"Homosexuals Are Strong"

So says James, The Southern Redneck on this season’s Survivor.  He had just been bested, twice, by Coby, The Gay Guy in a physical challenge and was humiliated by the defeat.  His rationale in justifying this incredible and surprising affront to his masculinity was that it makes sense because homosexuals go to the gym a lot and work out, so of course they are strong.  As I watched that, I imagined civilised southerns just shaking their head and silently cursing him for squirting such a huge stream of Ignorant Brand Lighter Fluid to the Stereotype Barbecue.
Then, on The Apprentice, the Stereotype Barbecue kept on burnin’ as John (the Vince Vaughan of this season’s group) seemingly went out of his way to cook Male Chauvinist Hot Dogs.  He and a couple of female team-mates were to meet with some Rock Stars and he all but told them to whore themselves up to please the male rockers.  He called one of them “the fluffer”.  I had kind of liked John (much like I like Vince Vaughan) until then, but he lost me with his stupid “women are best when they sell themselves as sex” mentality.  Glad he got fired.  Too bad that Trump seems to share John’s basic philosophy about females in business.
Also on The Apprentice, I must say that George and Carolyn (Trump’s assistants) absolutely rocked in this episode.  George owned the final board meeting. He was fantastic.

    Best quote about George – and equally true of Carolyn: “George kicks so much ass he needs special shoes”.I watch both shows with my daughter. When someone – like Stephanie or Angie or uber-stud Tom does something over and above, we'll turn to one another and say “Special shoes”.Rob this week on TAR: special shoes.

    You may remember, for many years, the toughest guy in Ch`town was a homosexual. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Really…it is ok!


  3. Rob says:

    I don't remember that, Wayne.

    “Twas just a rumour, Wayne. I am not now, nor have I ever been, gay. NTTAWWT.
