"What's Wrong With this Picture?" 2.0: A New Version of the Puzzle

Posted By on Wed, Apr 21, 2010 at 8:11 AM

Former mayor and current 9th District congressional candidate Willie Herenton introduced the game of "What's Wrong With This Picture?" Players will recall that correct answers to the first version of the puzzle were (1) that members of Congress from Tennessee were identified as "state representatives" and (2) that one of the "Tennesseans" pictured in what appeared to be a composite photo spread of the state's delegation was actually from out of state.

Now Herenton has produced a new, improved version of his picture puzzle. Okay, sharp-eyed readers, take a shot at it. What is glaringly wrong about this version, which appears on the ex-mayor's campaign web site? (Scroll down to the bottom for the correct answer, but, no cheating, give it the old college try first!)

OK, here's the correct answer. Has the 7th District's Marsha Blackburn, asssistant Republican whip and the scourge of Democrats' legislation in the Congress, really come over to their side??? We don't think so!

And, yes, there were actually two errors in the picture, of course. The actual congressman from Memphis' own 9th District is still Steve Cohen. But that was a gimme, a red herring to distract the careless puzzle-solver. Stay tuned for future versions of "What's Wrong With this Picture?" We'll bring them to you as we encounter them.
