Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy

Seems Hollywood has taken the words of this song literally and produced a “gay cowboy” movie set in Wyoming. “Brokeback Mountain” is apparently contending for an Oscar spot according to recent news articles. We’re assured of a “super controversy” if it does. Really? Why? Homosexuality is new to humans? Are we shocked to learn that even, *gasp*, the cowboy profession has been infiltrated by the gay community? Homosexuality has been around since before humans crawled out of the primordial ooze yet this is a shocker?

How is this a controversy? OH WAIT…Silly me…it’s a movie. They’re trying to sell tickets. (smacks forehead) ouch It’s already working for the Wyoming Travel and Tourism Division, the agency is already hearing “a buzz that people in other countries are expressing interest in visiting Wyoming because of the film.”

I give my own Blarney Award to the funniest quote; “the movie’s gotten rave reviews from the international community, I don’t know if they’re more tolerant or something, but they’re viewing it as a great Western movie.”

Or something, indeed.
