We don’t actually celebrate that as our anniversary, and that marriage was annulled, because the first few were, but people did write us to say 'Happy Anniversary!' which is how we remember, but our anniversary is in December…for sort of when we knew that we would be together…forever."

 roadGay couple attacked by curry vendor at Sydney Royal Easter Show: "Richard said that when the couple went to try one of the sauces offered for public taste testing, they were told by a female worker at the stall: 'No, it’s only for mums and dads. It’s only for people who have families.' When the couple asked why they were being discriminated against, the worker replied: 'I can discriminate against who I want – it’s my product. Now get lost.' The couple were subsequently offered the product by another employee at the stall, but after trying it, the employee who had ordered them to leave threw a pot of curry at them, narrowly missing Richard. She then went to throw a glass jar at the couple before they retreated."

  3. The Peoria where the wristband was at issue is in Arizona; it's not Peoria, IL.

  5. I thought Miss California was no longer going to be a topic of discussion, since she doesn't merit the attention? Instead there are three references in this section alone.

    I would much rather read about Marilyn, and that's saying something.

  7. So another bubble headed miss america thinks what she has to say matters?

    That lady with the curry is lucky she's in Sydney because if she behaved like that in San Francisco she wouldn't live to tell her side of her pathetic story.

  8. I wouldn't have tasted that crap anyway. I hate curry.

  9. Please stop posting about Miss California. I never needed to know who this bitch is and I certainly don't need to keep hearing about her.

  10. Miss California actually does have the right to express her opinion.

    I am , for my own reasons, glad that she said what she said.

    1/ She lost the crown
    2/ At least we found out before she becaime Miss USA and said those things later to a group of school kids somewhere.
    3/ The reaction to the whole thing has kept Gay marriage in the news where it must stay if we are ever to achieve national recognition of same sex marriage.

    All in all, a good thing.

    Oh yeah, I never thought I'd say this ,but, thanks Perez.

  11. "I entered pageants in the 'good ole days' way back when it was a bad thing to be a black contestant -- but it was considered a very good thing to be wholesome, moral and honest."

    Since when has bigotry ever been wholesome or moral?

    BTW, I have a friend in Carlsbad, CA (San Diego area) who has this to say about Miss Barbie's momma:
    "My neighbor Dick C. of Oceanside, Ca. told me that he hooked-up with the mother of the homo-phobic loser about 9 years ago for a one night stand of unprotected sex, right after her divorce. He told me that she gave him the most incredible blow-job that he's ever had in his life. This good christian woman from a family of Italian Catholics, not only got divorced, but was going around hooking up with men for long nights of sex.
    Francine came to my door early the next morning to introduce herself as Dicks new girlfriend. She was wearing a tight leopard skirt with silky blouse with her bosom exposed. Horrified at what she had said, Dick immediately dumped her.
    I wonder if this gay hating woman with good conservative christian morales, instilled in her daughter the value of giving someone a good blow-job"

    Now she's dating Michael Phelps...I wonder if she's taking one toke over his line....

  12. Oh, and Derek, you do have a point (always glad to read your comments). Had she kept her mouth shut and became Head Barbie, she would have represented America on her level -- coming across as all wholesome and moral while spewing bile and lies to impressionable kids. The devil wears a lovely face.
