A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Tom Tunney's delicious cinnamon buns and how I had never tasted Richard Ingram's buns.
I still haven't tasted Richard Ingram's buns, although I did go along and meet him at one of his fundraisers at Cell Block. I'm neither one way or the other on the 44th Ward election, but I have to say I was very impressed with Mr. Ingram. Lots of good ideas and a great sense of humor. He also didn't speak to me in that annoying I'm-after-your-vote kind of way. We just sat at the bar and had a chat. I liked him.
Wouldn't it be a pisser if Ingram and Tunney split the gay vote and that straight guy won? I wonder what his buns taste like!!
It doesn't surprise me that Diana Ross was arrested for 'extreme' DUI, what surprises me is that she was arrested outside a video store, where she told the arresting officer she was renting a video.
People like Diana Ross don't rent videos!! Can you imagine standing in line at Blockbuster and Diana Ross walks in to pick up a bag of microwave popcorn and a copy of Eight Legged Freaks. You'd never see Cher doing that …
Although, a friend of mine used to work at Toys R Us and he told me that Michael Jackson once walked into the store.
Maybe it's a Black thing. Maybe Black singers get mega-famous and then go shopping just like the rest of us. Maybe one day I'll be sitting in the Golden Angel diner on Montrose and Lincoln and Smokey Robinson and what's left of the Miracles will walk in … or one of the Vandellas.
Ananova in the U.K. reports that 'a German mayor has caused outrage after refusing to meet a gay couple from a special edition of the German version of Blind Date.
'Markus Stork, 31, from Bielefeld and his date Patrick Schaefer, 25, from Wiesbaden, were flown to Bad Alexandersbad in Bavaria by helicopter after appearing on the first gay version of the Herzblatt show.
'However when they arrived Mayor Walter Lehner refused to receive the pair at the town hall … '
Joerg Pilawi, the presenter of the show, is urging people to boycott the town of Bad Alexandersbad.
Doesn't it piss you off when you're asked to boycott something you never intended to do in the first place? It's like when we were asked to boycott Wendy's over their refusal to advertise on the Ellen show. I'd never been to a Wendy's, had no intention of ever going to a Wendy's, and yet there I was boycotting it anyway. I'm still boycotting Domino's pizza, even though I've never had a Domino's pizza in my life.
Now I'm boycotting another place I had no intention of going to: Bad Alexandersbad in Germany; a spa town of 1,400 inhabitants whose only tourist attraction is a health spa that uses mineral spring water and acid peat to cure rheumatic problems.
And why would a TV show send a gay couple to Bavaria, the last bastion of the Nazis? I've been there and even the old ladies goose-step to the supermarket.
While we're on the Nazis … here we go again! HBO is making a documentary about a book that claims Adolf Hitler was gay.
The book, The Hidden Hitler, by German history professor Lothar Machtan, pretty much blames the holocaust on Hitler's alleged sexuality. I guess that explains why he lived with a woman and killed unknown thousands of homosexuals. I think the Enola Gay bombed the wrong country …
… Oh baby, I'll get some hate mail about that remark!!
