The Forger Confesses! UPDATED

A couple of years ago, when I was in the US, my good buddy Dave Otto snapped a picture of me wearing a oversized cowboy hat after we had spent the day at a riverside concert.
Later, Dave photoshopped in a swastika eagle thing in the background, and when I left, he presented me with a nice print out of his “work,” as a personal joke.
I had a good laugh, and threw Dave’s faked pic in along with all my other pictures. Sadly, later on when I got divorced, my ex-spouse got hold of my collection of pics, scanned that fake one and put it online . . . and as a result, it still circulates today on the Internet.
Knowing that it was a joke, I have always ignored it, but Dave’s recent post on Facebook is maybe worth a peek for those who have a bizarre interest in this silly little episode.

UPDATE:  While having a clean out, I found the original picture before it was photoshopped:

I saw it on the internet, so it must be true!

More seriously, you are right to refute this canard. It's a damaging picture, but Dave Cameron, Ed Milliband or even Nick Clegg could appear in a similarly compromising shot to-morrow with some help from Photoshop!
