    Given the lede, that's hilarious. As if the CDC would issue a report about men who have sex with the author. The very idea makes me laugh heartily.

    "Last month, the Centers for Disease Control released new figures charting the HIV epidemic among black, gay men in D.C. The figures are grim: One in three black men who have sex with me in the District is HIV-positive, and infections among young black men are higher than any other group."

    A blogger actually wrote a correction? Now that's news.

    Forget one letter, and it completely changes everything.

    God bless the English language.

    Just saw this move. It's not nearly as good, but it gave me the chuckles, nonetheless:

    Pursurant to this topic, Green Party candidate for Governor of Illinois Rich Whitney is somewhat miffed at a small misspelling of his name that will be on voting machines in the state.
    He's listed as "Rich Whitey."

    I really want to believe that was an honest mistake that wasn't caught.
