GOP Congressman Tweets That He Loves ‘Shagging,’ Quickly Deletes

Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-TN) was listening to Pandora earlier today, and in the process of sharing his music with the world, also said that sex was awesome:

Observers quickly pointed out that Fincher most likely meant the “Carolina shag,” a dance that is done to “beach music” from the 1950’s and 60’s that originates from, well, the Carolinas. And judging by the song itself (“I Love Beach Music” by The Embers), it sounds like some rather innocent, Beach Boys-lite track about some youngsters sock-hopping on the beach with a cooler full of pop:

But nope, we live in the 21st century and “shagging” now definitively means sex. So yeah, that tweet had to go, because otherwise, snarky millennials who know what Urban Dictionary is would get on his case — oh wait, too late for that.
