A Georgia legislator has felt the Internet burn of ‘Shop mockery, something that memes made intensely popular. Now he wants to ban Internet butthurt.
Are you ready? Get those Mandrill Baboon butts ready… someone needs to file a challenge lawsuit ASAP if this law actually passes.
It’s House Bill 39, in the Georgia State legislature.
Here’s what happened – Earnest Smith got bent out of shape that someone authored a porn image edit with his face attached to a muscular xxx star, and sought to seek a ban on such horribly lewd content from his delicate eyes.
He stated, “No one has a right to make fun of anyone. You have a right to speak, but no one has a right to disparage another person. It’s not a First Amendment right.”
Is this guy tooting coke??? Srsly. I am NOT a lawyer, but this guy needs to wake up and smell the blood money running through the streets, we are NOT in Communist China, and we are on the verge, as citizens, of being “disappeared” for pissing off the police, now this soft-skinned tin-pot-Hitler wannabe wants us to cater to his eggshell-fragile feelings? NO.
And so the saga continues…

Now here are the fun images that’re making the rounds on the Internet:
