This is a fruit you don't want any part of...
:::: UPDATE :::: Mankato Free Press on "Rapefruit" fiasco: "Next time, we'll just use the G"

Suffice it to say it hasn't been a good day for whoever is responsible for laying out the Mankato Free Press's food section.

In today's paper, the above-the-fold story looks to be about "Rapefruit," which is apparently "Good for every meal."

Of course, the story is really about recipes using grapefruit, but how somebody thought a C-shaped half slice of fruit looks like a G is beyond us.

As a male, I'll leave the jokes at that. After all, if Todd Akin taught us anything, it's that the less dudes say about rape, the better.

The "HOW IS THIS NEWS?" crowd is among the most awful development of the internet error. Hey, buddy. It's free. It's under a section called "Media." You didn't have to click the link. You did. Your bad. Nobody claimed it was news; they just claimed it was worth a full 95 words, and it was. Move along. 


The Mankato Free Press has a FOOD section? That promotes fruit? What's next, Tuna Noodle Hottie Dish?
