LA town bans twerking. 30 days for first offense

DeQuincy, LA — The dance craze twerking has become such a problem in the small town of DeQuincy, Louisiana that city officials have made it illegal.

Maynard Wilkens who is the Mayor of DeQuincy spoke to CNN about the ban on twerking that takes effect at midnight. “Twerking is a defiant act against Jesus and his teachings. The rest of the country can keep their heads in the sand about this sexual act before marriage, but not the great city of DeQuincy,” Wilkens said. “We will still allow dancing in DeQuincy, just no jigglin’, shakin’ and ‘dry humping’ anywhere in our city limits.”

Bobby Joe Williams who is the sheriff in the town told reporters about the penalties for those caught twerking. “First time offenders will receive a mandatory 30 days in the county jail. After that it will be a much harsher punishment,” Williams said. “We are not taking this matter lightly. There ain’t gonna be no twerkin’ in my city, not no more.”

24-year-old DeQuincy resident Brandon Adams told reporters he does not agree with the new law. “There is nothing to do in this town, seriously. Twerking is all us kids had left and now they’re taking it away from us,” Adams said. “I don’t see what the big deal is. At least we weren’t out causing trouble, sniffing glue and breaking stuff. I guess we’ll now have to go back to doing that.”

Twerking is a type of dancing in which the dancer, usually a woman, shakes her hips up-and-down in a bouncing motion, causing the dancer’s buttocks to shake, ‘wobble’ and ‘jiggle’ in a sexually provocative manner. The origins of twerking are unknown but were recently made popular by Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke‘s performance at the MTV VMAs last month.

The town of DeQuincy has a population of 3,398 as of the 2000 census. DeQuincy is part of the Lake Charles Metropolitan Statistical Area. So far state officials in Louisiana have yet to make a formal statement concerning the ban on twerking in DeQuincy

" Twerking is all us kids had left and now they’re taking it away from us,"

Haven't these kids ever heard of drugs?

a 24 year old calling himself a kid?

Maybe he should go to school or a get a job. Or at least do drugs.

Twerking is stupid.

This is even more stupider.

 

This has to be a joke.

You beat me to it, VU.

 

I wanted a Footloose meme but this one cracks me the fuck up

I had to check a few times to make sure I wasn't posting an onion article.  Those mayor and sherrif quotes are straight out of a bad script. 

good

I hope that law is challenged in court very soon and whoever gets arrested for it wins enough money from the inevitable lawsuit that they bankrupt the city and force the idiots who voted for it and the idiots who tried to enforce it to resign in shame and humiliation.

I suspect that story is fake.

Checking the site, I think it is a joke.
