Fake photo of Janet Yellen with a beard (screen grab)

Do you ever wish you'd thought a little harder before hitting send? Someone at Shareplanner might be wishing they had.

Wednesday's otherwise routine release of the Federal Open Market Committee report, under Ryan Mallory's byline, was enlivened by a picture of Fed Chair Janet Yellen with a beard.

The badly Photoshopped picture of the Fed's first female chief, and one of the most powerful women in the world, depicts her with a full beard that any young hipster would be proud of.

Shareplanner probably isn't quite so proud of it. However, the photo was still live at 12:10 p.m. Pacific time, nearly an hour after it was initially posted.
