Pubic office



  • First line of http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/tamcam/archive/2008/11/04/chevy-chase-and-his-presidential-memories.aspx says:

    "Chevy Chase didn't want Gerald Ford to be elected. In 1976 when he began portraying the stumbling, bumbling president on Saturday Night Live, Ford's public face and political fate was sealed."

    However, I was tipped off about this interesting article at news.google.com, whose preview of this article says:

    "Chevy Chase didn't want Gerald Ford to be elected. In 1976 when he began portraying the stumbling, bumbling president on Saturday Night Live, Ford's pubic face and political fate was sealed."

    FAIL!  I guess it isn't an automatic article sniffer that generates captions for the front page of google.  Or if it was an auto-captionizing program, the original entry must've had the typo but has since been corrected.

    I guess that's one roundabout way to call someone a dickhead. :)



  • TRWTF is the implicit post hoc fallacy - Chevy Chase did no more damage to Ford's public image than Ford had already done. Just as Palin didn't become a national joke thanks to Tina Fey - she was already a national joke way before Fey's portrayal on SNL.

    She gets mega-kudos for going on SNL anyway and basically letting them skewer her to her face, though.



  • His pubic face was sealed?  What does that mean?  His vagina was sewn shut?

    Simple explanation:

    1. Writer on newsweek makes typo
    2. Google finds new article
    3. Writer fixes typo
    4. ???
    5. Profit
