Bad photoshop work. Look at the shadows from the sticks.

Is there a culture barrier here? I don't understand the connection between this picture and the headline. Are they just being nonsensical for effect?

Thanks!

It's typical (old fashioned) german advertiser's jargon.
A "Neger vor der Hütte" means a headline that is trying to explain the shown picture.
Don't ask me where this saying comes from and why... :)

I'll tell you where this saying comes from. It comes from some racially awkward germans.
Who can't see past their own racist history and feel this kind of thinking and speaking is
still ok.

Maybe the saying should be german in front of swastika or kraut in front of concentration camp.

Maybe then the will rethink their racist tendencies.
