Picky, Picky, Picky ...

I just got back from doing the food shopping. I was putting a box of DiGiornos Frozen Pizza in the freezer when I happened to spot a photo of a "referee" on the back of the box. DiGiornos is having a contest to win tickets to the NCAA Final four in 2009.

This "referee" is blowing a metal whistle, on a yellow lanyard. He's wearing a collared jersey, a rather large watch, what appears to be, a wedding band, on his right hand, and belted pants.

I know that I'm being picky. DiGiornos is good at making pizza, not at officiating NCAA basketball games, but, this is a multi-plus-million dollar company, that probably has a multimillion dollar advertising budget. You would think that someone at DiGiornos, or at their marketing company, would let a real official look at the photo before putting it on millions of boxes of pizza.

Well, maybe the photo got published backwards. Disagree on the belted pants, though. No tugging needed.
