This Was No Laughing Matter

In the "Jokes" column on March 1 came this gem:

"Comedy writer Alex Pearlstein, on the doctor who amputated the wrong foot of a Florida man. 'Asked what went wrong, the doctor said he was stumped.' "

This is a joke ? Alex Pearlstein is a comedy writer? God help us all.
