    Idiots of 2007

    Just read this and enjoyed it so I thought I'd post this link. I like the one about the librarian. He would fit right in at the NCAA.

    I won't lie, but the Republican gay scandals are hilarious to me.

    I think they are hilarious as well. Everyone is always giving Barney Frank a hard time, but at least he's open an honest about his lifestyle, instead of playing footsie in airport bathrooms.

    That's why it's funny. Just come out instead of using lame excuses like "I have a wide stance" or "I'm afraid of being surrounded by black people." That last one is puzzling though, because being racist seems to be less acceptable than being gay anymore.

    I've narrowed up my stance considerably these days. This fall there was some pretty funny banter going on in the bathrooms at Jack Trice like, "Keep your feet under your own stall" or "Watch that wide stance, buddy". Lots of laughter.

    There are now signs in the bathrooms in Minneapolis detailing what NOT to do. I guess nobody has an excuse now.

    Leave the guy alone, he is not gay, he just has a wide stance.

    No, I'm not. I was flying through there the other day, sitting next to a couple at the bar who were going to Vegas and apparently hadn't heard about it, and they didn't know what the signs were about. It was amusing to fill them in.

    Wasn't "Wide Stance" guy, the guy in the article is "Afraid of being surrounded by black people" so he paid an undercover cop $20 to give the cop "services"

    I'll see if I can snap a picture next time I'm through. I think I've got a flight through there in a week or two.

    They might have gotten rid of them. I know they are re-doing some of the bathrooms and putting full-length stall dividers in, so they won't be needed by then.

    Those pants must have had gold thread or something. Maybe they were a fetosh to win cases with.
