The richest girl in town.
From the Washington Post:
Thursday, December 3, 2009

A Nov. 26 article in the District edition of Local Living incorrectly said a Public Enemy song declared 9/11 a joke. The song refers to 911, the emergency phone number.

See, and if someone said, "Why do Black people hate firemen?" I would answer "All the years of exclusion and racist harassment in every major urban fire department in the country," and not even know they thought that's what PE meant.

It's very reminiscent of "Who's On First?"

It's 9-1-1.
People; mothers, the police rumour goes, and I've seen it happen with an adult male, panic and then they can't find the "Eleven" button, cause themselves to delay, and so the police rumour goes, babies have died.

So, all the cop cars had to change their paint so it reads 9-1-1.

As for songs being misheard, heck, I thought that was half the point of the game of listening to music on the radio.

I guess this might be excused if the Post is now using 18 year old copy editors. Which I wouldn't put past them.

To be using 18yo copy editors, they would have to be using copy editors. Hadn't you hear about the downsizing of nonessential personnel?
