In light of the tragic events of May 20, 2013, when a massive tornado struck Moore, OK and killed at least 24 people, the Westboro Baptist Church, perpetually high in the standings for 'Worlds Biggest Scumbags,' made the website GodHatesOklahoma.com.

A hacker known only as The Jester wasn't having any of WBC's crap though. He stole the domain name right out of the church's hands, made the above image of Jesus flipping the birdy as the site's welcome screen, and redirects it after 5 seconds to this page.

Well done, Jester. Well. Done.

Bath salts? In MY Angry Whopper? Say it ain't so! No word yet as to who is behind the hacking, but I think it's safe to say that the folks at the BK PR department are not having a good day.

Failbook: In Which Nine Major League Baseball Teams Had Their Facebook and Twitter Hacked
- -

Last night, a hacker found his or her way into the social media accounts of at least nine different Major League Baseball Teams, posting status updates and tweets that ranged from the crude to the (admittedly) hilarious. Curse you, illegal criminal of cyberspace, for making me laugh!

All teams have since deleted the offending posts. The Chicago Cubs even followed up with the tweet: "For the record, the #Cubs are big fans of Bill Murray. #NotHacked."

The hacker is still at large (watch out, NHL!)

Update: Deadspin reports that the MLB Facebook and Twitter accounts were not hacked, but were instead at the mercy of a rogue employee working for the "Advanced Media" arm of the MLB (which collectively manages all its teams' online presence).

The posts may have been an inside joke and not meant for public eyes, but Deadspin also notes that employees working for the social media arm of the MLB are grievously underpaid.
