This motifake is clearly the line in the sand. I'm a fan of the edgy stuff, and when I first saw this one, the feeling was one of amusement and admiration. It's a harsh reality... and kids, that's what humor is for.
The ph**ographer that took this ph**ograph was haunted by it for the remainder of his life. He finally committed suicide.

This is so sad. Didnt find it funny at all. Sad Panda's. I hope who ever took the picture helped him or something.

There's actually a sad story behind that. I'm not sure exactly what he did to help, but whatever it was it was not enough. He was haunted by this image. I belive he actually took his own life several years later. But this child was one of hundreds ...

or thouseands in the area at the time suffering this fate.

Go to ph**osthatchangedtheworld.com. It says that the ph**ographer, Kevin Carter, scared the vulture away right after taking the pic. The vulture was not about to attack the child, and no one knows what happened to him or her.

By "not about to attack" I meant only that it was likely prepared to wait a while before doing its thing.

It seems to me you're right about Carter's suicide. D'jou find anything more on that, Sean?

If I were an a**hole, I would say: 'Your Poverty Is No Wonder! Instead Of Chilling Out You You Better Got To Work!' But I'm a nice person, so this ist extremely sad. Nevertheless I like this kind of humor, sorry. ;)
