How frighteningly retro: TN man greeted with burning cross, anti-gay messages
A 7 foot tall burning cross was recently placed at the home of a gay man in Athens, Tennessee.
Our interpretation of the incident: Clearly someone at the man's recent "Desperate Housewives" party misinterpreted a lesbian partygoer's wishes to see...
...a "fiery-topped Cross, looking smoking hot, standing in this front yard right now." Had to have been it, right?
However, we have no explanation as to why homophobic insults were reportedly found near the cross. Perhaps another guests post-"Housewives," pre-"Grey's Anatomy" declaration of "I hate 'Grey's!" was also misheard and misinterpreted?
Look, we know it's a stretch; but seriously, people -- an anti-gay cross burning in 2006?! We just can't deal with that in a straightforward manner on the first day back after a long vacation. So you know what they say: When life gives you a frightening homophobic incident, you make silly jokes about ABC's Sunday night lineup, so as to not cry, scream, or just give up hope.
The FBI is said to be investigating the marcia cross burning. We, on the other hand, have been investigating a way to incorporate ABC's other hit Sunday night show, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," into this post. Alas, all options seem far too obvious.
