Why not propose it on Mars?

Actually, they're way off track, gay sex is in the moon, not on it.

"Not only does it ban gay people from having sex on the Moon, but it also provides for automatic funding for manned space exploration every year"

Hmmmm........... This might be a good idea after all.

Is there *anything* that you actually laugh at? How can you not see the humor in this link?

and all Moon-bound rockets would be emblazoned with the legend "This Is NOT A Phallic Symbol"

Not funny?

Any link given a page title as bad as this one has no chance of actually being funny.

Meanwhile, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court orders all citizens to gay marry.

Laughing at humor with the word "gay" in it may cause you to turn gay. Can't take that chance.

John Kerry's campaign responds quickly:

Bush Ban on Gay Lunar Sex Appropriate, but Unnecessary.

"We all agree our astronauts shouldn't send man-probes into man-craters," said Sen. Kerry. But why is the President banning gay moon-sex, while preparing to send American men on a long, hard journey to a pink planet?"

I can see the attempt. But is a link to a personal blog of someone trying to be as funny as the Onion (and coming a bit short) really a FPP?

I don't usually defend links, (I think it's better to see how they do in the wild) but this is funny stuff. It's a parody of recent news that presents the current situation in an absurdist light. So not everyone thought it was funny. Cool, that happens. But is there something wrong with posting things from "personal blogs" now? If there is, that sounds a tad elitist.

This is dumb, though. Everyone knows that outer space (or, more precisely, zero g) is one of only two places where guys can release their inner queerboi animal instincts with absolutely no reprisal whatsoever.

Well not anymore.

stonerose, too funny!

I especially liked the faux Reuters take on Scott McClelland, who is rapidly becoming the "Comical Ali" of 1600 PA Ave. The Poor Man has a sharp ear for the narrative diction of those he lampoons. (you, too, stonerose)
