The Philadelphia Public Record newspaper has apologized for using racial slurs in a photo caption depicting City Councilman Mark Squilla with a group of Asians in Chinatown, referring to some in the photo as “Chinky Winky,” “Dinky Doo,” and “Me Too.”

“That editor is a Britisher,” Tayoun explained, puzzlingly. “He didn’t mean anything by it. The Public Record is the most inclusive publication in Philadelphia.”

“Didn’t mean anything by it”? Good Lord, man, do you know what this means? Tourette syndrome has jumped the tracks and evolved into a written tic in addition to a verbal one!

Moo goo gai pan!

Jessie Nizewitz is suing VH1 for $10 million, saying while she agreed to appear on the network’s reality show “Dating Naked,” she said the network promised to blur out her special lady parts.

They didn’t. . . .

She told the New York Post she wants a “huge apology” from the companies, since the show cost her a “budding relationship” with someone she’d been seeing for a month. . . .

“He never called me again after the show aired. I would have hoped we could have had a long-term relationship. He was employed, Jewish, in his 30s and that’s pretty much ideal,” Nizewitz said.

Ideal, except apparently for that whole thing about not dating women who go naked on TV on the first date with other men.
