Richmond, Virginia - (Ass Mess): A student has claimed First Amendment satire rights after a lifelike photo of protein-defying ageing pancake salesman and evangelical TV pundit the Reverend Pat Robertson was posted in the Top Ten Shits division of the Faecesbook social nit-working webshite.
The posting caused an outcry at Regent University where the 73 year-old prosletiser is chancellor and president.
A swift witch-hunt found the perpetrator and within hours a second-year law student was threatened caught and threatened with immediate expulsion for the offense.
The young wag retaliated saying that after the famous second appeal in the Alaskan Bong Hits 4 Jesus case was launched last month it was important to keep satire high up in the First Amendment agenda.
"Anyway, Robertson has made himself the butt of countless jokes and lampoonery with his dumass pancake-peddling business," the student asserted, "so it's not like he didn't deserve a little extra attention in cyberspace."
But sources close to the evangelical TV missionary have said Robertson is stung and will take all necessary action to destroy his lampooner before a fully-fledged vilification campaign reduces him to public moron status.
Expect more details at the weekend.
