A person who crosses the picket line is called a "scab".

    Scabs are associated with ugly things. Picture:

    Now, without peeking or otherwise Googling, can you tell me whether the scab shown is Photoshop, a real disease or theatrical make up?

    If you want to pick THAT type out of a crowd, just look for the festering scabs on their elbows.

    Theater make-up but based on a real disease.

    There are tons of tutorials on how to do that exact thing because it looks gross as hell.

    Yup. You're right on point. There's also a way to fake the picture, using a lotus plant Photoshopped onto a person's shoulder.

    It took a while for me to be able to look at that picture without feeling itchy all over. My logic says "not real" and my irrational side is "Oh, no! What If I get that!?" And it looks painful.

    I've seen the lotus plant photoshops and they are ok for a quick scare but the real 'artistes' are going to go with the theater makeup because then you don't have to worry about getting the light and shadow just right for the pic and you can youtube the ugly 'live' for added horror.

    The real thing is just a world of pain but at the same time I can't help but wonder what it would look like if someone went for a power high-five with someone who had that on their hand. It would be like smushing one of those greenbean woodticks with skin flying everywhere.
