The internet is a beautiful thing.
For the second year in a row, the Chicago White Sox unloaded their ace, last year it was Chris Sale to the Red Sox, this year they’re sending Jose Quintana across town to the Chicago Cubs for some prospects.
If you were on Reddit’s r/whitesox board last night, you saw a thread started by user KatyPerrysBootyHole, who modestly passed along some dirt:‘KatyPerrysBootyHole’ said: “Hey guys, take this with a grain of salt, but I heard from a friend who’s brothers friend works for the cubs (sounds like bullshit I know), that Q is going to the cubs in exchange for 4 players. Has anyone heard anything similar?”
Then user wetbutt23 jumped in to make a correction: The deal actually involved four prospects, not big-league players. How did wetbutt23 know? As KatyPerrysBootyHole acknowledged, wetbutt23 was his source.
About 13 hours AFTER KatyPerrysBootyHole passed along wetbutt23’s information, the deal was announced: Quintana for four prospects.
A CSN Chicago story on how the trade avoided the radars of the national baseball writers was forced to issue an excellent correction:
Correction: While no national media had this story, a Reddit user named “wetbutt23″ had it last night. CSNChicago.com apologizes to wetbutt23 for the error.
I can’t believe this is happening, if you click the link to the CSN Chicago story in the previous paragraph, this is 100% real and their correction even exists. This is the most incredible thing I’ve seen on the internet. Hysterical. God bless Al Gore for inventing this magnificent machine. KatyPerrysBootyHole definitely ISN’T fake news!
