It Was Fun While It Lasted

So last night I'm flipping through channels, occasionally coming back to the "Gay Super Bowl", as I like to call the Oscars. At one point, Melissa Etheridge wins an Oscar for Best Song About The End of the Earth, or something like that. Turns out, Melissa likes the ladies about as much as I do. Who knew?

So she goes up to accept her award, turning first to kiss a buxom blonde (ON THE LIPS!), and then, as if that wasn't bad enough, thanks "my wife" during her acceptance speech. Although I was thousands of miles away, I immediately felt as though something was amiss in my life. A few minutes latter my wife came down from our bedroom with a packed suitcase and a confused look on her face. She said "I don't know why, but our marriage feels like less than it used to be, and I'm leaving" I replied, "I agree, there's no use fightint it, have a nice life. Which kid do you want?" Then we divided the furniture and split up.

Damn you gay people! See what your unholy unions have done to us heteros!? This is on you Etheridge!!

Perhaps it says something about me and the level of gays in my life but, I must be the only person who watched the Gay Super Bowl and didn't think anything other than, "Oh, that was nice." when I saw the lip lock and the loving message she gave with her acceptance speech.

Yes, the sanctity of marriage is dissolving right before out eyes.

Please tell me you were kidding about not knowing Melissa's gay??

Okay, you were.

PG, you thought that, I thought that, but millions of other people averted their eyes, said 'that's disgusting" and then lapsed into an uncomfortable silence while wondering about their own deep, dark thoughts.

RSG, I also blame you and HG. And yes, I knew Melissa Etheridge is a lesbian years ago. I do want credit for liking her music even before she came out.

To save you from finding out later from someone else, I must confess to you that I am gay. I hope this doesn't do further damage to your marraige, and in the event that it does, I hope you know a good lawyer.

I have nothing to contribute...this post and the subsequent comments by all are just cracking me up.

Holy crap, Zoe! You're gay? That explains a lot.

I'm glad this post has brought Zoe and Phollower closer together.

Lil Sis, your mere presence is enough, even if you are a pinko.

Steven makes a good point...what the hell is wrong with you?

Wait, you were watching hoping to catch a peek of Jessica Biel, weren't you?

thanks for your well-wishes over on my blog. it helps to know that other, normal-type folks have gone before me and managed. anyway, if my friend waspy can do it on no sleep or food for three days, crazy with debilitating anxiety, then i'm sure i've got a shot.

by the way, sorry about your marriage. we gays won't stop until we've ruined all the fun for everybody!!!

Wasn't the hostess for the Oscars gay, too? - Lesbos are taking over! LOL

I'm new, I don't understand, are you really gay and is this blog about a marital breakup?

Curse that Etheridge woman. My obsession with her has ruined my life. She should go back to her farm.

Oh wait.

I meant Pepperidge.

I'd feel somewhat obliged to run off with her too if she thanked me in her Oscars speech.

funny post.
It's good to know I can visit your blog for a good laugh.

You can always count on the Oscars to promote that GD gay agenda!

Lil Bit, Ellen DeGeneres is gay? Wow, next I'll hear rumors that Jodi Foster is gay! Oh, wait, I've heard those rumors on 923 different blogs since the Oscars.

TK, Indeed you are new. No, I am not gay. I am a smartass. I am married, to a woman, and my marriage is as strong as it ever has been. Although my wife left me a note saying she'd taken my credit card this morning, so who knows how long that'll last. Hope that clears things up. By the way, you're winning the "best avatar" contest at the moment.

Pug, those Milano cookies have ruined almost as many marriages as Melissa Etheridge. Who I thik did ruin Lou Diamond Phillips marriage, but really, who cares?

JDR, remind me to thank you when I win an Oscar.

Rhonda, that's what we're here for. It sure ain't the money.

Trop, the gay agenda and Al Gore. Don't forget Al.
