I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again…

I had to read this headline twice before I was sure it wasn’t some cross-posting from Gay.com:

Hung Butchers ‘Take Me Out to Ball Game’

At first glance I thought it was about some well-built meat-cutters having their sexual orientation forcibly revealed at the Skydome. But further study showed that there is some demi-celebrity named William Hung (reason enough to change your name right there to Ignatz Pickle) who couldn’t get through the classic seventh-inning stretch song at a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers without beating it to death with a stick.

One of us – the headline writer or me – needs to get out more.
