An unfortunate juxtaposition

The excellent Fr Dylan James has some good examination of conscience pages on his blog. I don't know whether it was the wry sense of humour of the blog site managers, or pure accident, but when I looked at the page, I saw, next to the entry for 'lust'…… well, look for yourselves!

Such tricks are often the only "revenge" available to underpaid and overworked sub editor types, but more often than not such juxtapositions are unintentional.

I remember in the 70's seeing a full page ad for the new Fiat 131 in Time magazine, and the copy was all about the virtually indestructable new construction methods Fiat had adopted, and how this would protect occupants in the event of a crash. On the opposite page there was an article about how an opposition politician in Greece had been murdered by having his car run off the road. Yes, you guessed it, there was a graphic picture of a completely mangled ... Fiat 131.
