As part of my job, I edit flats of academic texts. We are supplied photocopies of our texts which we then scan so we can correct printing margins etc. Today, I was working on a book about Issues in Culture Sensitivity which featured a picture of a small white child dressed as an angel and a small black child as a devil. However, by the time I got it, the image was so degenerated, that it sort of looked like . . .
Shirley Temple and Mini Batman!
It is kind of horrible and fascinating at the same time because, while I feel the greyscale on the scanner is seriously messed up, Shirley Temple & Batman wouldn’t be a bad team. He could swoop around and distract bad guys and she could beat them up with an oversized lollipop.
It would be awesome.
