Oops: Swedish Politician Posts Too-Revealing Image
The offending image (with the naughty bits blocked).   (Lars Ohly)

In other countries, this kind of stuff happens by accident: A Swedish politician who wanted to show his new tattoo to followers on Instagram accidentally revealed far more than he intended. Lars Ohly, former leader of Sweden's Left Party, posted a picture of the English soccer club Liverpool's liver bird tattooed on his leg. What he failed to notice was that his genitals were visible in the background. Ohly quickly removed the picture but couldn't stop the avalanche of comments in social media. He apologized and promised to be more careful in the future. (More Lars Ohly stories.)
