  1. Their writers have mastered the single entendre. Maybe next week they'll work on prat falls and pies in the face.

    Amazing they performed this tedious crap in front of a live audience and weren't booed. Apparently it's always 1962 somewhere.

  2. Amazing get-ups. That must have taken hours and hours.

  3. Lighten up! Jeez. You guys are tooooo politically correct. Humor is a very individual and unpredictable thing from one person to the next. And satire especially so, I think. If you can't find the humor here, go to a political rally.

  4. Right, because only our advanced gay brains can understand satire....

  5. There was no live audience, it was taped - just like all the funny/original things on SNL. The actual live performances are excruciatingly unfunny and repetitive.

    The players are mostly gay-friendly but the result is something that doesn't work on any level. The homophobes say "Ew, gay". The gays say "stereotypical". Everybody else says, "What's the point?"

    Shout-out to Chris Colfer who had the best night of anyone (he didn't have to say anything!).

  7. Hilarious.

    And, Jon is the nicest, brightest and hottest guy in town.

    Lighten up.

  8. The early Batman and Robin comics were held up as recruitment books for homosexuality even though both were "straight". This series of cartoons are in the same mode. The "villains" are obsessed with every little nuance that would the AG team gay--just as people like Glen Beck or Rush Limbaugh would (except the names of the villains have been changed from Big Ass to Big Brain and Rat Boy to Lizardo)

  9. I think people need to lighten up. It's hilarious. And, yes, it's social commentary on those obsessed with figuring out whether someone's gay or not. As for any jokes made at our expense, lighten up. We can't take ourselves so seriously all the time. None of it was made in poor taste -- it's not as if the 'ambiguous' acts prevented them from catching the criminals, they were *how* they kicked butt. If it was in bad taste, it would have been in a completely different direction in that regard.

  10. Sexual ambiguity & Gay Hunting = hilarious... in 1992.

    Dated, Lame, & Tasteless.

  11. I've just never found this series funny. The jokes are obvious and stale; basically frat boy humor. I'm not offended, just bored---as I am with most SNL skits involving gays.

    It's not that I think gays are somehow above mockery---I love the character they have on Weekend Update who plays the uber-gay guide to NYC nightlife. But the jokes used in these skits are simply not that clever. I don't believe that most of the participants are antigay in any way. I just think it's sophomoric humor and could be a lot funnier. Last night's was more clever than all the previous ones, many of which were truly awful.

  12. I just wish someone like Zach Efron or Shia LeBouf had played Gary instead of Fallon.

  13. Who wouldn't want to take Jon Hamm from behind?

  14. The skit was hilarious.

  15. I had to force myself to come up with a comment. I see nothing wrong with AGD.

  16. To call the Ambiguously Gay Duo a minstrel show is more than a stretch, mostly because it puts this parody on the same level of offensiveness as the overtly racist blackface shows that often used slavery as a punchline. Plus, the label insinuates that everyone involved with the SNL bit is a bigot, which, given the pro-LGBT advocacy we’ve seen from the likes of Hamm and Colbert, is simply false.

  17. I Googled some old episodes yesterday. Some of them are patently offensive or bordering on it. For example the villain who's brought in when A/G go to a g ay bar for the first time and they dress up in YMCA outfits and the hovering green circular sidekick alien says a slur that would not be accepted in today's world and shouldn't have been accepted then. I was shocked it was in there but not surprised. Sad.

    I like what a previous commenter said which is probably the closest to the truth about all these skits: They don't hate, they just don't respect.

    Would this fly if the shoe were on the other foot? That's a valid question for debate discussion.

  18. You know, John Waters is right. Some of us gays are losing their sense of humor. Some folks are always angry about something.
