We are so gay. I love this.

Posted by Tart | March 26, 2008 9:25 PM

If that is ECB, then I totally get her warped political sense, and general depravity.

Posted by Karlheinz Arschbomber | March 26, 2008 9:37 PM

so many people on that site are ugly.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | March 26, 2008 9:43 PM

... so is leno. in fact, several of 'em look like his relatives

Posted by cineaste | March 26, 2008 9:52 PM

This reminds me of the time back in '91 or '92 when gay people protesting the filming of Basic Instinct in no way reinforced the stereoptype that they're oversensitive and whiny.

Posted by El Seven | March 26, 2008 10:02 PM

Actually, ECB's pretty cute. She looks like a geisha.

Posted by fwoosh | March 26, 2008 10:05 PM

Ah, I love the smell of staged collective indignation in the morning. It makes me feel so ... morally superior.

Posted by David Wright | March 26, 2008 10:08 PM

The HOLIDAY CHEER on the box in the background is a nice touch.
In other, I'd have Erica Barnett's babies, if she were so gracious as to let me. Meow.

We may be ugly, but we have excellent grammar.

Posted by Tart | March 26, 2008 10:22 PM

Ah, I love the smell of sneering sarcasm in the morning, especially when gay people say fuck you to homophobia. It makes me feel so ... aromatically superior.

Posted by Irena | March 26, 2008 10:33 PM

Okay. I think this is awesome. Dan--your photo's totally cute. And so is Mr. Maupin's. Speaking of Maupin, I'm in San Francisco right now and can't figure out how anyone can live anywhere else. This place is perfect. I love it here. But that could be because when I left MI a few days ago we were in the middle of getting 7" of snow.

So, anyway. Good site. Screw Jay Leno.

Posted by Michigan Matt | March 26, 2008 10:49 PM

I don't see much good coming out of this except that it got Erica to smile a little bit, and that makes it all worth it.

Posted by elenchos | March 26, 2008 11:00 PM

Erica looks straight to me:)

Maybe just wishful thinking fom an me?

Ah, I love the smell of my soaked armpits in the late evening, especially when I've just spent forty-five minutes on a treadmill. It makes me feel so ... pheromonally superior.

You should try lugging concrete block for minimum wage, or pulling squeegees in a t-shirt sweat shop. The sweat means more that way, you should try it. Guaranteed the best workout you ever got, plus the weight loss plan is good when you can no longer afford food.

Take a minimum wage job and donate your free time to something better.

Yup...People do that at the AFU in Bremerton. You should try it.

Posted by b'town Gabe | March 26, 2008 11:28 PM

Man, Armistead Maupin looks seriously pissed. Every time I've ever met him he's seemed like such a congenial guy. Guess he's not amused by Leno's humor.

Great site.

Posted by Reverse Polarity | March 26, 2008 11:39 PM

Yeah, that explains a lot.

Posted by Gomer Bolstrood | March 26, 2008 11:41 PM

I see you're censoring posts now. That's it for me. Goodbye, Bushies.

Posted by Fifty-Two-Eighty | March 26, 2008 11:42 PM

that site is awesome.

Posted by Etteloc | March 26, 2008 11:48 PM

That ECB pic ironically sums up all her writing too.

Posted by Gomez | March 27, 2008 12:12 AM


No wonder!

ECB is just a homely angry horny little girl!!


Posted by ecce homo | March 27, 2008 12:22 AM

ECB, usually i'm a bitter critic to most everything you post, but seeing you flipping me the bird... well, that just warms my heart.

Bless you sister! *sniff*

Posted by UNPAID BLOGGER | March 27, 2008 1:04 AM

What long fingers you've got Dan....

Posted by MrEdCT | March 27, 2008 3:53 AM

I don't watch Jay Leno.. ever. What did he do to arouse this communal finger flagging? Sorry if I appear terribly untrendy.

Posted by Bob | March 27, 2008 4:25 AM

ECB stole boxes from the Post Office! This is an incriminating picture!

Posted by Skip | March 27, 2008 7:23 AM

Aw, I'd never pictured ECB so cute!

Posted by Megan W | March 27, 2008 7:26 AM

She kinda looks like Hillary's daughter.

Posted by thomastone | March 27, 2008 7:46 AM

Oh Dan...mmmmm...

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 27, 2008 8:02 AM

The writers strike must have been left Leno mentally damaged. Mocking gay people is the last resort of the comically challenged.

