Einstein Chillaxin'

I found this image on the internet. I can't remember where it was--probably stuffed somewhere between ugly cats and the Meme of the week.

I was instantly taken with it--an extraordinary mind that doesn't take himself too seriously--genius even. I quickly printed it out to tack over my desk along with my quotes from Kurt Vonnegut and Robert Hughes.

I showed it to my sister, and she suggested it was Photoshop'd. I didn't dive into a frenzy of research, trying to determine if I was right and she wrong. I just wanted to believe it to be an actual photograph.

It was so reassuring upon first glance, and now I, too, am questioning the likelihood of it's originality. 

I need to start keeping these things to myself, so I can enjoy my blissful ignorance.

What do you think, Photoshop'd?

  1. I'd like to think it wasn't. As Socrates famously said, "I am wise for I know nothing". Something along those lines, at least. People shouldn't be pretentious.
