Maybe they know where the best local handicapped parking spots are

Over in the right column of this blog is a link to Weather Underground (labeled as "portland weather"). On that site, underneath the five-day forecast, is a little ad with a tagline of Meet Locals. This is almost always accompanied by a photo of an alluring young woman, implying that Meet Locals means Maybe Get Lucky With Locals. Then it says that you can read their hotel tips and travel guides, which tells me that it's actually more like a Frommer's than a dating service.

Anyway, the random photo that came up on today's page was pretty much the same as the others:

But look a little closer. It's actually kind of disturbing:

Clearly, there is something anatomically wrong here. This woman has a disproportionately huge right arm, and no left one. She also appears to be missing the left half of her rib cage.

What is the message here?

i wonder if she is holding up her left arm and her hand is on her own shoulder, which is blocking her rib cage.

or that locally in portland, all you're gonna get is people with missing parts. did you try to meet any locals yet?
