A priceless journalistic boo-boo!

This correction notice had me rolling in the aisles - and yes, it's genuine.  I'll let the tweet speak for itself.

A Purple Heart for an IUD injury?  I imagine emergency room staff all over the country would pay for the privilege of treating that injury . . . that is, if they could stop laughing long enough to do so!  As for the officer writing the citation for the medal, it could only be a miscreant Second Lieutenant fresh out of OCS!

Verily, the mind doth boggle . . .

For the record, Peter, most of the 'devices' we remove are IRDs not IUDs... :p
