Not fair, Bloomberg, not fair!

So this headline crosses my radar: "Sexy Lempicka Is Finally Hot in Paris; Political Satire Is Real." Sex and satire in the same headline? That's what I call foreplay!

Then, in the first paragraph, they drop this line about Lempicka: "...her sumptuous parties and her love affairs -- not necessarily with men."

Holy toledo, lesbian satire? My fingertips are sweating and slipping off the keyboard. But then...THEN I understand what the semicolon was doing in the headline!

The article switches gears entirely, to talk about a satirical play centering around a suntan lotion company. It was all a ruse to get me to click the headline link. Damn you, Bloomberg!

Satire pervades the web, seeping into mailboxes and mainstream news like a spilled cup of coffee. It stains and it won't go away.
