I think the joke's on them with this pic. The "hugh" sign has to be a FReeper.

;-D

Unless these are foreign immigrants who are just learning the language. Then the amnesty Democrats are completely screwed when the news gets out.

FReepers know about "hugh" and "series".

The rest of the world does not.

Best to leave such inside jokes off the protest signs.

IMHO.

"I think the joke's on them with this pic. The "hugh" sign has to be a FReeper."

Considering 95% of the people in America have never heard of Free Republic I don't think this is much of a joke. Now these could be infiltrators and these could be careless individuals. Tea Party protesters don't have professional signs made and handed out the way union paid protesters do. Still it succeeds to an extent in making the movement look bad.

Since the invention of spell check the only people who care about spelling are a handful of immigrant kids from the Indian subcontinent.

Most Tea Partiers do know how to pronounce “corps” though.

Even non FRfolks can see that the sign merely left Hugh's last name... to the imagination. ;)

Well, I thought it was funny. Although, the rest of the signs are pretty bad ...

Hate to burst your bubble but the BJ sign was photo shopped from the original “Bush” sign. Besides do any of those people even resemble any one at the Tea Parties? They look more like a bunch of anarchists.

What is galling to me is that misspellings are common even with a spell check program. We all know damn well that liberal protesters have misspelled signs but we can be sure that the New York Daily News has never run a photo slide show of those.

I keep thinking about that recent poll that found Tea Party participants were more highly educated... This certainly makes a statement about all the rest!

Wouldn’t want to be a a small-minded, humorless Liberal...

actually “hugh” looks photo-shopped, notice it looks like a different shade of red.

Sure does. There must be other pictures from this particular event somewhere.

Almost no doubt that it is photoshopped. The “hugh” is also at a different angle as the rest of the sign.

Why is the “HUGH” a different color from the rest of the sign?

I went to the site and looked at the other pics, it appears they are ALL photo-shopped!

This is a hugh and series hoaks!!!!

Most of the signs depicted in that NY rag are photoshopped.

A large proportion of the readers of The Daily News probably won’t even know which words are misspelled.

The NY Daily News is the daily obamanite rag.

Gee, I thought all Tea Partiers were white and old — yet some of the ones with misspelled signs appear to be Asian and Hispanic!!

I think that it is a different shade, to suggest dual meaning. In photoshop, even the beginner knows how to sample colors to match the rest of the letters.

Correct.

This is a shot of a progressive Tea Party crasher trying to make trouble.

Actually, her plan makes a great deal of sense to me.

Isn’t it ironic that the moronic NY Daily News used the racially insensitive word “teabonics”, a play on the word “ebonics”, to describe what they call a lily-white event?
