Timberlake brings shame on Tennessee

Plans for Justin Timberlake to be honoured by his home state of Tennessee have been dumped, after someone read the back of one of his records.

Republican Senator Raymond Finney was outraged to discover that Timberlake had songs called SexyBack, Rock Your Body and other such fruity things, and launched a bid to block the plans:

"It's not something I want my name on," said the politician.

God forbid that a Republican senator be associated with anyone with a sexy back. Still, good to see the old image of Southern Republicans as being out-of-touch and prone to vindictive knee-jerk measures alive and well.
