Disney closes anti-obesity exhibit because of negative perception

Posted Friday, March 2, 2012 10:19 AM | Contributed by Jeff

I've been around these parts for a long, long time. Are there really that many gay folks on the site? Can we get a head count?

And, who in the world gives a +1 to themself? That is like trying to give a solo high 5.

^What makes it gay is that you still remember it fondly...

...not that fact that you called dibs on "little spoon"... ;)

...and now, even though I'm missing Mooshie...I'm smiling because it happened... :)

I'm not really gay. I think a lot of coaster enthusiast just pretend to be gay so that they can make friends.

If that's the case, you're very good at 'being gay' Travis ;)

So let me get this straight. To make friends in coaster clubs, you have to be fat, gay, be in a stupid music band, and be annoyingly obnoxious like Travis?

Well being an asshole here isn't going to win you any friends. Most people with any level of common sense don't try to hang out with people they don't like.

We're done here.
