What's wrong with this image?

Yesterday's Columbus Dispatch featured this image prominently displayed on the front of the Insight section. Apparently images are not proofread as carefully as text....what, exactly, does "withdrawl" mean, anyway?

I believe "withdrawl" is a term used to describe the speaking patterns of southerners. My friend Julie, from Alabama, speaks "withdrawl."

My husband, a native New Yorker, speaks "withoutdrawl."

I showed this to a colleague who shall remain nameless and asked, "What's wrong with this picture?" And my wonderful colleague said, "They left out the E!"
