peter Hentges for spotting the dramatic fake shot.
