What Qualifies As News Any Longer?

What a weird photo. What a weird story about it: "A spokesman for the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department told the Houston Chronicle that the photo is real and not photoshopped. However, the spokesman said the picture is a little misleading.'It's not as bigly as it appears,' spokesman Steve Lightfoot said. "[It's an] optical illusion created by extending frog toward the camera – similar to what you see with fishermen holding up fish to make them appear larger. Still a big bullfrog, though."

Bigly!? I love it and intend to co-op it at my earliest opportunity but an official spokesperson using it?
Definitely ready for a position in President Mountain Dew Comacho's Cabinet.
I weep for the species

The closer something is to the lens, the bigger it looks relative to things in the background. It is a normal sized bullfrog. What's next? A picture of an airliner passing near the moon, with the title "OMG...this airplane is larger than the moon!!!!!"

Kind of like the illusion of Trump's tiny hands. If he held them closer to the cameras, they'd look more bigly, or perhaps even normal-sized.
