Hold onto yourself

From El Beeb:

Heart attack survivors 'fear sex'

Heart attack survivors are highly likely to avoid sex, fearing it could kill them, US researchers say.

I haven't linked to this story because of its mundane findings. Nor do I highlight it because of stupefyingly banal comments like:

"You can't predict by looking at someone if they are sexually active."

I bring it to your attention purely because of the photo they've used to illustrate it.

It's an odd photo to use for this story, but it's an odd photo anyway. The more I look at it, the odder it gets. Don't write in—I know what's going on. Someone is being hugged on a beach or in a field, right? It's just that the more you look at it, the more it looks like a double-jointed contortionist has put a t-shirt over his jumper.

Not doublejointed. It's somebody who has put a jacket on back to front, and buried their head under the collar.

Notice that the jacket has some rather odd straight lines running across the shoulders. These could be formed by the edges of pieces of cardboard or cushions which are being used to fill it out.

The semi-concealed head at the top isn't a real head. It's probably a mop.
