Gov. Rick Scott makes national news again!

Read about how he accidentally gave out a number for a phone-sex hotline in the Daily News. And in the Huffington Post. And in the Daily Beast. And on the ABC News blog. And on Salon. We could go on, but you could also JFGI.

Apparently, the governor was trying to give out the number for a meningitis hotline, now that Florida can be counted as among the states where the disease has killed someone who contracted it via a steroid injection prescribed for back pain.

And just so you have it handy, the Florida fungal meningitis hotline number is 866-523-7339.
