Now the "real" media wants to be funny, too.

By Sean Gallagher

Look, I get the irony of a fan-based, irreverent site like this one pointing out the journalistic integrity of another site. But we've (almost) never tried to pass ourselves off as a news outlet, right?

But I'm going to hold to a higher standard when it comes to reporting news and not going for the joke.

So, how exactly did the headline "Penguins complete happy ending" get through the webeditors up there in Canada?

I mean, we're not going to naively pretend that "completing a happy ending" is a normal way of describing a hockey game and not a way of describing a certain act that starts with a massage and ends with hand prostitution, right?

 Tighten up, Canada, and leave the masturbation jokes to us.
