Technically it could if they had put ROTFL, but let’s not go there shall we.
“The Press Gazette, which called it possibly the “worst caption fail of all time,” said that there was an internal investigation taking place at the paper.” [Huffington Post]
The paper has since apologised for the faux pas.
