Onion Takes on Gays in the Military

Military Ban On Gays For Their Own Protection, Says General

This got around quite a bit yesterday but I didn't have a chance to post it. A general speaks out to the Onion News Network about the reasons for the ban on gays in the military.

  3. LMAO.....I just love the Onion.

    Can't wait until America's homosexuals wake up and watch this and start whining and screaming **outrage**.

  4. He's right. We are all precious little snowflakes.

  5. Love the Onion. Useless tidbit: the "General" once played a Sharper Image employee on Sex and the City. He helped Samantha exchange her vibrator (really, a neck massager--"Sharper Image doesn't sell vibrators").

  6. Since I'm so precious, I feel like I should be living in a gay wildlife preserve or at least someplace that will help me preserve my wild, gay sex life...

  7. I'm surprised they didn't go the "a world without gays" route... you know, the predictable "Who then will decorate our homes and create our indie music?"

  10. Almost as good as the interview with the 'General' was the 'news' scrolling along the bottom of the screen. My favorite: "Professor who worked on Manhattan Project requests that his remains be detonated in a nuclear...."
