Is There a Copy Editor in the House?

August 19, 2008

Being a man of larger proportions, I appreciate it when people of considerable size and girth overcome their physical limitations and rise up to greatness.

Imagine the smile it brought to my face this morning when I was perusing the Indianapolis Star website and saw this headline right here.

I'm guessing the rewards snacks after the game were cupcakes. Lots and lots of cupcakes. And after that, snu-snu. Lots and lots of snu-snu.

And how funny would it have been if the other mascot was something other than Titans...although Titans is pretty funny. Are there any Indianapolis-based teams with "Pelvis" for a mascot name? Too bad they weren't playing Frankfort High School, home of the Hot Dogs. Hilarity would have ensued...further.

I suggest a rewrite for the headline: "Husky girls crush stereotypes, score often".

Again, Indiana, I'm looking out for you. You're welcome.

EDIT: Sorry, all. I had to dash off this morning to hang with my friend Joe during a two and a half hour meeting, thus leaving this post only partially finished. I mistakenly pushed "publish" instead of save. I apologize for any inconveniences or complete and total lack of hilarity (as opposed to the simple lack of hilarity that I usually bring you). Also, I misspelled "snu-snu". Send your complaints along to Wizard Cat.

Dear Wizard Cat:
Since I find nothing wrong with this post but am using this as a cheap attempt to stalk you, may I please have my autographed photo of you now? My cats (The Mighty Bud E Phat and Lioness Elsa) are true Wizard Cat groupies and short of them leaving me in search of the Wonderful Land of Wizard-Oz to see you, this is my only option.

What is snoo-snoo?

Can I have a cupcake?

Having Wizard Cat run your complaint department is a bit unfair. I scared to complain about anything. I don't want to be turned into a newt. Is there some less powerful being that will review our complaints?

@ slinger: I couldn't decide between the pink and the yellow. I figured it was slightly less offensive in pink.

@ lisa's chest: You know Wizard Cat is a perv, right? Just to give you a head's up.

@ Gwen: Snu-snu (when spelled correctly...*ahem*...sorry) is the punishment levied by the femputer on the Amazonian planet from Futurama. All males captured on the planet were sentenced to death by snu-snu, and all of the men died of broken pelvises. To quote, "The spirit is weak, but the flesh is spongy".

@ Zibbs: I prefer to get all pretenses of politeness out of the way and go straight for "Tubs of Shit".

@ chemgeek: WC scoffs in your general direction and would like me to remind you that he weighs far more than a duck. In fact, after the "trial", he ate the duck. File that with Aflac, bitch (he says).

I know about 4 or 5 guys who would love to have that shirt. Meaning I have about 4 or 5 openings in my Friend Roster, due to creepiness.

@ McGone: Is there an application we have to fill out?
