The TWSS Archives: MSNBC’s “Teabagging” Report

Date: April 13, 2008
Time: 8PM
Location: MSNBC
Source: thinkprogress.org
Description: Guest host, clearly aware of the meaning behind the TWSS, delivers a 2:40 minute story in which the TWSS is repeated over and over, including variations on the TWSS (for example: “Teabag Mouthpieces” and “That’s teabagging in a nutshell”) to hilarious effect. However, unlike host, almost no one referenced in story has any idea that a TWSS is even happening, which is how less-assuming phrases such as “We are going to be right in the middle of these teabaggers” is even possible.
