And when he thinks about Jack, he touches himself.

Just another little hint to political candidates that I think I've mentioned more than once.

I know it doesn't feel right or might not be comfortable. When posing for a photograph, often the inclination is to clasp your hands together in front of you. However, like many other urges, you should deprive yourself. If you don't, the result is what you see above. A pose that's been termed by Campaign and Elections Magazine as "the fig leaf" photo.

And the fig leaf pose doesn't look good. In fact, it looks downright silly.

So when there's a camera in front of you, and you get that familiar urge, just deny it, and put your hands at your sides. It might not feel natural, but it makes for a better looking photo.

And Quinten, stop that before you go blind.

How old is Jack Billion? Did his campaign provide this photo?

PP: What a public service! Occasionally I think your nuggets of wisdom regarding how to have a successful campaign/sign/logo/photo opp appear to be common sense info ... but this is yet another example of what NOT to do that needs to be told time and time again. I wish more people could restrain from "touching themselves" during these grip and grin-type photos -- which look like people are ashamed of their genitals. Let it all hang out, I say. Keep on preaching ...

Maybe he looked down and saw a winkle-dribble near the fly. In which case, the rule is don't try to be demure. Assume an assertive, take-charge attitude and do a Michael Jackson.

You know, since his eyes are closed, maybe he's thinking about Tom Hansen! P.S. I think Billion's age is close to a billion.
