Iconic Shot (sort of): This isn't very nice of me, but...

Although someone skilled in the manipulative art of Photoshop was trying to make a rather humorous statement with a creation that has since made the rounds all over the Internet-connected world, a relatively well-known picture of Princess Letizia of Asturias (left) and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Wife of the President of the French Republic (her official title), was meshed with a completely separate shot taken of First Lady Michelle Obama when all three were in Spain making formal visits in April 2009.

Authenticity is preferable, especially in regard to the worldwide praise Mrs. Obama has garnered for being the most notable White House fashionista since Jacqueline Kennedy.  Yet the underlying point of this contrivance, however sophomoric, is anything but lost on the humble purveyor of this blog.
