The note at the end of the adoption agency algorithm section reads:

This algorithm’s name, the "adoption agency algorithm", comes from the way it causes elements to change parents, and is in contrast with other possible algorithms for dealing with misnested content, which included the "incest algorithm", the "secret affair algorithm", and the "Heisenberg algorithm".

Perhaps the sentence could end after "change parents."

Agreed. That's a weird "joke" to have in there. It also doesn't make much sense in context.

At best, the previous description was inaccurate. At worst, distasteful.
