Gay Thursday* 02/02/2006

Gay* Thursday -- February 2, 2006

The stars and production crew of the movie Brokeback Mountain, a movie about gay cowboys who eat pudding, are no doubt very gay* today.

The influence of the movie is unmistakable.

It has created a tourism interest in the state of Wyoming. They might have more than 100 visitors this year.

It has created a rash of new toys.

More importantly, it has been nominated for 8 Oscars, including best picture, actor and director. And given what I hear from learned insiders, it will win.


Yes, our society is without a doubt getting colorful and happy influences everywhere.


* Gay: 1 a : happily excited : MERRY b : keenly alive and exuberant : having or inducing high spirits 2 a : BRIGHT, LIVELY b : brilliant in color

Tourism in Wyoming? There's an oxymoron for you...along with 'gay cowboy.'

Does this mean the cowboy way has changed?

Does that make "Mommas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys" hate speech?

I think folks in Wyoming will be able to spot the Brokeback Mountain tourists. They'll be the ones asking, "Does this banadanna really go with these boots?" and saying, "Isn't that leather vest just so cuuuuute?"

Off-topic: I haven't been feeling, you know, gay in far too long. Am thinking about asking the doctor for medicine to help me overcome this problem.
