Apple has had to tweak a web page to make ‘click’ look less rude

Cats and naked people. That's what the internet is for, right?

It might explain why Apple has had to alter a seemingly innocent phrase on its website: an awkward kerning issue that saw too many mucky minds take an hilarious Freudian slip.

A page for Apple's OS X El Capitan held the seemingly innocuous statement: "There’s more to love with every click". But lack of spacing and a grey-white background caused the word 'click' to look a little bit too much like 'dick' - which somewhat changes the tone of the sentence.

By way of solution, Apple added some extra space to allow the letters of 'click' to breath a little more freely - and to pull everyone's mind from the gutter.

Now, stop giggling. You look like a right click.
