Thank you for a post about a dwarf because ever since I saw Corteo I was wondering, what is the politically correct term for people of short stature these days and here is the perfect place to ask.

I think they prefer to call themselves Micromericans.

He's kinda hot. For a midget...

I've heard "little person" is the preference time and again over dwarf or midget.

Oh sweet Jesus, is Dems threatening to vote for McCain the new "moving to Canada"?

I heard that too, D. But I always remembered it as a Billy Barty line from the movie Foul Play, right before he was tossed in a trash can and rolled into San Francisco Bay, so I've treated it as suspect.

He's a hottie...which leads to the question, where do all the hot, gay little men hang out in Seattle?

We are, after all, the Emerald City...

Holy fuck.

You just earned your name, MS.

That midget is ripped

Well that settles the question of what happened to Josh Feit.

WTF, Napoleon?!?!

Basically, what you're implying, is that little people/midgets/dwarves are freakish monsters and incapable of being sexually attractive beings. Shame on you.

That dude is cute; doesn't matter to me if he's 4 feet tall or 6 feet tall...ripped is ripped.

And you're just asking for a car load of little people to jump you on a street, drag you down an alley and anally rape the shit out of you while chanting, "one of us; one of us"

No, what I was saying is that most people don't post on SLOG looking for Munchkin Orgies.

That's what Manhunt is for.

@11: Gooble gobble, gooble gobble!

That Jell-O story is horrifying. It's ironic that that sort of thing is perfectly cool in the middle of the city's most historic district, while strippers, who I have to say are more dignified than that (almost anything would be), are vilified.

I would do that dwarf.

Whether he prefers to be called "dwarf" or a "little person," I'm pretty sure, in this situation, it wouldn't be long before I would address him as, "Thank you, shir, may I have shome more?"

Seriously, he's hot--hot enough even to make me drink Jagermeister.

If JagerCorp's too squeamish to deploy this marketing strategy in the U.S., some other purveyor of hootch really should jump on it.

I'm sorry that small people keep getting exploited for stupid MTV shows, bad movies, and liquor promotions... but, this little dude if a mother fucking hottie!

The little person is HAWT.

Posted by RG | June 4, 2008 9:01 AM

It was a joke, numbnuts...

dwarf=Munchkin=Emerald City=Oz reference

did I really have to spell it out for you?

Posted by michael strangeways | June 4, 2008 9:41 AM

You owe an apology to all Munchkin-Americans.
