Random observations, Summer2009
Notice the lighthearted beach scene -- with not-tzniusdically dressed people, cholila! -- that seems to be captioned with "Tisha b'av kinot."
Maybe the photo is meant to depict a Roman attacking a Jew. Yeah, that's it.
Another funny idea: What's really missing from the yiddishe Internet? Celebrity gossip sites. We have yenta sites, like Vosizneias and Yeshivaworld, but those don't really capture the snark and sarcasm and mean-spiritedness of an authentic gossip column. I don't want to know which rebbes and gedolim visited which holy site and held a peiros tish; I want to know which rebbishe einiklach were spotted by the paparazzi at 3 in the morning outside a club in SoHo. Which celebrity shidduchim are being redd? Which are being broken?! Inquiring (and under-stimulated) minds want to know!!
So yeah, somebody get on that. Call it JuicyLashonHara.com and people will be bookmarking it right and left. Just don't read it between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. ;).
