It takes a visionary to visit a tourist trap where everyone takes the same cookie-cutter photo and walk away with a shot that’s fresh and provocative.
It takes a sexist visionary, but who are we to point fingers after the Jessica Simpson “waxual harassment” debacle?
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the tourist flock here pretends to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa all day long (notice the people appearing to do tai chi). Brad caught his naughty friend, Chris, holding up a stranger’s miniskirt as she holds up the tower.
Get someone to hold up Chris’ rear end, and you have a brilliant spin-off of this classic Eugene Mirman museum pose.
For the record, we’re not sure if that is a miniskirt or a pair of microshorts. Any fashion experts in Tacky Tourist Nation who can help us out on this one?
Check out these other classic photo-ops at Pisa:

NOTE TO OUR VALUED FEMINIST READERS: Tacky Tourist Photos does not endorse imaginary sexual harassment in any form, but we do take our commitment to document these incidents very seriously. For the sake of equal exposure, if you know of any egregious tourist poses happening at Michelangelo’s David statue, please keep us in the loop!
