America has become so horrible a place that Christians can’t tell fag jokes any more. Whatever do you mean, Mark Steyn? I mean that Bob Hope once told this bell-ringer:
“I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.”
For Hope, this was an oddly profound gag…
But it’s no longer acceptable. Then there’s this:
Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra kept this one in the act for a quarter-century. On stage, Dino used to have a bit of business where he’d refill his tumbler and ask Frank, “How do you make a fruit cordial?” And Sinatra would respond, “I dunno. How do you make a fruit cordial?” And Dean would say, “Be nice to him.”
But they tell me it’s wrong. Now I see that you’re all giggling, how very surprising. Well I suppose this is as good a time as any, so here goes: The drunkards fornicators and homosexuals in America are bad. Call me crazy if you like, but it’s time that somebody at National Review said it.
