The picture (see here), taken at a reception given by President Obama for world leaders attending the UN General Assembly, caused a huge stir because no one in Spain has ever seen Prime Minister Zapatero’s goth daughters before.

Not that there’s anything wrong with being a Goth. Really, there isn’t. But Zapatero prevents the Spanish media from running any photographs of his kids to protect their privacy.

His office called the White House to remove the image from the US State Department’s Flickr page and the West Wing withdrew it.

But it was too late!

Many in-boxes were swamped with a series of e-mails with the picture—obviously altered—depicting the two teenagers as members of the Addams Family and The Volturi.
