Priceless

    Priceless

    Do you remember the series of MasterCard advertisments which listed the cost of a few items related to the activity shown and then summarized the value of the experience as priceless? Do you remember that photo which made its rounds into your email in-box several dozen times in 1999, the one of four women sitting together, drinking? One of the women’s pubic hair is visible, presumably accidently?

    Short black dress: $200Round of drinks: $40Disposable camera: $20

    Your beaver on the internet: Priceless

    Well, it turns out that it was a fake. I don’t know why this is important, but I do know that it was widely believed that it was an authentic photograph of an embarassing incident. It seemed important that it be so, rather than a silly hoax. Hoax it is, though. The original, shown at right, is from a series of nightlife pictures presented on the ChicagoScene web site, at URL

    Someone had to tell you. I’m sorry that it was me.

    Have you found errors nontrivial or marginal, factual, analytical and illogical, arithmetical, temporal, or even typographical? Please

    . Thanks!
