So, wait, did the Wall Street Journal think there was a rapper called Two Chairs, or did they assume that Celek had put two literal chairs inside his iPod, using some of that newfangled "wire-less" technology, but were ashamed to ask for more specifics? Because either way, that's kind of adorable.
Newspaper Corrects "Piece of Crap" to "Piece of Excrement"
Last week, the Newark Star-Ledger published a story about the hilarious "Bridgegate" scandal, in which people connected to Governor Chris Christie conspired to create traffic jams in New Jersey (because that's a place that needed help sucking more). The article mentioned that Christie's personal press secretary, Michael Drewniak, apparently doesn't think much of the Port Authority's executive director, Patrick Foye -- we're just gonna say he compared Foye to a certain bodily waste, because we're classy like that.
The Star-Ledger, however, was more specific in its description, and that led to this correction:
"We apologize for the shitty reporting."
Yep, the paper felt the need to clarify that Drewniak actually said "excrement" while another New Jersey official said "crap," but we just have to wonder who cared enough to point this out. Was it Drewniak, who didn't want to be associated with the low vocabulary of "crap" over "excrement"? Or was it Wildstein, not wanting to seem like he was stealing someone else's diss? One day, God willing, the truth shall come out.
