There Was a Dick Pic on WFAA's Homepage This Morning (NSFW)

WFAA "share" is a community engagement tool that allows users of the ABC affiliate's website to upload their photos and videos to potentially be featured on an image carousel on the station's homepage. Typically it features things like cute pictures of dogs and kids in Cowboys gear or user photos from a significant news event.

Tuesday morning, right there on WFAA's front page, just above Dale Hansen's frowning mug, it featured a big, hairy dick.

We called WFAA's switchboard for comment.

"Oh yes we heard about it," we were told, "appreciate you calling."
