We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenies of the Week...The Green Bay Press Gazette. Oh, sure, we'd like to name someone from Chicago; one of the Bears, a member of their coaching staff, one of the truly talent-challenged sports columnists from either of their daily newspapers, perhaps some rabid, delusional Bear fan who truly believes Jay Cutler is an "elite" quarterback and not just some man-scara and guy-liner wearing mama's boy with an okay arm and a near debilitating personality disorder. And yet, it is impossible to ignore just how epically stupid it was for the Green Bay Press Gazette to misspell "Chicago" C-H-I-C-A-C-O in about 24 point type on the front page of their Monday edition. We get it. Mistakes happen. We all make them. Nobody's perfect. But seriously, "CHICACO" and NO ONE noticed an error that glaring in one inch high letters scrawled across the top of the front page of the paper.

So, for making an error so glaring Ray Charles could have seen it...and he's blind AND dead!

For giving Chicago an extra "C" which is two letter grades higher than anyone at the Press Gazette ever received in spelling.


For reinforcing what most FIB's already believe, that all Wisconsinites are illiterate, ass-scratching nimrods, when, as we all know, that only describes Gannett newspaper copy editors.

We are proud to name The Green Bay Press Gazette as this week's Rick and Len...WEENIES OF THE WEEK.
