UPDATE: So yeah, this is a fake. Getting shot in the head without being on a boat with five naked chicks before you die is bad after all.
In a photograph dated in the summer of 1956, John F. Kenndy is shown on a boat in the Mediterranean with five naked women. Getting your head blown off in a motorcade doesn’t seem so bad now. TMZ reports:
TMZ had multiple experts examine the photo — all say there is no evidence the picture was Photoshopped. The original print — which is creased — was scanned and examined for evidence of inconsistent lighting, photo composition and other forms of manipulation. The experts all concluded the photo appears authentic. Professor Jeff Sedlik, a forensic photo expert, says the print appears to be authentic. Sedlik says the photo is printed on paper consistent with what was used in the 1950s. The emulsion on the surface of the print has numerous cracks — the result of aging and handling. There are numerous articles and books on President John F. Kennedy which mention a 2-week, Mediterranean boating trip that JFK — then a Senator — took in August, 1956, with his brother Ted Kennedy and Senator George Smathers. The trio reportedly entertained a number of women on the yacht. Jackie Kennedy was pregnant at the time and was rushed to the hospital while JFK was on the boat. Doctors performed an emergency C-section, but the infant was stillborn.
Celebrities and politicians were protected back in the day (James Dean allegedly liked little boys, Cary Grant allegedly had a sexual affair with his stepson, Lucille Ball broke into show business as a prostitute, and police believe that Bette Davis killed her husband although a jury, who six of them later admitted they were ardent fans, found her innocent), so it’s not hard to believe this picture was never released to the press. Although if I were JFK, that would piss me off. If I was in this picture, I would send it out as my Christmas card with Morgan Freeman doing some sort of narration when it was opened.
