This is why the internet is made of win. Someone started posting as Emile Durkheim on twitter, which got very popular and funny at ASA. Now, apparently, there is some sort of competition to come up with fake country song names based on Durkheimian phrases, e.g. “A boy named Suicide”, “I Got Friends in Low States of Moral Regulation”, and so on. You can watch it all breakdown in real time here. I may have to breakdown and start using Twitter “for reals” if this kind of humor keeps up.
