Confusing New York Post Caesar Cover?

Okay, this one was making the rounds of my twitterfeed yesterday, but I’m not going to say whence I got it because there’s something fishy going on … anyhoo, this was purportedly the cover of the New York Post yesterday:

Outside of the obvious (to Classicists, at least) inconcinnity of the image (to which we might at that Barack is supposedly the same word as Barca, which adds to the problem), which wouldn’t be out of the question for the Post, the cover does not appear in their cover archives today … perhaps it changed for the Late City Final edition?. Anyone know if this cover is legit?

UPDATE (a couple hours later): apparently they changed their mind: New York Post Thought Better of ‘Obama As Caesar’ Cover
