Mayor Greg Fischer of Louisville, Kentucky had a thought he wanted to share with the world the other morning while he was doing what many of us do when our morning coffee has worked its ineffable magic.
So, Fischer -- who was reading an article in the Louisville Courier-Journal about the city's negotiations with Google Fiber -- shot a photo of a graphic he found "innovative" and tweeted it.
The trouble is that Fischer neglected to crop the photo so that viewers wouldn't realize it was taken while the was on the toilet with the Courier-Journal in his lap and his pants around his mayoral ankles.
