Light Pillars and Human Errors

Light pillars scrape the night sky over Alaska. It may look as if an alien invasion force is beaming down to overrun our little planet but, in fact, this is a purely natural phenomenon. Light and water is all that is needed to produce this remarkable special effect.When light, either natural or man-made comes in to contact with the facets of ice crystals in the air (usually close to the ground) it does one thing: bounce.  When the source of light is close to or on the ground the light pillar will appear above the floating crystals. ~ Kuriositas

Did the author use the word "butt" ironically in his piece or did the spellchecker on his iPhone just replace every instance of "but" with "butt" all on its own? I thought for a second that I got the edgy wit of it.. but then, no.. it was gone..Is there a joke I'm not getting?
