Humor, Truth, and Accurate Language

When someone says something followed by "just kidding," I take notice: truth, or at least that person's perception of the truth, is wrapped up in the joke.  Whether this is a good delivery method for delicate news or not, I am not sure (what do you think?).
Here's a humorous link that points out a perceived language error:  the inaccurate use of the word literally.

What do you think of the humorous critique? Is there truth in it?  What is the issue, if any, with using an otherwise harmless word incorrectly?
