News of the Obvious

I just received the following text from a friend:

“Just got called a fag on 17th steet and 8th ave.”

For those of you who don’t live in New York, this is one of the gayest streets in America, for sure. Storefronts all along the street are filled with pictures of naked oiled men holding lubricants. Seriously, the local deli has a poster up of a dude in tightie whities. It appears to be advertising sandwiches. There’s a connection somewhere, but I couldn’t tell you what it is.

I feel that the only appropriate response in my friend’s position would be to say, “Doy.”
