Not what you might expect. A pretty good article about “Brokeback Mountain” jokes.
So, what exactly is a ‘Tainan’ cowboy, anyway?

BOb or bodo is gonna get ya. I suggest you say this when they do

Ah, the best thing about the article was the link to Brokeback To The Future.
That article is in the China Post today. In the long run, it’s a healthy sign that people can joke about gays better now, and what it really shows is that Western culture is growing up, step by step. When they cannot “get” something at first, like Blacks, or Jews, or handicapped people, or born-again Christians or feminists or liberals or Polish people or Mexicans, the first thing that comes up is HUMOR. Jokes.
That paves the way for acceptance later on. In 20 years, the Brokenback Mtn jokes will be tame. They are tame today. Humor helps people accept others, and that’s the way it always is.
For example, the joke in the article about Rev. Pat Robertson. That joke cuts both ways, and helps us accept evangelicals and gays at the same time.
Good AP article.
