Special Kind of Genius

I was just about finished with a coloring piece for a friend on deviantART, but I got a little sidetracked by a picture that greeted me when I logged onto the site.

Remember how you felt the day you received your first debit / credit card?  The first inkling of a notion that you were finally on your way to some financial independence.  Finally, you can afford a few extras in your life, whatever they may be.  In that moment of joy and excitement, you want to show EVERYONE your new found prosperity and....

Yeah, the rest of us don't generally post a picture of our new card online for all the world to see.  That takes a special kind of genius.


I did however, have the common courtesy to drop them a note, pointing out the potential failure in their...ummm...moment of triumph.  But not before popping a screenshot...and blurring out all of the particulars to spare the individual any further embarrassment and/or financial burden.  The original photo has since been removed from the site.
