Priceless. "Hey! Louie?" Wha? "Get us a cover shot of that Paula Broadwell book." Who? "Broadwell." Which one? "The Petraeus one." OK. I'll look.

ABC has obviously mastered the fine art of the single entendre.

Which is kind of a pity, because there there's so much comedy gold in this saga without being crude. For example:

All in: that goes without comment.

The Education of General Petraeus

An 'embedded' journalist who had 'unrestricted access' to the General.

Writer's diary, day 1: getting the lay of the land.

Writer's diary, day 2: getting my...feet under the desk.

The *head desk* moment.

Broadwell tells all: I give General Petraeus 'four stars'.

Broadwell sings: I'm the very (machine gun) model of a modern military major general...

Petraeus: I was hoping to get the Gingrich voters when I launched my Presidential run...

Getting to know your subject (in the biblical sense).

Getting to know your biographer inside out.

Polishing your thesis material.

Creating a surge/staying the course.

And in a shocking twist, it turns out the FBI agent who kicked off the investigation is none other than...Anthony Wiener.

All joking aside, folks. If there's one lesson we should all take away from this story, it's this:

The E-mail of the species is far, far deadlier than the mail.
