“Homosexual Eases Into 100 Final at Olympic Trials”

posted by on June 30 at 10:16 AM

It seems the Christian news site OneNewsNow automatically changes the word “gay” into “homosexual” for its stories. So when sprinter Tyson Gay set a wind-aided record this weekend…well, something funny happened.

The same software at their site changes "Poe" to "Bealzebub Baphomet Satan."

Good times.

This is even funnier than Yahoo's "medireview".

The New York Times fashion section once noted the usefulness of "a little African-American dress".

Whereas, when I saw the headline "Gay runs fastest 100-meter race in history, but is denied official world record" on komotv.com, I was startled... I thought maybe there actually WAS really a Running of the Gays this whole time!!!

"I thought maybe there actually WAS really a Running of the Gays this whole time!!!"

What a mad, brilliant idea: unleash several hundred of us from a holding pen and let us chase straight guys through city streets, who will risk getting "impaled" on our "horns" if they are too slow.
