This Is Just Too Weird

The homophobic American Family Association is made up of really warped people. This is just too funny. Apparently, these folks have invented some tricky computer thing to replace the word "gay" with "homosexual" in all AP news stories that they post.

They made an embarrassing slip on this run. In stories about Olympic hopeful Tyson Gay, they replaced his last name. Yup. Check it:

Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials

Tyson Homosexual easily won his semifinal for the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials and seemed to save something for the final later Sunday.

His wind-aided 9.85 seconds was a fairly cut-and-dry performance compared to what happened a day earlier. On Saturday, Homosexual misjudged the finish in his opening heat and had to scramble to finish fourth, then in his quarterfinal a couple of hours later, ran 9.77 to break the American record that had stood since 1999.

They fixed it now, but they are still having trouble getting all the references! H/T DAIO.
