Thanks to East Village Idiot, we have pictures of a faux pas at USA Today‘s 25th anniversary party at Gotham Hall on Monday night. The room was decorated with six-foot-tall blow ups of historic USA Today covers, including the one above.

Can’t make it out? Click after the jump for a look at the original cover.

Yes, nothing shouts PAR-TAY like September 11 and the massacre of thousands of innocent people. Especially smack in the middle of New York City. Y’know?

UPDATE: USA Today informs us that the front pages exhibited at the Gotham Hall event were part of a touring exhibit called “25 Years of USA Today.” They are currently being displayed in Chicago and will be back in New York for Advertising Week.
