  2. There is nothing - and I mean nothing - I love more than idolatry and hero worship out of news-side people. Jacqui, you're a Pulitzer Prize winner. Have some dignity.

    "It looks like he just tried to force that last ticktock in there, Al. That's a shame."

    "Yeah, he might've been better off with a listicle run down the gutter, or something even safer, like a pie chart or a simple notebook item. Still, nobody loves to edit a Style section more than this guy. What a gunslinger."

    This was my personal favorite comment:

    Packers GM: Hey Brett. We need to save some money this coming season, so we are cutting two of our veteran offensive linemen.

    Favre: So who will we sign to replace them?

    Packers GM: Actually, no one. From now on, you'll have to make do with just three offensive linemen. But we'll keep a tight end in more often to help out.

    Favre: Umm ...

    Packers GM:

    What percentage of content on Poynter do you feel dumber after reading it? I'm going to go with 95%.
