Monkeypox has been making headlines in recent months as more than 2,000 cases have been reported in the United States so far this year, according to the CDC. Many are wondering if the dreaded disease will be the next pandemic to sweep across the globe, and it's no wonder with people like "James Lim, MD" posting things like this on social media:
Thankfully, there are people like science reporter Benjamin Ryan who are willing to let the world laugh at what might be the most hilarious typo of all time if it teaches people a thing or two along the way.
In response to Lim's fear-mongering, Ryan posted the following tweet:
He said what?
Um, well, we assume Ryan meant to type "men" instead of "me," but that's not what was posted for the world to see. Twitter, of course, took it and ran:
He did indeed own it and even apologized.
Ryan also celebrated "teaching people about global pubic health!"
In all fairness, we're pretty sure the "pubic" typo was intentional (see tweet below.) Either way, Ryan's busy morning on Twitter has been both hilarious and educational.
