      Heard about this photo in a discussion group in Brasil.

      This picture is almost as funny as the one I accidentally took of the inside of my jeans pocket.

      I know about the 404 pages, and I know about Yahoo, but wow...that's not even mildly amusing to me.

      This is fake. Provably photoshopped.

      Consider: www.flickr.com/photos/8067131@N05/481666258/

      Look at the perspective lines. In order to match the bottom perspective on both of the 4's, it has to cut through the bottom of the 0.

      Even then, they do not quite match up with the perspective of the backboards.

      You can replicate this on the original photo.

      I beg to differ brianatx.. (btw, where are YOUR pictures?)

      Consider : www.flickr.com/photos/kaz/124477481/in/set-72157594316295...

      Also consider the EXIF data (if you know what that is....)
      If it had been modified in photoshop or something, then the software info in the EXIF data would read the software's name. In this case, this photo has not been modified.

      But thanks anyway Columbo, that's 15 mintues you won't be getting back...

      Actually, brianatx, it's just good typography. Curved letters and numbers should always sit slightly below the baseline of their straight counterparts, in order to be optically aligned. You'll notice that even a program as unsophisticated as Microsoft Word does this automatically.

      You should totally submit this to the Consumerist flickr pool.

      Very well, I retract. I'll update my listing.

      I do have a couple of comments:

      1) A piece of data in a file is just a piece of data. Are you telling me, Dunbone, that if Photoshop can alter EXIF data that another program can't?

      2) Zoomed out photos aren't helpful. So offering that as evidence isn't helpful either.

      I did see a second photo in this collection that had it, though I haven't seen another photo from a secondary source that shows it.

      brianatx, here's a secondary source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT&T_Park

      I took some photos at AT&T park last year and you can see the Yahoo! ad by the 404 there, too.

      While we're on the subject, who doesn't love the 420 sign in Fenway Park. Gives me a giggle every time...
