Delta’s tweet celebrating the USA’s 2‑1 win over Ghana in the World Cup today consists of two beautiful images. Unfortunately for the person who posted it, the lovely giraffe is nowhere to be found in Ghana. (Maybe they have one or two in a zoo?)

Why didn’t Delta just use a photo of that thing that obviously represents Ghana? You know, that thing.
