Lady O - Political Heavyweight

After having missed much of the last three weeks due to illness, State Senator Ophelia Ford has come roaring back with a piece of legislation that will enrich the lives of all of her fortunate constituents---

A resolution honoring Justin Timberlake.

Sad to note that on the list of his accomplishments, she left off "Dick In a Box".

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE OF THE ONE HUNDRED FIFTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CONCURRING, that we hereby honor and commend Mr. Justin Timberlake on his highly successful music career and for his meritorious service to the State of Tennessee and extend to him our best wishes for every future success.

Read the full resolution here.

Hat tip to Kleinheider

The Timberlake Resolution, sponsored by District 29's Lady O, was on the consent calendar--- Meaning it would be automatically approved unless someone objected to it.

Well, someone has, so it comes up for a roll call vote tomorrow.

Personally, I've had a change of heart. I can support this bill---Just as soon as they add the "Dick In a Box" amendment.

Again, hat tip to Kleinheider

UPDATE- The "This is Huge!!!" Edition

Vibinc has done us the honor of writing the "Dick In a Box" Amendment.

It is resolved by the Members of the House, Senate and recognized by the citizens of the great state of Tennessee, that the following steps outline a path to greatness.

Step 1. Cut a hole in the box
Step 2. Put your junk in that box
Step 3. Make her open the Box.
That's the way ya do it
It's my dick in a box!

These steps are a testimony to the ingenuity, creativity, and can do attitude of our citizens, and truly captures the spirit of Christmas.

I only learned about his Mouseketeer past the other day. I was researching whether in fact Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera wore the mouse ears as I had been telling someone and lo and behold...Justin Timberlake!

How many here remember Annette Funicello?

I'm young enough that I only remember her mini-comeback in the eighties when she did another dumb beach movie with Frankie Avalon.

I was aware of him and Britney being Mouseketeers... Didn't know about Christina, though.

Wikipedia has a good article with all the gory details.

Unfortunately, I'm old enough to have seen pubescent Annette Funicello with her mouse-ears cap, blowing bubbles at me in 3-D out of a giant screen in an amusement park in Annaheim, CA. Worse, I can remember it rather vividly. All together now: EHM-EYE-SEE...KAY-EEH-WHY...EHM-OH-YOU-EH-SEE.

OK, that's probably more than you needed to know. Never mind.

Backstage at the voter rally, dick in a box
Under the table at a fundraiser, dick in a box
Hanging at the victory party, dick in a bo-o-o-ox,
yeah yeah yeah yeah

Dammit Bob, I remember Annette Funicello.
Yikes.
Can we get the Dick In A Box put to music? I can only imagine that it would be downloaded and there would be riches and fame for you guys.
Just like Britt, Christina and Justin Timberlake, without the ears.

Riches and fame? Sounds nice. The only downside is that we'd have to hang out with coked-up supermodels and... Wait... That's the DOWNside? Count me in!
