I know it’s a bit much, but bear with me. On today’s show we’re cheering our little lungs out for pride, yes, pride because California’s Supreme Court declared that gay couples in the nation’s most populous state can marry– a monumental victory for the gay rights movement Thursday that was greeted with tears, hugs, kisses and at least one instant proposal of matrimony.
We have MUCH to celebrate. It’s always exciting to see the dominoes of gay rights inevitably fall in a good direction.
Also, what’s very funny is that CNN had their “Dewey Defeats Truman” moment when they aired the wrong story, announcing the California Supreme Court ruling against the gays and lesbos.
I’ve worked in news media for over ten years and I know a lot of news stories are written and developed with both results prepared ahead of time. It is wonderful to see one of the big titans get it 100% wrong.
Oh happy day!
On today’s show we brought some cheerleaders to celebrate in the joy, Mary La Pierre and Ricky Martel of the Chicago Spirit Brigade, a fundraising cheerleading group that performs at just about every gay thing that happens in the Midwest.
Listen as we talk with Mary and Ricky about the ridiculousness of vegan sugar, where to meet DILF’s in Chicago and odd biological phenomena, like the gecko who got trapped inside a chicken’s egg.
Dolly Parton is WAY pissed off, since shock jock Howard Stern edited her new audio book to make her say all sorts of filthy things, including her taste for “n-word cock” and that “Kenny Roger’s beard smells like boy’s cum.”
The Howard Stern show regularly uses altered clips from “Star Trek” actor George Takei, William Shatner, Oprah Winfrey and others.
As unsettling this may be, it’s also great publicity for Dolly’s new book and is sure to guarantee a rise in book sales. Is Dolly faking it or is she sincerely mad? Who knows, but remember, Don Imus lost his job for calling black women basketball players names on his show. Will Howard Stern fall from grace over his folly with Dolly?
Either way, Dolly has issued her own response, saying: “If there was ever going to be a lawsuit, it’s going to be over this… just wanted you to know that I am completely devastated by this.”
We take the time to give you the lines that sound divine because they rhyme- Feast of Fools.
