overheard in boston

"... so this guy from Santo Domingo or someplace comes up to Jimmie and says, 'I'm not a U.S. citizen and I want unemployment comp. There's $2,500 and a used Nissan in it for you if you marry me.' Now Jimmie's always been in-your-face about his sex life and he says, 'Tell you what. Make it $1,000 down and half your checks as long as you play the frau.' So they get hitched in Brookline and Jimmie ends up with a guy paying him for what he used to get arrested for paying other twinks to do. Can you beat that?"

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
