Post Small probable typo on the front page

I was looking at the front page for the site, and I noticed this sentence: "so feel free to cry, goggle, or laugh out loud..."

I'm guessing that's supposed to be giggle not goggle. (Unless you mean that some of the stories are so bizarre that the reader's eyes will bug out.)

To goggle over here means to gape at something in astonishment. I can see where you're coming from, but it looks like a colloquialisim that escaped

maybe if you flip cry and goggle. So it reads like "so feel free to goggle, cry, or laugh out loud..."
It might remind the youngin' of the older words
I'm in no way calling all of us old geezers.

Well, you'd better check the locks on the coloquialism enclosure then. Can't have those things running around frightening the children.

Oh, so there's some anti-colloquialism going on, is there?

Hmph!

Double hmph!
