Any movie with Vince Vaughn in it is gay.

And I don't mean gay in a bad way, of course, In a 'parents chaparoning your dance' way.

Is that the correct way to use the phrase, Vince? Since you're such a PARAGON of linguistics, ya know?

This is another example of Orwellian doublethink, i.e. you can be sympathetic to the gay cause....while using the term "gay" as a pejorative.

Why doesn't he just replace the word "gay" with the word "jew" in the joke, and then explain why it's so funny ?

Why no Mohammed joke ?!

It's things like this that make me put entertainers, and others, on my "LIST" of people I boycott.

He now joins Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Gibson, and Alec Baldwin, along with others, on my "LIST" of people I boycott. And once you get on my list, you NEVER get off of it.

The fact that gays make up a larger percentage of movie goers than their numbers would suggest means that they are possibly offending 25% of their potential audience. Way to go Vince, Ron! Maybe one day kids will be saying "That's so Ron," or "That's so Vince."

Since there are more gays than Jews, wouldn't it make more sense to offend the Jews, because there are less of them ?

And being a Jew IS a "lifestyle choice" that can be changed at any time if they wish to do so.
