The Day’s Best Spanish Holy Week Penitent Photo With KKK Chase(r)

The Day’s Best Spanish Holy Week Penitent Photo

It’s been too many years of griping about these photos, images of otherwise indigenous Easter rituals in Spain suddenly proliferating (like rabbits? pointy-headed rabbits? 2013 Django riff?) on US news photo galleries. So no more griping, just appreciating.

At least this one — thinking of the insta-narrative of the domestic audience again — looks like he’s being followed. Maybe even by someone in a white hijab!
