15. That was a "joke" ...
A joke is a display of cleverness intended to engender yux. Some people, however, require advance notice if they're to recognize a joke when they read one. In polite society, it's customary to signal the onset of a joke by means of some subtle stratagem, such as a flashing bold font, animated images, or warnings in all caps. Clearly the author of this article in Gawker could stand a lesson in thoughtfulness.
