Scraping Santorum into a Little Puddle and Putting It in a Garbage Can

Posted by on February 9 at 14:28 PM

By now everyone is familiar with our dear editor’s effort to besmirch the dubious name of Senator Rick Santorum by defining his surname (lowercase) as “the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.”

Seattlest has the goods on the sneaky, humorless Senate staffers (presumably Santorum’s own) who have edited Wikipedia articles to remove any reference to the nasty substance which is now inextricably linked with the homophobic legislator’s tenure in the halls of government.

I should note that as of right now, the Wikipedia entry in question does include a reference to the new definition of santorum. Keep fighting the good fight, wiki editors!
