There may be consequences to pay when I get home. First I leave Y for what feels like FOREVER — I’m even missing med school prom — and then I schedule a post while I’m away poking fun at him? Go ahead and give me the worst wife ever award.
But this question needed to be answered: what does Y have in common with the Palin supporters of the world?
You’ve probably heard about Palin’s latest gaffe* involving messing up the story of Paul Revere. The Daily Show reported that Palin supporters have been flocking to Wikipedia to try to change the story of Paul Revere to reflect Palin’s version. So much so, that Wikipedia had to lock the page.
That story sounds familiar, right?
*I learn so much while doing research for this little blog. While investigating how to spell the word “gaffe”, my first guess was “gaff”. Apparently, a gaff is a pair of underwear that cross dressers wear to, um, tuck away certain parts of their body that they want to hide. If you want to get specific: “Our uniquely styled gaff is the perfect panty for men who want to hide their masculine bulge.” Seriously. Google it.
(I can’t wait to find out what kind of new readers I get from pasting that phrase. Welcome all gaff-wearers! And on that note, have a great weekend!)
