The account in question, which is NSFW

I'm beginning to wonder who created this particular twitter account. I don't think that it's the account in question, and the wackbag.com link makes me think that Jim Norton may be behind the awesome jokes. Just a hunch for some reason.

Yeah, after I posted that I thoght "hmmm...maybe it's a nnewer account"

Still funny as hell.


I'm seriously thinking that the person behind that account is a comedian named Jim Norton though.  The type of jokes that are being used there are exactly his style and they just discussed this case the other day.  If it isn't him, whoever it is needs to go do some standup.

Hector Remarkable: Just more clear proof; yet another example that America is the farthest thing from a free country that you could imagine. Make fun of the authority and the next thing you know uniformed men with guns are going through your underwear drawer.


America is imperfect, especially now, but you sir have a very limited imagination and an even more limited grasp of history if you think Americans could not be less free.

Enemabag Jones: CheapEngineer
JosephFinn: What a surprise from down in the Confederacy. And by Confederacy, I mean all of IL south of Kankakee.
Speaking as a former "downstater" just get it over with and take the entire Chicagoland area and secede. Christ, I'm tired of you bastards and I don't live there anymore.

I thought downstater was a general reference to anyone not in the Chicagoland area starting at about Aurora.

Now you are telling me it is a urban vs redneck thing. News to me.

I didn't know southern Illinois was getting ready to revolt from the chains of it's northern brothers.


For the 10 years I lived in Champaign/Urbana, it was always entertaining watching Chicagoans shudder with revulsion at the prospect of having to leave Chicago and it's burbs. To them, anything farther out than 30 miles is 1950's Alabama.

All those governors who came down from Chicago to rule over us peons (and subsequently went to prison directly afterwards) couldn't be bothered to live in the gov's mansion in Springfield - no running water in the state capitol I guess.

Much easier for them to form their own state and let the poor overall-wearing rednecks have their land of milk and honey and mud.

To be fair, you pass Kankakee on your way from Chicago to Champaign, so it is easy to get confused.

No, just hyperbole-ed. Good luck with your imaginative, if not imaginary, relative freedom. It is my discerned opinion that our freedoms as Americans have declined dramatically from the days of my youth, ,when I was taught what it means to be a man, but now I've reached that age I try to do all these things the best I can , yeah , I think I'm just singing Led Zeppelin now.
Anyway, relative to itSELF, from earlier in MY life - America, it just don't seem as free as it used to be.
But yeah, maybe it's just me. It's a post-911 world. Didn't used to be no darn Twitter. Things have changed. I'm frightened and confused. Hold me.

Uh, no.

Until Illinois has a team in the SEC, they are not and never will be Southerners.

They can be rednecks, but not Southerners.
