What is Wrong With This Trivia Photograph?

The unintended series of What Is Wrong With… articles has proven to be quite popular. Basically what happens is that something catches my eye — even when it is not obvious — and I post it in an article here at The Gate for you to view as I wonder if you see what I see.

What is Wrong With This Trivia Photograph?

Well, it happened again last night as I was passing a television screen showing a trivia question. The first thing I thought was wow — this place has trivia games, as I enjoy playing trivia; but then I realized that it was the broadcasting of a network whose specialty is game shows…

…and that is the moment when I also realized that something was not right about what I saw; so I took a photograph of it and wondered if you would notice the same thing.

By the way, I enjoy dining on different kinds of pickles in my travels all over the world — even Doritos which had a dill pickle flavour and pickles in Kosher delicatessens — and speaking of pickles, here is the complete text to the I Did Not Know About What to Write. I Was in a Real Pickle… article which I wrote back on Friday, September 1, 2006:

I did not know about what to write. I was in a real pickle…

…so I had to dill with it.

I tried to chip away at finding a FlyerTalk thread about which to spotlight. I decided to spear a brand-new thread that was launched today: The Pickle thread.

“Sweet!” I thought to myself, relishing the idea of writing about a FlyerTalk thread pertaining to one of my favourite foods.

You do not have to be over a barrel in terms of where to find it: in the DiningBuzz! forum on FlyerTalk. My mouth was ajar to the fact that no one else had written about this thread yet. If someone already had, I would have been green with envy.

As of this posting, the thread is too new to reach the briny depths pertaining to pickles. If you have soured on other reading material found on the Internet, then quit gherkin around — you may want to crunch right into this thread.


It is time to have some fun: can you find what is wrong with what is shown in the aforementioned photograph?

I cannot wait to read your correct answers — as well as your creative responses.

In case you missed previous installments of this unintentional series, here are the links to past articles — and despite erroneously having the exact same title, the last two articles are indeed different.

    A cucumber is a fruit. I guess that makes the two guys on each side of the photo the winners of this round.

      I was going to say the same thing. But not only is it a fruit but it is a berry. Strange I know, but botanically true.

    What’s wrong is that this is wasting space on Boarding Area…

      I absolutely agree with you, Boarding Area Fan, that your anonymous gherkin of a comment is indeed wasting space on BoardingArea — and yet I do not censor comments as dill-erious as yours.

      Thank you for reading anyway, as clicks are part of the — er — bread and butter of The Gate
