A Man on a Zebra

Hey, wait a minute...

I must admit, my hopes were pretty high when I spotted this caption and went to load the photo.

How quickly one can be disappointed by unexpected applications of local slang on the newswires.

A man on a zebra runs away from demonstrators during a protest in Thessaloniki, northern Greece on September 10, 2011. Clashes broke out between police and demonstrators today as thousands took to the streets of Greece's second city of Thessaloniki in a mass protest against austerity measures.

Is a 'zebra' the pedestrian spot on the road?  Hah!

Yeah, apparently it is. What can I say -- I learn something new every day! :)

PS: Hope commenting works better for you. I went through and did some Johnsonesque coding on the backend over the weekend, and was finally able to nuke the problem-causing Antispam plugin without allowing thousands of spam comments through per day that I have to manually delete.
