One Letter Can Change the Meaning

The following is not an April Fool's joke.

When Vice-President Biden excitedly called the just-enacted health reform bill a “big f------ deal,” the embarrassment was short-lived. The President said "Joe's comment" was "the best thing" that happened on the bill's signing date. Democrats are now glorifying the faux pas in a fund-raising T-shirt that proudly proclaims “Health reform is a BFD.”

The obvious Republican counter-T-shirt would be “Health reform is a BFUD”, as in “big [fouled] up deal.” It's possible for one letter to change the meaning entirely. © 2010 Stephen Yuen
