Brokeback Mounting

There is a movie coming out in December called "Brokeback Mountain," which everyone knows (or will know) as the "gay cowboy movie."

On behalf of comedians everywhere, let me say "thank you."

This movie, which a grand total of 11 people will see in the theatre, is the new cultural touchstone. Comedians everywhere should send the movie studio a stipend. This easily parodied concept is like Ishtar, and Bob Dole's Viagra commercial, and the "I've fallen, and I can't get up" lady all rolled into one tasty little comedy burrito.

Again, thank you, each and every one of you involved in the gay cowboy movie. When it comes time to do the movie where the clown gets raped, we'll speak again.

Maybe the gay cowboy is to gay men what firefighters are to hetero women. That's the only way it make sense.
On a related note Professor M.E. said, a few years ago, that gay cowboys were reffered to as "Bucks." How he gained that knowlege, being neither gay nor a cowboy, he would have found that out, well, I never had the courage to ask.

Is this the 2005 version of Midnight Cowboy? My parents didn't allow me to see that movie because of its content. It was dirty for its' day. Now it's shown uncut on regular tv. Don't want to watch it now - not dirty enough!

I'm thinking some Jake Howeveryouspellit and Heath Ledger action might get more than 11 viewers, at least from the fairer sex. ;)

Got to disagree, mommastar. Both the young ones are pretty, I'm sure. But man-on-man elements have never been exactly a pathway to box office gold.

Kind of ironic for me to post about the gay cowboy movie right after the lesbian cheerleader story. And all that the same week Texas decides not to recognize marriage between anybody but white baptists. Hmm.
