(Memphis Commercial Appeal)   Based upon absolutely nothing, Tennessee lawmakers worried that a newly installed mystery faucet in the capitol is some sort of sekrit Moosaleaum prayer sink. That's the joke   (commercialappeal.com) divider line 173

Whoever did that is smarter than all the republicans in TN put together.

Farking idiots.

Silly Jesus: Satanic_Hamster: But don't you dare call them racist.

That didn't take long.

Because thinking that a sink is used for prayers by people of a certain religion means that they think that they are genetically inferior.  Hurrrr DuRrrrrrrrrrR


Oh, good!  Someone's here to stick up for the ignorant bigots!

Fun fact: these days the savvy Muslim has an app on his/her cellphone that calculates the great circle between your present location and Mecca, and correctly orients you to the proper geocentric direction, rather than just "the east".

It's a shame the lawmakers weren't a bit more crafty.  They could have set up some elaborate Wile E. Coyote-esque trap around the sink to nab the secret Muslim.

/fastforward to an obvious kangaroo court wherein a somewhat frazzled mop sits in silence as it is sentenced to death for the crime of being Muslim.

I'm not familiar with this gentleman's work, but this doesn't read like a troll. Rather it appears to be a slightly hyperbolic statement of truth.

Well, then the great sink patriots will just have to make the building into a giant spinning faraday cage, with no sinks less than 4 feet off the ground.

I recognized Lulu right off the bat. I do love seeing the word 'philistine' associated with anyone not culturally aware of  the entertainment relevance of a television classic such as 'Hee Haw'. I found your use of the term both refreshing and enjoyable. I shall say, 'Roll Tide' on your behalf... and as an LSU fan, that means you really did brighten my Fark experience.

Your jib, I like the cut of it.

You all may think this is funny, but it isn't the first time I have heard something like this. The desktop staging area were I worked at a few years ago was in a room that used to be a bathroom before a remodeling of the floor was done. So you would walk into the first door and to the right there was another door that went into the staging area. If you turned to the left, in plain view was still an old mop sink. You would here people whisper all of the time that there was an Muslim prayer area on the first floor that only Muslims were allowed to go in, because since it was the desktop staging area it also had a lock on the door that you needed an id with access to the area to open. We used to laugh all the time when we over heard people talking about it and joke that they probably though all of the desktop people were probably Muslims that did nothing but pray all day because they were constantly going in and out of their room.

And, on the off chance it WAS a Muslim prayer sink, how is that a bad thing?

I would have expected it was for the feet of these lawmakers, to wash before they put them in their mouths.

Your state elected Rick Santorum, your argument is invalid.


In all fairness, we DID punt him in 2006.

Although we then elected Tom Corbett in 2010.

So, I guess, carry on. :(

You folks know what really gets me angry at this ? I love TN, its a beautiful place. Folks i met there were always friendly.Even the cops at BNA, when i asked the best place to stow my gear so i could go have a smoke. I had kinda thought of maybe getting a place in that general area so I would be able to visit the Opa more often, but man.....I thought Cali had idiots running the joint. Sigh

Well, the other side of that is that it's not really _that_ important that you be perfectly aligned.  Islam's pretty reasonable about most of its requirements, it's the only religion where its dietary restrictions are suffixed with "unless that's all there is to eat, in that case OK, don't starve yourself or anything dumb like that".

I mean, not that that's not a cool app and such, but you're actually pretty much allowed to take a random guess as to where you are and what direction is the right one.

Sorry, wrong thread. I'm very pissed off about the complacency thrown about when it comes to today's gay rights. I shall go forth and dip myself in the finest liquid cheese whilst drinking the most available of beers. If nothing else goes wrong, I will marry one of them. Hopefully, no further ugliness will result from this debauchery.

I'm torn between:

"Not if Tenneseeans have anything to say about it!"

and

"Not any good ones."

I see rocky mountains and great lakes
Stood beneath a redwood tree
But wherever I go my heart aches
For a place called Tennessee

Oh come with me
Where the Whiskey flows like wine
And the meth labs are divine
Oh I wanna be
Where the sweet tobacco grows
And is picked by poor negros
In Tennessee
Oh it's a place where dueling banjos play
And the mountain folk run free
Where all the children can spell K-K-K
But cannot spell Tennessee

Oh come with me
Where every cheek is filled with chew
And no one's ever seen a Jew
Oh I wanna be
Where the hotdogs are deep fried
That's the reason Elvis died
In Tennessee

Oh come with me
Where the backstreet preachers shout
That if your gay you best get out
Oh I wanna be
Where hospitality is a thing
Just ask Martin Luther King
Shot in Tennessee

The birth place of Aretha queen of soul
BB King and Al Gore
I'm not saying it's a shiat hole
But they don't live there anymore
Oh I wanna see
Mountain Dew in every cup
And all the dentists just gave up
Oh come with me
On my flat-bed pickup truck
That's were the classy ladies fark
In Tennessee
Oh in Tennessee
