RoadBan on sales of poppers forces closure of Canada's largest gay store chain, Priape: “For us that represented a huge amount of sales and profit, so that’s what triggered it all,” Leblanc says. “It’s not so much percentage of sales, but the gross profit it brought in, and proportionately it was very significant.”

RoadHarry Reid and Obama made up before the shutdown stand-off, and that made all the difference: "Each more mindful of the other's strategic vision, Reid and Obama made a mutual commitment to legislative stubbornness. A week after the meeting, Reid threatened to gut the filibuster if Republicans didn't let through a slate of executive nominees. Republicans caved. Looking forward, the two vowed to steadfastly oppose any effort to tinker with the president's health care law as part of a continuing resolution to keep the government running. And when it came time to raise the debt ceiling weeks later, they would refuse to negotiate altogether."

RoadWhy can Neil Patrick Harris say that's "too gay" and straight people can't? "Words like “Mary,” “girl” and even that commonly used B-word are sometimes used as terms of endearment among gay men, notably those of our generation.

"Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have devised a hair restoration method that can generate new human hair growth, rather than simply redistribute hair from one part of the scalp to another.

  1. Just when you thought Andy Cohen couldn't get any more gross.

  2. 1) Awesome banksy.
    2) NOT THIS AGAIN, First, straight people can absolutely say "too gay" or "mary", do it with any amount of flair and there you go. Life is in no way fair and if you think for one second it should be, then you are part of the problem and should fix yourself before trying to fix others.

  3. I never even heard the term 'Mary' honestly people are just too sensitive nowadays.

  4. Jamie, are you like 3 years old? Or really super-protected?

    Vin Diesel i will never understand. But goes to show that anybody can make it in America.

  5. I am sure the gay community in Canada is pissed they now have to smoke weed instead of take poppers to bottom now.

    Except me, Tinkerbelle. There's been a life long conspiracy by the atheists to hold me back. And I only go to church for funerals.

  8. Ummm.... Why can black people say the "N" word and white people can't? Same concept for straight people using "too gay" and "Mary" etc.

  9. "Owl City designed many of the new sounds in Apple's iOS 7."

    So that's why my iPhone sounds like the Postal Service.

  10. Someone needs to tell Little Kiwi about that baldness cure!

  11. Glenn Back has all the "earmarks" of a fascist propaganda minister --most notably, the endless repeating of lies.

    Posted by: DannyEastVillage | Oct 22, 2013 6:45:04 PM

  12. I don't feel comfortable knowing that Glenn Beck shares my initials AND my attraction to the President's ears. Confusing the word "earmarks" for hallmarks" was obviously was a Freudian slip on his part.

    And yes,Danny, the failed comic Beck would prefer a Fascist to a Marxist any day. Fascists have a history of wearing cooler uniforms.

  13. Hmm, I've heard gay gays refer to other gay guys as "girl" or "Mary" in my day, but have never heard a word of, nor even knew about the existence of the Polari slang language. Was that even a thing in America?

    Posted by: Zlick | Oct 22, 2013 7:24:13 PM

  14. Polari wasn't really big in America. Mostly a British thing. American gays have different code words. I had a gay and straight guy over a couple weeks ago and it was amazing how much the gay guy (who I'd never met before) and I communicated right in front of the straight guy. When I told the straight guy later, he didn't believe me, then got angry. Minorities have always done this.

    My gaydar is terrible, but he said two things in the first few minutes that I knew even the gay-friendliest straight guy wouldn't know or pick up on, and after that we just played it as a game.

  15. Whew, thanks Paul R. I'd hate to think I was that clueless as to have missed Polari right in front of my ears here in the States.

  16. I can't stand when gay men refer to each other in feminine pronouns and such. Being gay doesn't make you female.

  17. @ "Someone needs to tell Little Kiwi about that baldness cure!"

    Nope, not me. Nice try, Rick.

    Rick, you and I are both 55 years old. Shall we talk about our hair follicle challenges.

    You're funnier when you insult me as David Hagatha Hearne. That old cow you invented has a sense of humor...because she's a drunk.
