Heat Stroke!

I've heard of beating the heat, but the heat beating itself? I found this little gem in the Friday-Monday edition of last week's USA Today. It looks to me like either the Sun has been hitting the bong or it's about to rub out a coronal mass ejection. It's always fun to see what kind of perverse innuendo a graphic designer can slip into his/her work, but I'm thinking that the person behind this particular image might just be nuts. He's going to get sacked. 

And what's with this tendency that artists have to draw the Sun wearing sunglasses? Why would the Sun need sunglasses? What light source is the Sun trying to block its eyes from? And don't go telling me that the Sun's future is so bright, it just has to wear shades.
