Ha! NY Post URL says ‘no more penis jokes’; Weiner headline says otherwise

The url for the @nypost‘s “Weiner’s running for erection” story contains the words “no more penis jokes”. So, is today’s headline the end?

Say it ain’t so!

The New York Post is reporting that Anthony Weiner could announce his bid for NYC mayor as early as next week. Take a close look at the article’s URL:


Gasp! No more … penis jokes? It’s like we don’t even know you anymore, New York Post!

But fear not, Post fans. Breathe a sigh of relief and feast your eyes on the print edition. Because “Seriously, Weiner to seek erection.”

The online version of the article still includes “no more penis jokes” in the URL, but the headline and text? All. Penis. Jokes.
