"Sexual ass" teacher arrest headline not about six-year-old rapper's "Booty Pop" video

In recent days, plenty of cultural arbiters have gotten upset over "Booty Pop," the explicit new video by Albert Roundtree, age six; the NSFW clip is on view below.

Surprisingly, however, that's not the subject of a headline viewable until a short time ago on the Denver Post's website -- one that featured the phrase "sexual ass."

Here's a screen capture of the headline in question, which appears third from the top in a most-popular box that's now been updated on this Post article:

Yes, the word "ass" was shortened from "assault," as the reader who sent it our way notes. He adds, "Another reason copy editors do matter" -- a reference to the Post's controversial decision to do away with its copy desk in a cost-saving newsroom reconfiguration.

Of course, this gaffe could also be due to a computer error of the sort that recently listed the Boulder Daily Camera's fourth-most-viewed item under the headline "Sorry, we could not find the article you're looking for." But whatever the case, it, like this look at young Mr. Roundtree's zeitgeist-y epic, is a sign of the times.
