Favre’s Phone Photo Fiasco

October 7, 2010

Minnesota Vikings’ Quarterback Brett Favre has gotten into some trouble with his cell phone. It was reported that during his time with the New York Jets, Favre had sexted a female fan a picture of his duck.

Favre famously spends his off-seasons at his farm in his hometown of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. And on that farm he has a horse. And on that farm he has a pig. And on that farm he has a duck. While he loves everything about his farm, he loves his duck very much and usually refers to it as his “little friend” in conversation.

Sexting (short for “sending a text”) is not something that should be done carelessly. You could be costing yourself or your parents a lot of money without even knowing it, depending on your particular cell phone plan. This applies to both the sender and the receiver. This is especially the case with picture messages, which are larger files and therefore require sending more data from phone-to-phone. You should always ask permission from your parents before sending a text or, also known as, “sexting.”

Favre is known for being very kind to his fans. This particular fan was Jenn Sterger, who had joined the New York Jets as an in-house sideline reporter. She does not have any particular problem with ducks, she just never really asked to see his duck and found it a bit odd for him to do so unannounced.

Cell phones are a privilege, not a right. It is important to be considerate of others when using your phone.
