ATLANTA -- US Rep. Hank Johnson (D-4th) took to the House floor Tuesday, expressing his opposition to a bill allowing companies like Netflix to share customers' movie selections on their Facebook pages.

But the Congressman, who has a history of making statements that bring him ridicule, used some rather interesting examples of what might be in his Netflix queue.

"Now I, myself, don't want folks to know that I have ordered up 'Debbie Does Dallas.' I may not mind if they know that I ordered up 'J. Edgar.' But I don't want them to know that I ordered 'Good Girls Gone Bad.'"

Johnson went on to suggest that former federal Judge Robert Bork might have some unique video viewing habits.

"And I certainly wouldn't want, on behalf of Judge Robert Bork - I certainly wouldn't want anyone to be able to uncover the fact that he's been ordering up relentlessly, the film 'The Bad Boys of Summer.'"

The bill Johnson was speaking against was passed by the House, despite Johnson's comments.
