These days “taint” isn’t the quaint word it once was. WaPo Express may have been remiss in running this er, tainted, headline.
Wrote Jessica Stephens, an editorial intern at The American Prospect,”Seriously? Nobody at the Washington Post saw a problem w/ headline?”
I don’t feel like getting fired today, so you’re going to have to check out the Urban Dictionary definition of “taint” here. As most of you filthy-minded readers already know, it concerns a certain unmentionable area on a man’s body.
Correction: We incorrectly attributed Stephens’ tweet a few moments ago. The above has been changed to reflect the correct information.
