CYBERSPACE — A tweet from adult star, Vicky Vette, recently landed her on CNN and the front page of Funny or Die. During a segment on the Whitehouse use of Twitter hashtags and the current payroll tax crisis facing America, one of her raunchy tweets was mistakenly aired by CNN News.
As detailed in the Funny or Die piece, CNN was examining the Whitehouse's use of twitter hashtags to drive home the point that average Americans would miss the #40dollars in each of their paychecks if a payroll tax compromise was not reached.
Vette's humorous tweet stated that if all of her followers gave her '#40dollars' she would give them all oral sex. It quickly became one of the most popular tweets on the subject and was mistakenly aired by CNN. This appears to have caused much joy to the folks at Funny or Die, which ran with the story on the front page of its website for five days. Of viewers who cast a vote, 92 percent thought it was funny.
"You can't plan stuff like that,” Vette says, “I fool around with hashtags on Twitter to keep it fun for followers. To end up on CNN and Funny or Die is pretty cool. I'm just relieved that people who read the Funny or Die piece thought it was funny, too. It would have sucked if they had voted to 'Die.’ I guess all my followers were in on the #40dollars joke. I have yet to get $40 bucks from anyone, even though the payroll tax deal was reached. Let's face it, the chances of me being on CNN unless I have sex with Charlie Sheen or run for governor are zero, so I'll take it. I'm just bummed my mother watches Fox News… she missed it."
