He's Luckey the Blade Can't Spell Any Better Than He Can

And the Wall Street Journal responds:

So the question is: Joel Schwartzberg, alien or robot? There are other possibilities, of course. It may be that he is human and suffers from a condition akin to blindness or deafness--a congenital or acquired lack of the ability to sense humor. Or perhaps--and this is a long shot--he's being so deadpan that we're missing the joke.

In any case, it's nothing we need to worry about. Luckey for us!
