Life imitates Com3210

No sooner do you get done lecturing about the Teemortal Sin of making hed puns on athletes' (or anyone's) names than someone goes and provides a fresh illustration.

So ... no. I don't get "harassed" out of "Harris-ed" (partly because of the hyphen), and I can't see defeat as something you could be harassed into (unlike, say, climbing up the water tower to paint BEAT DOOK in giant orange letters), and I don't get why I'm looking at a picture of some guy in blue and reading about Ryan Kelly if the hed is supposed to prime me for Joe Harris's big night.* Please don't do this again.

And a note of thanks to all you patient readers who keep checking in and supplying notice of fresh outrages.  Regular postings resume sometime soon.
