Single Boob Theory

If you look closely, you can see Lee Harvey Oswald standing by the dingy holding his Mannlicher-Carcano rifle.

TMZ Falls For JFK Photo Hoax

Photo that "could have changed history" actually from a Playboy shoot

In a colossal screw-up, the gossip web site TMZ today published a photo purporting to show John F. Kennedy frolicking on a yacht with a harem of naked women--except that the image actually appeared as part of a November 1967 Playboy photo spread, The Smoking Gun has learned. The TMZ hoax was billed as an "exclusive" featuring a photo that "could have altered world events" had it surfaced prior to JFK's presidential campaign. "It could have torpedoed his run, and changed world history," the site added. In reality, the photo appeared in story about Playboy's "Charter Yacht Party: How to Have a Ball on the Briny with an Able-Bodied Complement of Ship's Belles."

Now that the photo has been so easily debunked, it's fun to watch TMZ's "expert" testify to its authenticity.
