Muffingate at the Huffpost correction

Sometimes morons just need to be fisked and the mood just strikes. Huffpo tries to clear the DOJ in Muffingate by asserting that it was a $16 continental breakfast and not just a muffin.

Re: $16 muffin really a $16 continental breakfast.

A continental breakfast is essentially a muffin + coffee or tea. It's not a very big change and you can google "continental breakfast price" to get a feel for what the cost is. It's $5-$7 normally. So the $16 charge is somewhere between 2x-3x the normal price. Wow, that correction makes me feel so much better about the DOJ's cost controls.
