Hey, Look -- People In Other Countries Actually Read The Newspaper. (Plus, It's An Extra!)

This goofy Reuters photo accompanies the NYT's lead story on its website this morning, reporting on the North Korean launch of a rocket -- an event that apparently took place so long ago that the Japanese had time to put out an "extra edition" of The Daily Yomiuri.

Also, note the fact that the two people in the photograph aren't even looking at the story about the rocket launch. They appear to be perusing the department store ads. Maybe that's the whole point.

Also, those are rad sunglasses.

I think they're checking the showtimes of "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift."
