Highway to Hell

Indiana Congressman John Hostettler is mounting a moral campaign that will change the face of his fair state: he's attempting to change the name of I-69, a most immoral stretch of highway, to I-63. I shit you not. Apparently, Indiana's religious community can no longer abide something so irredeemably hedonistic, meaning it made them have oh so dirty, dirty thoughts. But Hostettler's reason for the name change is so ridiculous, so juvenile I can't believe he's not being laughed out of every public appearance he makes.
“Every time I have been out in the public with an ‘I-69’ button on my lapel, teenagers point and snicker at it. I have had many ask me if they can have my button. I believe it is time to change the name of the highway. It is the moral thing to do.”
I have a feeling teenagers have always laughed at Congressman Hostettler.
