It only takes one wrong letter and suddenly husbands are for sale
But when you don't take your own advice and an 'n' becomes a 'y' it can be a moment of fun even when the topic is tough.
In this case the topic was dead serious but the tweet was less than perfect: New Haven police to hold guy buyback Dec. 3 - They say no questions asked. Here are the details: bit.ly/syRvRt #NHV #guns
This is an important issue in New Haven, as the city is heading toward a possible record number of homicides. Thirty people are dead so far this year. A recent day of raids netted guns, cash, and drugs.
But when 'gun' becomes 'guy' some people rightly react and rightly poke fun at the tweet (not at the topic of guns)
Consider, for instance:
the1megsta: “@nhregister: New Haven police to hold guy buyback Dec. 3 - They say no questions asked.". Ha ha how much for my husband?
PRCov: Don't tell my wife! RT @nhregister New Haven police to hold guy buyback Dec. 3...
Lord_Byronn: LOL good way to get guns off the streets RT @nhregister Redux with no typo: New Haven police to (cont) http://t.co/sKp1pyxq
We hope this one is not that Laura Bush:
Laura_Bush: Really? How much for my guy? :) RT @nhregister New Haven police to hold guy buyback Dec. 3 - They say no questions asked.
And on Facebook:
Steven McGuire "guy buyback"? were they defective?
