Today, …

NEW YORK: Students Perform La Cage Aux Folles At Special Needs School

A NYC private school for special needs kids has put on a student production of La Cage Aux Folles. While the show itself is fairly G-rated, the idea of ten year-olds performing in drag has gotten the New York Post’s vile Andrea Peyser screaming. “Dad, do I have to wear a dress to school?” No joke. These conversations went on …

Post Issues Non-Apologetic Apology

The New York Post has issued a classic “fuck you” apology for Wednesday’s Obama=monkey cartoon. Wednesday’s Page Six cartoon – caricaturing Monday’s police shooting of a chimpanzee in Connecticut – has created considerable controversy.
