THE Philadelphia Public Record, the free weekly tabloid published by former Philadelphia City Councilman Jimmy Tayoun Sr., regrets the error. A recent report on current Philadelphia City Councilman Mark Squilla at an event in Chinatown wrongly identified his hosts as “Chinky Winky,” “Me Too,” and “Dinky Doo”.“

It was a proofreading error,” says Mr Tayoun. He says the editor used those names because he didn’t have the actual names. Althought, oddly, there were more names than people.

“That editor is a Britisher,” Tayoun added. “He didn’t mean anything by it. The Public Record is the most inclusive publication in Philadelphia.”

The editor who can’t count has been identified:
