Use of [sic] in the quotation in the lead?[edit]

As has been pointed out by 14.202.19.39 (talk), the quotation in the lead—

You almost feel like you're going out and not going out. It's like being at a bar with your friends and hearing all their opinions—while laying in bed eating Snackwell cookies.[1]

—incorrectly uses lay instead of lie. The IP user believes this mistake needs to be highlighted with [sic]. I disagree. Per the Manual of Style, [sic] is used "to show that the error was not made by Wikipedia," but it's doubtful anyone would think this was introduced by us: it's a wording mistake, not a spelling mistake. More importantly—and why I'm bothering to bring it up—it's needlessly derisive; it clutters our lead; and it's even more tedious than this comment. Thoughts? —  Rebbing  talk  01:36, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
