Wall Street Journal Makes Steve Jobs Say Boo

Apple CEO Steve Jobs speaks during a special event in San Francisco this week. The appearance was his first since undergoing liver transplant surgery.

Did you know that Steve Jobs "appeared thin and spoke with a scratchy voice" on his return to the stage at Apple's product launch party this week?

In case you didn't, the Wall Street Journal was kind enough to provide some interesting visuals to accompany its print story about the Apple front man's return following liver transplant surgery.

The financial paper ran an ad featuring a skeleton for a Halloween store alongside its story about Jobs speaking at the Apple event. Jobs' health has long been a topic of discussion and his up again, down again weight has sent Apple's stock tumbling in the past.

Was the paper's move simply bad judgment or a poor attempt at humor? Tell us what you think.
