Perhaps they heard that I own every Joni Mitchell CD, and naturally assumed I was female

Snakes on a Sudoku gets mentioned in the daily edition of Publishers Weekly today. Unfortunately, their daily news clips seem to be utterly un-copyedited. Be on the lookout for the words "soduku" and "diagnolly", the movie title Snake on a Plane (perhaps they're thinking of another, much less exciting movie), and for the remarkable result of my recent sex-change operation.

(Update: As noted in the comments, my gender confusion has been alleviated. You can also scroll down to the bottom of the page for a picture of me and one of my coworkers handing out promotional copies of Snakes in front of the Union Square movie theater.)

Oh, that's funny! I didn't even finish reading the article before I came over here to see what you said about it.

It's very, very odd reading about someone you know with the genders switched. I can only imagine how odd it would be to read it about YOURSELF.

invented acronym? Maybe I'm reading incorrectly but SOAP appears to be the actual first letters of the words in the movie title.

Aw, man, they went and *fixed* it.

...and Charles, I was going to comment about the questionable term "invented acronym". Good show!

It's ridiculous that anything calling itself Publishers Weekly is un-copyedited.

As of 4:50, they fixed your gender, but not the other problems you mention, nor the baffling "so-stupid-its-funny".

Aw, now I feel sorry for that lonely little Snake on a Plane.

I thought they were confused enough being the Publisher's Weekly Daily.

This whole thing is hilarious, and may the royalties continue to roll!

Francis - I always knew you would amount to something! But seriously... You're still the smartest guy I used to know. I haven't seen you since our last performance of 'What the Butler Saw.' Do you live in NYC? Let's meet for a beer or coffee or a slab of soy bacon.
