She asked for an Ed Sheeran picture. He photoshopped it. She didn't notice... and then she framed it.

You know you’ve made it as a popular, demographic-spanning singer-songwriter when technology-impaired moms and Ur-Moms (grandmas) are asking their children for internet pictures of you so they can frame them and place them in their homes.
