My faith in journalism has been restored

Did anyone else see the front page of the Post yesterday? No?  Well in case you didn’t see it, here’s what you missed:

(The picture is actually from the Web site, b/c unfortunately it didn't occur to me to save the image yesterday. And I'll forever be kicking myself for that!)

Okay, do you all see what that says? It says pussy whipped!

PUSSY WHIPPED!

Right there, on the front page of the paper.  Can I even tell you how excited I was to see that?  To know that not ALL newspaper editors are instituting the “no pun, no fun, just the facts” policy that mine did?  To know that there are still creative people out there who really want to get a rise out of people AND use a sexual ineundo on the front page of the paper–and who can get away with it?!  To know that irreverent headlines live on?!

Let’s just say that my inner-nerd was having one of the best days ever yesterday.
