Oops: Rolling Stone Gets Constitution Tattoo Wrong

(Newser) – Oops: Julia Louis-Dreyfus appears nude with the preamble to the US Constitution inked on her back for the cover of the latest Rolling Stone—but with one big mistake: There's a large John Hancock just above her rear. Hancock, however, put the most famous signature in American history on the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution, the AP notes.

The Veep star tweeted that she was in a Rob Ford-style "drunken stupor" at the time—and blamed the mistake on the character who serves as her bumbling director of communications on the HBO show. A Rolling Stone spokeswoman, meanwhile, claimed that the Declaration of Independence had been inked on the other side of her body but the signatures wouldn't fit. "Hopefully, for Louis-Dreyfus’ sake, the 'tattoo' isn’t permanent"—and the staffer responsible has learned a history lesson, quips Paul Whitefield at the Los Angeles Times.
