Wonder what you would find if you frisked the belongings of a deceased car dealership owner on the East Coast?

Answer: A photograph that could have changed history.

Haha, are we really that surprised? I’m not. TMZ reports:

We believe the photo was taken in the mid-1950s. It shows two naked women jumping off the boat and two more naked women sunning on the top deck. Just below the top deck — a man appearing to be John F. Kennedy is lying on a deck, sunning himself.

TMZ had multiple experts examine the photo — all say there is no evidence the picture was Photoshopped. The original print — which is creased — was scanned and examined for evidence of inconsistent lighting, photo composition and other forms of manipulation. The experts all concluded the photo appears authentic.

Here’s the real sleazy/dirt-bag  part about this photograph:

There are numerous articles and books on President John F. Kennedy which mention a 2-week, Mediterranean boating trip that JFK — then a Senator — took in August, 1956, with his brother Ted Kennedy and Senator George Smathers. The trio reportedly entertained a number of women on the yacht. Jackie Kennedy was pregnant at the time and was rushed to the hospital while JFK was on the boat. Doctors performed an emergency C-section, but the infant was stillborn.

Tisk, tisk, tisk… In the words of someone who commented on this story: This image would make a nice Kennedy commemorative plate or coin.

In order to keep my blog viewer friendly I decided to blur out certain ‘areas’ of the photograph. If you would like to view the original photograph, click here.

Side-Note: How come I’m never invited to these type of yacht parties!? Haha.

*UPDATE* – December 28, 2009

The Smoking Gun reports the image was a fake.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the couple that crashed President Obama’s first state dinner?

Answer: They’re shopping their story.

You got to love America… People will do anything to get fame:

The couple who crashed President Barack Obama’s first state dinner are peddling their story to broadcast networks for hundreds of thousands of dollars, a television executive says.

The executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the network does not publicly discuss bookings, told The Associated Press that representatives for Michaele and Tareq Salahi contacted networks to urge them to “get their bids in” for an interview. The executive said the Virginia couple was looking for a payment in the mid-six figures range.

Network news divisions say they don’t pay for interviews. But for eagerly sought interviews in the past, they have offered to pay for access to exclusive material, such as pictures or videos from their subjects.

Michaele Salahis is a reality TV hopeful trying to get on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Her and her husband’s success in getting into the state dinner Tuesday without an invitation embarrassed the White House and Secret Service.

Unbelievable. I realize this couple has crashed multiple parties before (including the Oscars), but this stunt was an unintelligent decision. If the Secret Service was actually doing their jobs, they have weapons and (I assume) they take a breach in security pretty seriously.

Crazyness. What’s next!? Teach your kids to lie, build a homemade air balloon out of tinfoil, and alert the press that your son might be inside of it while it soars over the state of Colorado? Wait a minute…

*UPDATE 1*

Here’s a video of the couple being announced at the state dinner (if you care enough to watch it):

*UPDATE 2*

You have got to be kidding me:

The chick who famously sneaked her way into a White House party last week had some prior experience in the field — FedEx field … as in the home of the Washington Redskins.

TMZ has obtained photos of Michaele Salahi posing as a Redskins cheerleader during a halftime event in 2005.

Salahi had told people she was a member of the squad back in the ’90s, but team officials have no record proving her claim.

However, these photos make it clear she was successful at passing herself off as one — because the event she crashed was to honor Redskins cheerleader alumni.

Okay! Just give her the dang reality television show, because this is just getting a little bit ridiculous. Haha.
