Now Trending: Israeli Men in High Heels
An ultra-Orthodox newspaper serves up a Photoshop fail
Our intrepid writer Yair Rosenberg, who recently brought us the most Jewish correction in the history of the New York Times, passed along another gem this morning, this time from an ultra-Orthodox newspaper in Israel.
In the picture you’ll notice a protest with two men carrying a banner in front. Alas, where a woman once stood, a man with what appears to be a terrible case of rickets and some stylish high heels has been photoshopped in. (Notice how everyone else is looking in an entirely different direction.)
The worst part of all? They forgot to edit out what appears to be Ron Jeremy in the middle of the picture, carrying a blue backpack.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
