Page 1: No. That’s not right. The Brooklyn Paper wouldn’t like to have just a word, because it would like to have many — as many words as it needs to tell a story. You see, the Paper simply misspoke. And it would be silly to think the Paper would ask for one word, when it clearly meant several, wouldn’t it? You wouldn’t think the Paper would botch such a simple statement. No, you would think it knew exactly what it was saying, and wouldn’t need to clarify. But here we are, folks. Should anyone else make such a gaffe, the Paper would understand why you wouldn’t believe their excuse. But it hopes you will accept this explanation. Keep hustlin’, Brooklyn! Comment
