Jeremy Barr, creator of the Local People With Their Arms Crossed Tumblr, tells Romenesko readers how he came up with this idea:
I’ve always enjoyed scrolling through the front pages section on the Newseum’s website — I think it’s fascinating. A few weeks ago, I was looking for articles that I could use for a different Tumblr when I started to notice a few of these poses. I checked back the next day, and noticed a few more. It’s an amazing, ridiculous pose, so I thought it would be fun to compile them.
