Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert has
warned his audience against the secondhand effects of being gay.
Tuesday's edition of the Colbert
reported that Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann had railed
against gay marriage during a stop in Iowa.
“Bachmann is shaking her anti-gay
moneymaker to win over The Family Leader leader Bob Vander Plaats,”
Colbert told his audience.
Plaats recently said, “If we’re teaching the kids, 'don’t
smoke, because that’s a risky health style,' the same can be true
too of the homosexual lifestyle.”
“Incidentally,” Colbert said. “If
your gay sex is causing smoke, you may want to slow things down.”
“But they're absolutely right.
They're absolutely right. Homosexuality is just as dangerous as
secondhand smoke. I don't want either of them around me. That's why
for years I've been calling on the surgeon general to put warning
labels on gay people.”
“That's right smoking is just like
being gay. That's why you always see people huddled outside work
taking a 10-minute gay break. And folks, we've all been there. In
social situations it's sometimes unavoidable. You go to a bar with
your buddies, have a few drinks, then all of the sudden someone whips
one out and passes it around. You can't say no. And even if you do,
your clothes end up full of secondhand gay.”
