Virginia Is For (Twink) Lovers

Responding to “citizen complaints” about this in-store poster, Virginia Beach police charged the manager of the local Abercrombie & Fitch outlet with displaying “obscene materials in a business that is open to juveniles.” Police say they only acted after store management refused to heed previous warnings.

“Get Over It, Kid”

I gotta admit, the “snow day voice mail” making the news kinda cracks me up. Some kid in Virginia called a school administrator to complain that that a snow day had not been declared. The administrator’s wife called the kid back and ripped him a new one. Classic.

Patti LaBelle: I Am Not A Vagitarian

Patti LaBelle does not appreciate attention from the ladies. LaBelle: “When I got my divorce, the women jumped on me like white on rice! I said, ‘Look, I ain’t ever did fish, I don’t intend to do fish so leave me alone.’” OK, we hear ya, Patti. But maybe Massengill will want you as their next spokesperson. (Via – Queerty.)

iPhonies

I passed by the midtown Apple Store yesterday where people were already lined up for Friday’s iPhone release. Some of them have been there since Monday.
