Fingering Yourself at the Westboro Church Means You're Trying Too HardS

Hey, look! Laura Lush, the bassist from a punk band and pornography collective called Get Shot! fingered herself on the lawn of the Westboro Baptist Church. (There is video and it is very NSFW.) Way to stick it to...yourself, you punk rock mama! You've successfully offended the most easily offended people on the planet.

From the band's press release:

“The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy. As a bisexual woman and the bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy.”

Owning your sexuality and saying "fuck you" to the WBC are both great things so why is this so annoying? Ohhhh, it's because Get Shot! is so annoying. It's all starting to make sense now.

Some observations from the shoot by fellow bandmate J.P. Hunter:

“There was a lot of traffic and we saw a few cops at a coffee shop a few blocks away. We barley had enough gas money and cocaine to make it to Denver for our next concert. Since we can’t afford bail, we had to cut it a little short before the cops got called. If someone will bail us out, we will bring a group of girls and a whole camera crew when we come back in a few months”

Drugs, sex and a fear of cops? How barley punk rock of you.

If it makes the WBC unhappy, it can't be that baaaaad, but I still think y'all are trying too hard. Remember, the people you're enraging are the same reactionary idiots who picketed Roger Ebert's funeral and got mad at a little girl for selling lemonade.

That said, this is awesome:
