Photo of Czech President Miloš Zeman at Matějská pouť funfair goes viral

No April Fool’s joke: Czech President Miloš Zeman yesterday stopped by the popular Matějská pouť funfair at the Výstaviště Praha Exhibition Grounds, held annually every spring.

A Photoshop battle ensued on Reddit, with a clear winner emerging in user Shashakeitup’s Tales from the Crypt comic book cover:
