My Day Is Complete

Words can not express the joy I am experiencing right now

Some far-right sites that subscribe to the Associated Press feed, for example, will use auto-correct to change “Democratic Party” to “Democrat Party.” This, of course, is because they have the temperament of children.

But the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow website takes the phenomenon one step further with its AP articles. The far-right fundamentalist group replaces the word “gay” in the articles with the word “homosexual.” I’m not entirely sure why, but it seems to make the AFA happy. The group is, after all, pretty far out there.

The problem, of course, is that “gay” does not always mean what the AFA wants it to mean. My friend Kyle reported this morning that sprinter Tyson Gay won the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials over the weekend. The AFA ran the story, but only after the auto-correct had “fixed” the article.

Win!

    This is totally awesome, a great article about an NBA draft day trade:

    Wolves trade Mayo to Memphis for Love
    JON KRAWCZYNSKI – 6/27/2008 7:06:51 AMBookmark and Share

    Minnesota Timberwolves fans went to bed wondering how O.J. Mayo would fit in with their guard-heavy team.

    Memphis Grizzlies backers hit the hay hoping that Kevin Love would open things up for Rudy Homosexual in the frontcourt.

    That’s right kids, there’s Homosexual Love in Memphis! And it’s not hiding in the backcourt, nope, it’s in the frontcourt!!

    Certainly puts a special spin on “The Flintstones” doesn’t it?

    Hmmm…it always did seem to me that Fred and Barney were just a little TOO tight with each other. I can just hear old Fred bellowing out “YABBA-DABBA-DOO!” as his Paleolithic prick does some big-time archaeological digging in Rubble’s rear cavity.

    Think “Bonehenge”…

    I believe that’s called a “Software FAIL.”

    On a related note, why does the AP allow this? I’m not sure of the AP’s specific terms of use, but I would have just assumed subscribers were allowed to edit for length but not for specific content. Otherwise, what stops someone from completely changing the story while keeping the AP byline?

    You joke, but this is exactly what the RWNM was trying to express when they put that tune to a video of John Edwards brushing his hair.

    It goes much, heh, deeper than that. Think of all meetings of that secret male-only lodge that Fred & Barney went to. There were at least a hundred guys there. This goes beyond the homosexual agenda and into the realm of a full conspiracy!

    Oh, yeah…with all those horned-helmets, too. And just WHERE were the “woman-folk” of Bedrock while all this secretive and fetish-ishtic “male-bonding” was going on? hmmm…

    Now look, here’s the other thing OneNewsNow does…

    If they notice that sites they don’t like (like this one, or mine) are linking to them on a regular basis, rather than welcome the traffic like people who are confident in their beliefs, they automatically redirect the links to a “Good Person Test” which is rigged to show you what a bad person you are, and how you’re going to hell unless you accept Jesus.

    It’s so phenomenally childish…

    Anyway, I wrote about the Rudy Homosexual thing the other day: http://breaktheterror.wordpres.....omosexual/

    Fun!
