Photoshopping: They've Only Just Begun

This photo of President Obama and his national security staff hunkered down in the White House Situation Room as the Navy SEAL team raid on Osama bin Laden's compound unfolded has a lock on 2011 Picture of the Year. At least for non-meteorological events.

That in turn has triggered an orgy of Photoshopped versions. Kill a few brain cells feasting on the details in the version below. Yes, that's an ice cream cone in Hillary's hand.

Even had the technology been available, it's difficult to image Photoshopping, say, the famous photo of Marines raises the American flag atop Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi in one of the concluding battles of World War II. Then again, how about raising a McDonald's Golden Arches instead of the flag?
