Really?

Last week the Tennessee Department of Corrections experimented with tweeting like a teenager, saying they, "really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really need you to refer to [their] facility-based #correctionalprofessionals as Officers and NOT guards." The Twitterverse wasn't having any of it, and responses ranged from an easily anticipated, "No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no," to the succinct, "Nah, you guard-ass bitch."

Think it Over

Your Pesky Fly is certain this was intentional cleverness on behalf of the Memphis Business Journal, and as long as you're not headed toward a cliff or a wall (oil slick, bad marriage, swarm of bees) "momentum" is a good thing, we suppose. Still, imagining Mayor Jim Strickland as Diana Ross is upsetting in any case.
