PRLog (Press Release)Sep. 17, 2013 – NEW ORLEANS — 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 taking this matter serious. They’re 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 to keep ourselves entertained.”

Nola.com - For being such a small town, DeQuincy sure does seem to attract a lot of attention. The Louisiana town of less than 4,000 people has been at the tail end of three false press releases this year, the most recent of which landed on the Internet today claiming the town’s mayor had banned twerking. “It’s a bunch of hogwash,” said DeQuincy Mayor Lawrence Henagan. “There’s nothing to it.” Earlier this year, a press release landed online that claimed the town had banned Koreans from living there, and last month a release claimed all DeQuincy students would be issued guns in school. Each time, Henagan said his office has received phone calls requesting comment on the controversial — but fake — ordinances. “Somebody keeps this mess going on,” Henagan said. “Like I told the first lady (who called today), I didn’t even know what she was talking about. Twerking, whatever it’s called, she had to tell me what it is.”

Internet doing it big per usual. Just keeps punking poor DeQuincy Louisiana with fake press releases that go viral. First saying all students got issued guns in schools. Then saying it banned Koreans and now saying it banned twerking. The media keep eating it up and calling this hick mayor asking him for official statements each time. The whole thing reminds me of Dannyboy Cane all over again. “At no point at no point was I ever attacked by a bear let alone encountered one. So for people to keep really believing I was attacked by a bear it’s total ludicrous…”

Do you interent! Do you!
