Dewey defeats ghghghgh

And the Ancient & Mystic Order of the Dummy Type welcomes another initiate into its secretive fraternal ranks! Let's all buy a virtual round for the subs at the Times & Citizen and bedfordtoday. (You have to admit that, as question heds go, "Did you see naked man in Bedford?" has a lot to say for it.)

The carrier pigeon from Bedfordshire was late today, so we're grateful to alert readers* across the water who shared this electronically.** In the Big Picture department: It matters not how pure your soul, how good your beer,*** or how urgent your other tasks. Do not turn your back on dummy type. Ever. Not for a moment. You're asking for toothmarks in the sirloin and a permanent spot in the Com3210 Hall of Fame.

* Thanks to Stan and Rich.
** Eventually we'll have to explain to the tenure committee why International Clearinghouse for Pied Heds and Dummy Type counts as "scholarship," rather than "service."

*** In the "who knew?" department: Your Editor's favorite bitter is from Bedford! The stuff you learn from the Intertubes.

Bonus points for colliding with the text of the article in a way that would have been physically impossible back in the day.

Remember, kids: Brush after eating, rotate your tires, and add 6 points per line to the hed frame to avoid unsightly overlap!

The second word is so malformed, it looks like a grunt of pain.
