Apologies to any readers or employees of the Clarion Ledger who were momentarily alarmed by this headline. I just wanted to give them a taste of their own medicine.

A tweet from the Clarion Ledger account that says, "Archie Manning: Ole Miss football legend, dad of Eli, Peyton, grandfather of Arch, is 75."

It's not even his birthday! Why would they post this?
