Nuckin' Futs - 2006 in review

Filed by Bil Browning | December 13, 2006 | 10:35 AM | comments

I thought ya'll might enjoy Jib-Jab's Year in Review. Their animations are always comedy home runs. I can't understand the part where they sing about alternative lifestyles though - anyone catch it?...Read More


Same as straight marriage

Those darn Presbyterians. Just as the Roman Catholics say we're super - except for that whole intrinsically disordered thing... Oh, and those sweet, Jesus-loving Baptists that passed the resolution to say "If you're not openly homophobic, you don't have any...Read More

Moment in gay history

Filed by Bil Browning | December 08, 2006 | 8:35 AM | comments

It never gets old, does it? Don't you wish this still happened more often? Hell, with the Patriot Act you'd probably get charged with terrorism now... "Self-proclaimed homosexuals" and "at least it was a fruit pie." Aaah, it doesn't...Read More
