1. The Ghost Of Monica Lewinsky's Dress Haunts Bill Clinton's Official Portrait

A Pennsylvania artist who painted one of President Bill Clinton's official portraits has admitted to sneaking a subtle reference to the Monica Lewinsky scandal into his finished work. "It actually literally represents a shadow from a blue dress that I had on a mannequin, that I had there while I was painting it, but not when he was there," Nelson Shanks explained to "It is also a bit of a metaphor in that it represents a shadow on the office he held, or on him." Is this clever on Shanks' part? Well, that depends on what the definition of "is" is.
