I Am Joe's Lamestream Media

The Fake AP Stylebook Twitter feed provides, er... "helpful" guidelines for you New Media Journos out there. Here's a couple to prime the pump for you Pulitzer-winning wannabes:

  • The correct plural forms are as follows: surgeons general, brothers-in-law, Spiders-Man.
  • Real estate listings should not describe a building as a "murder house." Be specific: ax murder house, chainsaw murder house.
  • "Ophthalmologist" has an 'h' in it. A handy mnemonic for this is that the 'h' stands for, "Huh! There's a 'h' in 'ophthalmologist'!"

"The correct plural of ocelot is oceshitload. Ocefuckton is vulgar and should be avoided."

Thanks for the new follow...!
