As this photo made me realize that.

Tweet what I'd said-go viral with it.

just look at the largest kid, the one with glasses. It is a photoshop, but a very funny (and true) photoshop.

someone posted the correct picture, and I noticed the kid with the glasses- his shirt was different between the pics. So, no great detective work on my part- afraid I can't impart any PS tricks.

I've been a graphic artist for 30 years, so I'm used to seeing people's typos. When I see something that doesn't make sense (the "R" isn't obvious enough) my mind immediately tries to fix it. So, I still see Money.

I didn't read the squiggle on his wife's T-shirt as an "R" or realize they were trying to spell the family name. It certainly is a new kind of Freudian slip!

Thanks for cluing this dense one in.

Studies have shown that as long as the first and last letters are correct, you can jumble the order of letters in a word all you want, and most of the time everyone will still know what you're saying.

I hereby dub the candidate Mitt Rmoney.

62. R Money: His 'hood name?
Sun Feb 5, 2012, 11:37 AM
Feb 2012

You know, that hood where the average price of a "crib" is $20 million and is gated with 24 hour security. Mitt the gansta. Except he doesn't steal with a gun, he steals with a briefcase. Maybe R Money should have a plan to use some of this "money" to improve our educational system so these kids can spell!!
