Royal Wedding: Blissful Moments ala NST

This was what I saw when I had a look at NST Online's front page this morning.

The headline reads: The Royal Wedding: Blissful moments... referring obviously to the wedding of the Raja Muda of Perak yesterday.

The picture directly above it however, depicts an orang utan hanging from a branch. The ape sure looked like it was having a blissful moment indeed.

I don't know about you, but if we were in Thailand... whoever webmastered this page would be slapped with a charge of Lese Majeste quick smart.

The fine print under the picture indicates that the monkey belongs to a different article. Fair enough but you'd have to admit that the layout truly leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
