Houston Station Publishes Fake Photo From 'Jurassic Park' To Illustrate Real Floods



Sure, the Memorial Day floods that have devastated much of Texas are bad, but they aren't "nature finds a way" bad. In their quest for pageviews, Houston news station KHOU put up a gallery of viewer-submitted photos of this past weekend's heavy rains and subsequent deluge. One viewer decided to have a little fun with the station's call for user-generated content by sneaking in a photo from the original Jurassic Park into their online gallery. Everyone point and laugh and then contemplate the dangers of social media as a breaking news-gathering source.

Here's the scene in case you don't know what we are talking about.
