Liverpool fans' Champions League banner slaughtered on Twitter
So, so many questions
Liverpool fans have descending on Paris in their thousands ahead of Saturday night's Champions League final against Real Madrid.
It is - obviously - a big deal, even for a club with such a storied European history. For some of the fans making the trip, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity, hence why some have gone to the trouble of spending their hard-earned cash to make special banners to mark the occasion.
'The longer you look at it, the worse it gets'
One banner in particular has, erm, really caught the eye in the hours approaching kick-off at the Stade de France.

The Eiffel Tower is 'hip hop'. Has anyone ever laid eyes on the Eiffel Tower before and thought, 'hmm, yeah, that's pretty hip hop'?
Has Karim Benzema(?) ever been called 'Ben Zimmy' before? Is Zimmy supposed to rhyme with City?
So many questions. So, so many questions.
The banner has been widely shared (and mocked) on Twitter
The banner has been widely shared on Twitter in the hours before kick-off. Not everyone, we're sorry to say, has been very complimentary either.
Not sure if this is supposed to be a poem or just a load of Wordle guesses put on a flag. https://t.co/ojB5vxvdi7

Why are we gassing Benzema for knocking out City when we're about to play against him? lol https://t.co/tVIm4DaoUa

So much to say, but is it really wise to big up “Ben Zimmy” when you’re literally about to play him? 😂 https://t.co/etPmZrw5Bu

I could do a 2000 Word Essay on this picture alone and I still wouldn’t have enough words to explain what’s wrong with it https://t.co/RkXrIiz7UB

You get the idea.
It's enough to wonder if this is just some ridiculous photoshop that people have wrongly assumed is genuine. Please tell us it is that. Please.
