Finally, someone has discovered a reason for the existence of Twitter: Pranksters are hacking into the accounts of politicians and sending embarrassing tweets under their names.
Zach Wamp is among a growing number who have been victimized. His Twitter followers were greeted yesterday, not by Wamp's usual vapid BS, but by tweets advertising a website that sells colon cleansing products. The message read: "hi. this works. i feel better and look great. http://bdgdfij.info." Wamp kept his sense of humor about it, tweeting this correction:
Young, who lost his starting role after last year's season opener against Jacksonville, will ironically make his return as the No. 1 quarterback against the Jaguars.Some will argue that the word "ironically" is misplaced in the sentence, since Young, when he makes his return to the backfield, will not himself be acting in an ironic manner (unless, of course, he walks onto the field while issuing irony-laden remarks to his colleagues). But the more interesting question--granted, interesting primarily to language obsessives--is whether or not this is actually a legitimate example of irony.
At issue is the new 3-square-mile tourism development zone formed to help pay off debt from the city's costliest capital project ever. All businesses in the zone--from the Jiffy Lube to the Krystal--will send their new sales tax cash to the magic kitty for the next 30 years.
It's a crazy thing to behold on a map. It takes in all of downtown, reaches across the Cumberland into East Nashville and winds all the way over to Jefferson Street.
There's another Cornerstone Church spectacle taking place this weekend. And it's Halloween-themed!
You know what's scarier than ghosts, goblins, gays and government-run health care? Eternal damnation! That's what. So Pastor Maury Davis figures he's got the scariest show in town.
The ringmaster of Churchus Maximus says on the church's website that this will be the largest illustrated sermon Cornerstone has ever produced. Bigger than soldiers rappelling from the rafters. Bigger than an indoor fireworks display. Because what looms larger in the sermons of fire-and-brimstone preachers than Hell? And the many, many things you do every day to get you there?
"What would I find if I came to your home -- Drugs? Pornography? Alcohol? Abuse?," Davis asks on his website.
All of the above, if he happened to drop by Pith's house. But does self-abuse count?
"People are living in Hell-on-Earth situations, not realizing their lives will guide them to the place of Eternal Torment. On Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, we will fully illustrate the consequences of hosting secret sins in your home."
Think of the kiddies. No exhilarated, exuberant giggling as they shuffle out of some spooky Halloween funhouse freshly scared. Instead, Little Johnny will mope out of church fearing an immolated eternity for that Playboy stashed beneath the bed. Take heart, Johnny. There are scarier things in the world.
