Someone posted on Digg a link to a class photo showing two girls kissing in front of their classmates and teacher. The story (You Gotta Love Japanese Class Photos: The two girls in the front prove how awesome Japan is. Thank you Japan, thank you.) then got to the front page of Digg, gets digged more than 2300 times and now has more than 230 comments!
The photo is not from a school in Japan but Singapore's very own Anderson Junior College! It was taken in 2004 and it even made the local news back then. I found the following story by The New Paper on a forum. From talkgeek2me.com forums:
In a rash moment, these two girls from Anderson Junior College (AJC) locked lips for the camera - all for a wacky class photo.
They pulled off the joke under the noses of their form tutor and their classmates, when posing for an informal memento at the annual photo-taking session.
Now, the former Year One Science students say they did not mean it and are sorry for what they did.
However, it has caused unnecessary embarrassment to the college, their tutor and their parents...
AJC's principal of five years, Mr Tan Tiek Kwee, told The Y Scene that the photo of the kiss was not a result of some fancy digital trick, as some suspected at first.
It was just a result of a 'silly prank', he said.
The 'fun' pose, captured by a photographer from AJC's Photographic Society, was for the class to keep.
As the photographer said 'One, two, three', the girls kissed on the count of three.
