At this point, should we call the Oxford English Dictionary people and see if they can add “Chris Hansened” into next year’s edition? I know it’s two words and all, but it’s so convenient and everyone knows exactly what it means. For example: the CHATTANOOGA TIMES FREE PRESS reports that a youth softball coach thought he was going to a local park to meet a 12-year-old girl for sex, but it turns out the local police had Chris Hansened him and he was arrested.
See how easy that is? We all understand what happened to 31-year-old Charles Casseday: there was no 12-year-old girl waiting at the park, as the whole thing was a sting operation set up by police, not unlike what happens to unsuspecting creeps on NBC’s “Dateline” when they think they are going to an empty house for sex with an underage kid only to discover host Hansen and about 30 cops waiting for him.
