Hammer-Smelt denied by SCOTUS; Screwdriver-Stunk were not

by Jeremy Hooper

Arthur Smelt and Christopher Hammer, two California men who were hoping to take their marriage-desiring case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, were today rebuffed by that judicial body. Though don't get too upset by the news, gays; our California buddies didn't have the backing of the groups who usually fight such battles for us (i.e. Lambda Legal, ALCU, etc), making this development less of a major setback and more of an, "Oh, okay, so that happened."

SCOTUS made no comment on their decision, but we'd imagine it had something to do with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's irrational fear of malodorous nail-driving tools. Obviously.
