POP Snapshot: How A Pittsburgh Newspaper’s Bikini Article Went Viral For All The Wrong Reasons.

A graphic designer must have had all the best of intentions when they designed the main page for The Pittsburgh Tribune's feature on finding the perfect swimsuit.

A graphic designer must have had all the best of intentions when they designed the main page for The Pittsburgh Tribune’s feature on finding the perfect swimsuit. The headline, “Suit Yourself” is poised next to a lovely model in a bikini. Since the words are placed just above the water, the artist thought it might be nice to add a reflective effect to the words. Sadly, the poorly executed reflection changes the title entirely, instead making it appear as though the newspaper is asking the reader to ‘Sh*t Yourself.’ Yikes.

Now, the photo of the cover has gone viral, appearing on dozens of mainstream media websites.
