Please don't feed the wingnuts

In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits O hai! Just a reminder to the desk at the Miami Herald that some otherwise perfectly innocent combinations of words have secret meanings that make them -- how shall we put this? Less-than-stellar choices for 1A news heds on stories about the new president's plans to end the greater occultation place his imprint on international policy?

I wonder if the intertubes can help? Say! There's a very informative article over at the ... what's that, Wikipedians? "This article is in need of attention from an expert on the subject. WikiProject Rational Skepticism may be able to help recruit one"? Well, don't touch that dial! I expect a nice young fellow will be at your door sometime between noon and 2 p.m. to help the widow's son disambiguate all those confusing references for you! Also.

Word to the wise, Miami. Don't summon 'em if you can't tripsarecopsem send 'em back.

Not to mention that "orders up" sounds like something overheard at Waffle House.

Then again, I do prefer my world orders scattered and smothered.
