Reminds me of the occasional Failbook posts where a husband and wife are describing their own past or future acts of sexual congress through wall posts, and then their kid is like "MOM DAD WTF" and the parents are all like "I thought this was private chat please how do I erase!!" Shame. I liked Weiner.

People have to learn, the only way you can safely send a picture of your wang to someone is if you have the only copy self-destruct as soon as someone looks at it, and we don't have that technology yet. Though I'm sure Weiner and Favre can pool their money for research purposes, since they'll both probably be unemployed soon.

A new Tennessee law makes it a crime to "transmit or display an image" online that is likely to "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" to someone who sees it. Violations can get you almost a year in jail time or up to $2500 in fines.

The Tennessee legislature has been busy updating its laws for the Internet age, and not always for the better. Last week we reported on a bill that updated Tennessee's theft-of-service laws to include "subscription entertainment services" like Netflix.

The ban on distressing images, which was signed by Gov. Bill Haslam last week, is also an update to existing law. Tennessee law already made it a crime to make phone calls, send emails, or otherwise communicate directly with someone in a manner the sender "reasonably should know" would "cause emotional distress" to the recipient. If the communciation lacked a "legitimate purpose," the sender faced jail time.

The new legislation adds images to the list of communications that can trigger criminal liability. But for image postings, the "emotionally distressed" individual need not be the intended recipient. Anyone who sees the image is a potential victim. If a court decides you "should have known" that an image you posted would be upsetting to someone who sees it, you could face months in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

So if I post a pic of something someone in Tennessee doesn't like, are they going to extradite me, or does this only pertain to pics posted by Tennesseeans, or posted within the borders of Tennessee?

Oh, stop that. You know they didn't consider any of that when they wrote this bill.

Sometimes, I think law makers write bills so that their lawyer friends can rack up nice fees suing the state and proving it to be unconstitutional.

Sadly, state legislatures doing something completely and utterly nonsensical hasn't really been "news" for at the very least, this long.

A dimwitted Philadelphia mom could have made her status update "in jail" after cops say she used Facebook to hire a hitman to kill her baby daddy.

Eley London's alleged attempt to use social media to hire an assassin stunned jaded cops.

But what really amazed police was the sheer stupidity of wannabe killer 18-year-old Tim Bynum, who they say agreed to rub out Corey Jerome White for $1,000.

"It's shocking that people are just so stupid," said Lt. John Walker.

Police said London, 20, went online in search of a hired gun on May 23 after getting into an argument with White. On her Facebook profile, she posted this message:

"I will pay somebody a stack to kill my baby father."
