Irish priest in gay porn probe should have followed PowerPoint best practices

Parents in Northern Ireland parish shown pics of naked men at First Communion meeting

By  

If porn pictures do show up in your presentation, try to troubleshoot the problem before, say, the 16th naked image appears on the screen. Failing that, employ a joke ("Well, I guess now everyone knows what I did on my vacation, ha ha.") or solemnly proclaim that evil is among us and ask everyone to remain calm. Then begin speaking in tongues.

3. Don't read verbatim the text on a PowerPoint slide or merely describe an image being shown. "That's a totally naked man" adds no real informational value to the presentation. Tell us something about the naked man we don't know just from looking at his picture. Maybe he loves soccer, maybe he's a Freemason. Make him more than just another naked man who showed up mysteriously in your presentation. Otherwise the audience will end up in "PowerPoint Hell."