Posted by Vince | March 27, 2008 8:07 AM

I could see if Leno started lisping at him or something, but jeez. One little thing and we're going to buy a freaking domain and make a web site.

Posted by The CHZA | March 27, 2008 8:07 AM

As this takes off and gets big, Dan?

Remember to properly credit that kinda- stoned looking guy who started it.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | March 27, 2008 8:14 AM

Ewww...That's ECB?

OK, that explains alot.

"Drive on, Sir. Those are not my legs!"

Posted by Have Some Kibble, City Planner Pants | March 27, 2008 8:21 AM

That Marc guy below Dan is arguably the hottest of them all. I will find him.

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 27, 2008 8:28 AM

hey napoleon. read the fucking credits on the website in question before you get all holy and fucktarded. the site is clearly credited to that slightly stoned looking guy and some fat bitch, not dan savage.

Posted by cruze | March 27, 2008 8:29 AM

Testy, testy!

Looks like someone here needs an attitude adjustment.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | March 27, 2008 8:33 AM

Thanks! They posted my photo this morning!

Jay Leno, you suck!

Posted by Nick | March 27, 2008 8:41 AM

Dear ECB,

You're cute! That is all.

Posted by Free for lunch? | March 27, 2008 8:52 AM

I think I'm in love...

Posted by Hernandez | March 27, 2008 9:18 AM

That picture actually doesn't do her justice.... she's much cuter in person.

Posted by Jimmy Legs | March 27, 2008 9:38 AM

I think Erica is cute too!

Posted by Jason | March 27, 2008 10:00 AM

uh, I don't see how you can call those "gay looks"...I don't see any dick, splooge, poppers, and there's not a rum and coke or feather boa in sight.


Posted by michael strangeways | March 27, 2008 10:05 AM

i often appreciate barnett's writing contributions to the stranger and slog.

Posted by infrequent | March 27, 2008 10:17 AM

I like the self-portrait photos that make it seem like people are very angry at their living rooms. Or, their bondage bear (otterevil). Will someone make a giant animated GIF? I smell a meme coming on. (Hopefully that's not tsm I smell.)

Posted by squidoo | March 27, 2008 10:18 AM

any word from jay?

Posted by superyeadon | March 27, 2008 10:24 AM

ECB's wonderful, but if that's her gayest look she really needs to work on it.

Posted by Will in Seattle | March 27, 2008 10:31 AM

wow.. if you scroll down and see Dan from the nose up.... looks a lot like Bill Nye!

Posted by the science guy | March 27, 2008 11:02 AM

@18 I thought the same thing. I've met Armistead and I've seen him have to deal with assholes, but I've never seen him look so pissed. He could totally take Jay Leno down.

Great idea! Jay Leno is a tool.

Posted by KC | March 27, 2008 11:53 AM

Awww, Erica is so cute.

Posted by Citizen Insane | March 27, 2008 12:27 PM

erica is a doll, but that's not a very gay photo. any proper queen would have tidied up the background. all that clutter just reeks of heterosexuality.

Posted by brandon | March 27, 2008 1:47 PM

Dumb? Yes. Unfunny? To be sure? But offensive? Not so much.

Posted by Blacksheep | March 27, 2008 3:28 PM

@37...THANKS! and a happy morning to you :)

Posted by Jumbles | March 27, 2008 3:58 PM

Geezus, Maupin's looking old.

Was anybody else completely bummed by "Maybe The Moon" or entirely pissed off at the ending of "The Night Listener?" I *LOVE* the "Tales" books but I haven't read "Tolliver" because so much of his output after the original 6 "Tales" volumes has been so disappointing. He's still a great storyteller, the stories have just gotten sadder and darker.

I'd love to catch up with "Mouse," but I'm afraid it would just disappoint.

Posted by Wolf | March 27, 2008 4:27 PM

Someone should send Leno a bunch of disturbing scene-of-the-crime photos of gay folks beaten and/or killed and title them "Gayest Look".

Posted by Sheri | March 27, 2008 4:27 PM

Honestly I found it was the combination of Dan and Erica that made so much deep sense and I have kind of felt annoyed at Leno for Hosting Arnold without hosting his democratic opponent. Leno trys to play slick hip liberal, but little do we realize that he is the last famous charismatic bastion of 1980's right wing computer youth. Our Slog Heroes have put themselves on the line to call a Tool a Tool. Beauty happens in many forms.
