The newly married couple said that they were extremely happy to get married in the city of Taj Mahal, the monument of love and one of the Seven Wonders of the World."

road.jpg New play about gay Iranian teens executed in 2005 to open in Chicago: " The play tells the story of two boys coming of age, and struggling with their identities as Arab Iranians, and as typical teenagers longing to discover their place in the world. Ayaz Marhouni and Mahmoud Asgari, the two fifteen year old boys who may have been gay or may have been experimenting with their sexuality – like many teenagers do, get caught in a compromised position, publicly humiliated and tried in the Iranian legal system."

The leaks were also prohibited by rules of the Senate Ethics Committee; according to the rules of the Senate, anyone caught leaking such information could face expulsion from the body. These, then, were not the usual Washington disclosures: Discovered, they could have stopped the career of any Washington politician in his tracks."

He alleges that the barbs began after a sales manager discovered that he went to boarding school and now lived in the Sussex seaside town, which has a large gay population. Mr English, who has been married for 20 years and has three teenage children, decided to take legal action after his attendance at Brighton's Gay Pride parade wearing "skin-tight Lycra cycling shorts" was mentioned in the Thomas Sanderson Blinds in-house magazine."

  1. The people who spread the lie that Obama isn't a natural born citizen are not in touch with reality so they will be unfazed by the news from Hawaii. I imagine the excuse will be that Obama paid off the right people to get that announcement made.

  2. I'm almost embarrassed that with all the important news above I am commenting only to say that Ryan Reynolds is scorchingly hot.

  3. I'm sorry, Swedish dumbfucks, but the Taj Mahal is NOT one of the "Seven Wonders of the World."

    They are/were:

    The Colussus of Rhodes
    The statue of Zeus at Olympia
    The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
    The Great Pyramid of Giza
    The Tomb of King Masolus
    The Great Lighthouse at Alexandria
    The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

  4. Ryan Reynolds .... nice pit!

  5. Yeek is correct about the original Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. However, the New Seven Wonders of the World, as determined on July 7, 2007, include the Taj Mahal:

    Chichen Itza, Mexico
    Christ the Redeemer, Brazil
    Colosseum, Italy
    Great Wall of China, China
    Machu Picchu, Peru
    Petra, Jordan
    Taj Mahal, India
    Giza Pyramid Complex, Egypt (honorary - remaining ancient wonder)

  6. Both Yeek and DAVID D. are correct. But both of you forget the greatest wonder of the world: Tim Liggns' butt. Look him up on MuscleGallery. Amazing...and truly wondrous!

  7. David D. is correct in that there are many, many copycats who have made their own "Seven Wonders" lists. However, that does not mean that they are worthy of respect. Just a few of them include:

    Seven Wonders of the Industrial World
    Seven wonders of the underwater world
    Seven Wonders of the Medieval World....

    You can read about more of them (yawn) here:

    It's just another example of a great concept milked to the point of ridicule by the unimaginative. I suppose we'll have the "Seven Wonders of Banquet Halls" list soon so that people getting hitched at the Parsippany Marriott can claim they were married at "one of the Seven Wonders."

    I call bullshit.

  8. The story about the execution of two gay Iranians referred to them as Arab Iranians. Were they, in fact, Arabs in Iran or were they Persian?

  9. I hope Dole looses the election and the lawsuit. If she ends up homeless, she can always rely on a stiff one from the hubby.

  10. Yeek, the Taj Mahal was merely mentioned as part of the story that two Swedish lesbians got married in India. That certainly does not merit your arrogant and insulting remarks to them, especially since, as noted by your own second post, your first statement was not entirely correct.

    Congrats to the happy couple.

  11. Derrick from Philly,

    Thank You.

  12. Pity that the play about the gay Iranian teens is being directed by David Zak at Chicago's Athenaeum. He's a horrible director (pretty boy amateurs and gratuitous nudity are par for the course in his gay-niche projects), while the venue is neglected by those who follow theatre and unknown by everyone else. I look forward to a better production hopefully soon.

  13. RJ:

    Actually, I made those remarks ABOUT them, not TO them, but I still think they earned it. The "New Seven Wonders" list was created as a for-profit venture by travel agents. It's still bullshit, and I think they're still dumbfucks. And they're probably very happy, so I think they're more than even.

    By the way, the London sewer system is listed as a wonder on one of those lists. I don't recommend it as a spot for a destination wedding, but whatever works.
