Ill noise for ill teachers: Two penises, no pension

by Jeremy Hooper

200804151850By a vote of 43-67, the Illinois House today killed a measure that would have allowed gay teachers to give survivor benefits to their partners in the same way that married 'rosexual teachers currently can:

Oh, the joys of being gay just keep on coming. Even when you're laid to rest the indignities still aren't!

It's unclear in what direction the measure's supporters will head next. Though we do hear they are considering an alternate initiative that would legally require 67 lawmakers to remove their heads from their arses.

Your thoughts

Actually, an even number of penises (including zero) and an even number of vaginae (including zero) will make sure you have no pension.

How odd.
