Precarious Product Placement

The Reuters story, Botswana beauty pageant crowns Miss HIV, features an interesting choice of ads to accompany it...


Oops...

Update: In case you can't imagine that there would might be someone who could take offense at the Reuters page; Rightwingsparkle (who found it via Beautiful Atrocities) points out this article about a lady who took offense at seeing a police officer eat a banana.
