American Family Association: "Tyson Homosexual" bound for Olympic games

The radical clerics at the American Family Association have software that automatically substitutes the word "homosexual" for the word "gay" in wire stories published on their website.

Hilarity ensues....

The American Family Association obviously didn't foresee the problems that might arise with its strict policy to always replace the word "gay" with "homosexual" on the Web site of its Christian news outlet, OneNewsNow. The group's automated system for changing the forbidden word wound up publishing a story about a world-class sprinter named "Tyson Homosexual" who qualified this week for the Beijing Olympics.

The problem: Tyson's real last name is Gay. Therefore, OneNewsNow's reliable software changed the Associated Press story about Tyson Gay's amazing Olympic qualifying trial to read this way:

Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.

His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn't count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind. Here's what does matter: Homosexual qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he's certainly someone to watch in Beijing.

"It means a lot to me," the 25-year-old Homosexual said. "I'm glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me." [WaPo]

Ok, that nearly sent an ice cream cone into the sinuses.

Sounds like a newspaper article about the winding-down of a three-day circuit party in the Pines.

Wonderful.

Also, the plane that dropped the first atomic bomb? The Enola Homosexual

One of the more florid writers of the last half century? Homosexual Talese.

re: Uncle Kvetch's comment "Sounds like a newspaper article about the winding-down of a three-day circuit party in the Pines.": Or Bohemian Grove perhaps.

"The budget is back in the African American" is just an urban legend, right? It's heartwarming to see an equally idiotic global-search-and-replace story that's verifiably true.
