“the show seemed to have poor performance overall, but the gay section was a ghost town.”

Morris suggested that many of the larger companies had decided amongst
themselves that it wasn’t worth going and had more or less decided to

Raging Stallionpared down costs by partnering with sites like
NakedSword for model signings and promotional events.

The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
