Michael Brodkorb dings Andy Parrish with LOL-worthy bestiality zinger
Brodkorb is curious about Parrish's sudden interest in man-on-animal sex.
Andy Parrish must've had a slow Saturday -- he spent part of his evening trolling prominent DFLers on Twitter.
-- Rep. Phyllis Kahn on Seward voting lines: "Someone at the city should be executed"
-- Andy Parrish trolls Chris Kluwe on Twitter
-- DFL cuts MNGOP Senate staffers' salaries; Bakk cites cost of Brodkorb lawsuit
One of his targets was Rep. Phyllis Kahn, D-Minneapolis, who in 1999 authored a bill that would've repealed all state laws criminalizing sex between consenting adults, including prostitution and bestiality. (But what if the poor animal doesn't consent?)
In an apparent attempt to embarrass her, Parrish tweeted at Kahn and asked, "[D]o you plan to introduce legalizing sex with animals again?"
That question prompted a humdinger of a reply from Michael Brodkorb, who asked Parrish: "You lonely tonight?"
(Parrish has since deleted tweet, though you can see a retweet of it here.)
And that wasn't the only time Parrish wound up on the losing end of a notably Minnesotan's Twitter zing this weekend. He received this rejoinder from the Star Tribune's Rachel Stassen-Berger after complaining about the Strib's paywall yesterday morning):
@andyparrishmn 1) Should news be free? That's not very market-driven of you. 2) I think you mean "ridiculous" (copy editors cost money, too)

:::: UPDATE ::::
8:40 a.m. -- This morning, Sally Jo Sorensen sent along a screegrab of Parrish's original tweet, which came in the form of a reply to Kahn's message of support for Minnesota Orchestra musicians, of all things:
And on her Bluestem Prairie blog, Sorensen takes a humorous look at Parrish's repeated, and repeated, and repeated Twitter trolling of Secretary of State Mark Ritchie about voting rights for ex-cons -- trolling that hinges on a fundamental misunderstanding of Minnesota law.
Can we create a Best Unintentional Political Comedian category for the next City Pages Best Of? Between Parrish and Mary Franson, the competition would be fierce.
