The state on the internet

Having solved all of the state’s problems, our legislators pass a law making it illegal to: transmit or display an image” online that is likely to “frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress” to someone who sees it. Violations can get you almost a year in jail time or up to $2500 in fines.

    Uh huh. And who gets to determine if an image is likly to “frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress” to someone who sees it”? Riiiiight

  2. Joanna Says:


    Have they seen the Internet?

  3. BobG Says:

    So, no more pictures of Nancy Pelosi?

  4. Name Redacted Says:

    I don’t think legislators get the internet.

  5. D2k Says:

    That is the most pants-on-head-retarded thing I’ve seen in a while.

  6. Mad Saint Jack Says:

    Like this one?

    Stingray had better start saving his pennies.

    I’m still scarred by some of the things he links to in VC.

    Markie Marxist sez: “Cool! That should shut down the exchange of gun pics on the Internet. Every good Marxist knows that pictures of privately owned guns “frighten, intimidate and cause emotional distress” to anyone who is a good communist. They certainly have that effect on me, and I can testify to that in court, honestly even! Privately owned guns scare the crap out of us commies! Ask my commie compadre, Paul Helmke. I hear the poor man even has to wear Depends!”
    “I just love it when our government thought police intervene to ram our Marxist values down the throats of the freedom lovers! We might have to build an extra prison for all the gun bloggers. Time to raise taxes! Ha! Ha!”

    I find this law to be frightening and intimidating, and it causes me emotional distress. Can I press charges against the TN legislature?

  11. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Does that include anything that’s on http://www.Tennessee.Gov?

  12. Bram Says:

    Wah! I have an emotional bo-bo!

  13. The Gun Guy in NJ Says:

    I fear cats. It causes me emotional distress. Please everyone on the internet take down your cat photos! <=Sarcasm.

    Let’s put up a wagering pool. This law goes into the dumper on the A: First, B: Second conviction with appeal on First Amendment grounds.

    Didn’t some Judge once say “You don’t have a right to not be offended”?

  15. Jim S Says:

    So I have a friend who is deathly afraid of clowns….and if I happen to own a clown catering/entertaining service…how the hell am I to advertise?

  16. mike w. Says:

    so basically they’ve banned everything on the internet?

  17. Sebastiano Says:

    Boy is Anthony Weiner in trouble now.

    They can have my efukt when they take it from my cold dead hands!

    (Side note, don’t go to efukt .com unless you’re ready!)

    LOL – I love this comment thread.

    Here is the House Sponsor’s campaign website:

    Note all the females with their hair uncovered. This is obviously distressing to the muslim population, so Rep Curtiss should be getting some criminal charges soon.

  21. Justthisguy Says:

    This is un-necessary, whether or not wise or Constitutional. There is already a federal anti-Goatse law, which forbids posting blind links to sites like that.

    Are you people aware of the Pain Series from Encyclopedia Dramatica? Looking at those will make it hard to get to sleep. People of weak minds and delicate sensibilities ain’t got no business on the ‘net.

  22. mikee Says:

    This is actually a law passed and active now? I say start filing the charges against every legislator who has a picture of themselves on their websites.

    Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, after all.

  23. hellferbreakfast Says:

    What a bunch of sissies!!!!

  24. Ron W Says:

    And I thought we had a more conservative legislature, that is, one which should CONSERVE the Constitution, particulary the Tennessee Constitution’s Declaration of Rights.

    They can take my goatse when they pry it from my cold, dead hands

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
