Fisting with Frist



Al Kamen's column this morning in the Washington Post has an unexpected bit of hilarity regarding a très Brokeback fundraising invitation for Bill Frist:
The back of the card shows the cowboy from behind with a red flowered handkerchief sticking out of his right pocket. Wait a minute -- wasn't there something about how this used to be some kind of code in the gay community years ago? A way to signal each other in crowded, noisy bars?

So we checked the GayCityUSA.com's Hanky Codes. Sure enough, there it was in the chart explaining what they mean: red hanky in right pocket. Oh, dear.

Truly incredible stuff, Sparkle Pony.

By the by, I hope you didn't miss the item right below the Fristing bit-- Jack Straw, fawning doter upon Condi, made her sleep on the floor while he occupied a bed in her private room? I guess she failed the "eating crackers" test.

Boy, that doesn't sound good.

What a dirty, dirty, dirty little man!

Condi didn't want to humpety hump Jack, so she got the sofa. At least that's what you get if you read the tabloids in the UK.

What does this say about Bruce Springsteen?

There once was a fister named Frist
Who made all the Democrats pissed.
His every directive
Engendered invective,
Till we wished to break both of his wrists.

So Frist sometimes has Santorum, eh?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Gee, Miss Pony, after you wrote your hankie piece, it mysteriously appeared in Whining for Money, sans attribution.
That's some serious journalism up in there.

t–r–e accent grave–s spells très

Has the Sparkle Pony become one of those très presumptuous anti-french americans? Alors.

Well, Karen, after all, it was reported in the Post, not by me. I hardly deserve any credit for "reporting" it.

And anonymous, yes, you are totally correct. The offending accent has been remedied.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Ooops, sorry, I get confused about whose stuff they steal.
Your true reporting came by supplying the handy link to the hanky guide.
We lesbians didn't do the hankie thing back in the day. Instead we just slept with everyone in our circle, then recycled lovers every few months.
