    The New Yorker got this itself years ago on the old Weekend tv news show when they ran a commercial bumper consisting of copies of New York, New Yorker, and New Yorkest magazines.

    Technically, Jupiter would be a comparative (as in more Jupit), with Jupitest as the superlative, but I’ll let this one slide…

    (but not before posting, however)

      But isn’t that what it says, with “Jupit” being the positive, “Jupiter” being the comparative, and “Jupitest” being the superlative?  What am I not seeing?

         I believe he/she was referring to the title.

           Ah!  Silly me.

    Reminds me of the common misspelling of “atheist.”

    Once contemplated changing my username for posting here to “The Athiest Atheist.”  Clearly I’m athier than the rest of you atheists. :)

      Now don’t get all “athier than thou” on us.

    I laughed, too. I’m going to name my next cat Jupitest.
