Apple is currently embroiled in a momentous legal battle against the government, but they’re also staying on top of what really matters: dicks.


Twitter user Dan Leech recently pointed out a curious little detail about the source code for Apple’s OS X webpage: The catchphrase for El Capitan, “more to love with every click,” seems innocuous at first—until you realize that the font makes “click” look like “dick.”

To solve this “problem,” Apple decided to space out the letters, thereby circumventing any embarrassing confusion. If you sneak a look at the site’s source code, you’ll notice that “click” is enclosed with <span> tags.

Another Twitter user put together a handy illustration of the effect:

Interestingly, as our friends at Gizmodo UK point out, their version of the site includes no such change, so it’s dicks abound across the ocean. Americans and their puritanism! “There’s more to love with every dick” sounds better anyway.
