Is this a joke?

A week after the city of Madrid banned ultra-skinny models from their fashion week, I run across this. On certain digital cameras, Hewlett Packard allows you to trim unwanted pounds from your photo subjects. So if you're a few pounds over your ideal weight, there need be no photographic record of it.

From the website:

They say cameras add ten pounds, but HP digital cameras can help reverse that effect. The slimming feature, available on select HP digital camera models, is a subtle effect that can instantly trim off pounds from the subjects in your photos!

If there were some way to apply this technology to the ND - Michigan game, to make it appear closer than it was...

That would take more than a fancy camera, my friend.

Matt, my good friend, while I don't revel in your sorrow over Saturday's outcome, for me it was the sweetest Michigan experience in a very long time. My team, so often a source of deep disappointment, finally figured out how to put a team away. I hope the lesson stuck.

As for the camera, what a well-timed and superbly designed device for these United States. I suggest pointing it at Charlie Weis. I love the man dearly, and clearly the Pats miss his offensive genius, but he has gotten bigger than ever in Indiana.
