HBO — to Bob 2

Bearable Bob: “I think to make attending Brokeback Mtn a litmus test for the tolerance of homosexuality is beyond absurd. It’s, it’s, it’s BLOGSURD. I’m incredibly tolerant of homosexuals but I have no INTENT on seeing that movie. I want my cowboys stupid and insensitive. I want them saving up their buffalo nickels for trollops in Dodge City…NOT THIS.”

DFO: Bob, this is why I missed you from pre-Christmas on. I couldn’t have said this without being banished to outer darkness as an incorrigible Neanderthal (which, come to think of it, may not be that far off). Your comment is a coffee-spitter. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship — ah, a beautiful platonic one, that is.
