Lector Language Person Is Amused

I read this article off of CNN's website, and found myself snerking happily in my chair. Not so much for the description of hot gorilla luv, but for a slightly different reason:

That might be unlikely — male gorillas, after all, are happily polyandrous, mating with multiple females in their group.

Um. Scientists? That word? "Polyandrous?" It does not mean what you think it means . . .

Feb. 19. This Just In: The editors have realized their mistake and issued an oops statement amending it to the correct word, "polygynous." Thank you, ssotknapsack!
