    I love how your link to the cartoon “Dexter’s Laboratory” goes to horror show “Dexter”. Some kid is going to click on that and freak out.

    That’s really funny Joe 12-Pack!!

    I wonder if Zap2it will ever fix their Dexter link mistake or just leave it like that from now on??

    I guess they did not test the link before they posted the press release.

    I wonder how Disney is going to react to the mistake, especially if it’s not repaired in a resonable amount of time? They probably paid for the press release in the first place. I doubt if they want children to be linked to Dexter the Showtime cable show trying to link on a G rated cartoon program.
