Newspaper Literally Stops the Presses After Noticing Naughty Lesbian Photo in Paper
Somebody from The Cincinnati Enquirer last week got to live out one of my absolute biggest fantasies ever when they ran out of the newsroom down the hall shrieking “Stop the presses!”
And it was all thanks to a naughty, naughty lesbian with a naughty, naughty sign about the naughty, naughty thing she likes to do to the woman standing next to her.
Several thousand subscribers still got printed editions with the naughty, naughty photo that had already gone out to be delivered, which prompted the Enquirer to issue an apology. Editor Carolyn Washburn said, “I am working this morning to understand why this photo was chosen in the first place and why it was not caught sooner.”
You and me both, sister!
We’re torn on this one. On one hand, it’s always funny on a juvenile level to see dirty words show up in unlikely places. On the other hand, anyone who has ever marched in a protest knows the particular strain of frustration that comes with someone hijacking your cause with a ridiculous sign that steers all the attention squarely onto their shoulders and away from the actual point you marched in the first place.
(Editor’s note: You can never go wrong in an equality march with a sign reading, “I don’t swim in your toilet. Don’t piss on my civil rights!”)
