Live from the French Quarter, New Orleans

From Wonkette:
Not Quite the Happiest Place On Earth
So we donít have too much of a stake in the New Orleans Mayoral elections and itís a bit (or a lot) out of our usual purview, but someone sent us this tip that we just canít pass up. We donít know much about candidate Kimberly Williamson Butler, but we have been to New Orleans, and, uh, this picture doesnít quite look right to us:
They then show a fairly unclear composite photo. Here is mine. Here is the webpage to elect Kimberly Williamson Butler Here is a screen-capture in case she changes the photo. Here is my screen-capture of the area of interest -- note the wastebasket:

This is a wastebasket from Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. The wastebaskets are individually themed depending on what attraction they are near, this one is near the Haunted House but the overall shape and construction is unmistakable:

Needless to say, it looks a lot like Ms. Butler's publicity shot was done at the California Disneyland New Orlean's French Quarter and not in the city she hopes to lead... Hat tip to BoingBoing Posted by DaveH at April 13, 2006 4:39 PM
