On Monday at Miller Plaza, Senator Bob Corker and experts from Google told local small businesses that did not have websites to ask their kids to help set them up.

“In Tennessee, 59 percent of all small businesses don’t yet have a website,” said Corker. “For heaven’s sake, just ask your kids how to do it. This isn’t rocket science, people.”

“If you don’t have kids, then ask your nieces and nephews, or your neighbor’s kids,” said Corker. “Working with computers is just second nature to kids today, and I bet they’d do it for a package of Oreos and a 2-liter of Mountain Dew.”

“Theoretically, anyone who has basic computer skills and can read and follow simple directions can make a daggum website,” said Corker. “But if that’s still too difficult, then just make your kids do it for you.”

When asked where a person could find directions on creating a website, Corker rolled his eyes and said, “Let me Google that for you.”
