I'm sure around this time today, you're grilling burgers and dogs, drinking cold beer, and getting ready to blow shit up with fireworks. God bless ya' if you are, because our brave men and women serving in the military give and continue to give us the opportunity to do all this.
Speaking, of the military, this leads into an very opportunistic and strangely appropriate post for today.
I recently read on the comicbookresources.com forum, a thread where some people asked if Captain America was gay. I too wondered about that, especially given how now GA Green Lantern Alan Scott was recently turned gay. But don't worry, I'm not turning Cap gay. But it is interesting to know what he's into since he's a man straight out of the 40's.
Let's have a look shall we?
Captain America: "Hey Bucky, remember back in the war when we used to have war-buddies?"
Bucky-Cap: "Uh yeah, Cap I do."
Cap: "God those were good times. Hunkering down in the cold and often, blood-filled trenches, with nothing but a war-buddy to keep you warm and grounded to reality. Of course nowadays you have that "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Good, good stuff. Best thing Clinton ever did besides getting a blowjob from that nice young woman from Hooters."
Bucky-Cap: "No Cap, Obama repelled that policy awhile ago."
Cap: "Oh. He did, did he? Damn shame. I wonder what they'll do now?"
Cap: "Did I ever tell you back in the 60's we used to call blowjobs LBJ's? Yeah, LBJ himself thought that was a hoot. Of course the "L" sometimes meant different things. Sometimes it meant Long or Little, depending on the size of the President's little Commander-in-Chief. If you get my drift."
Bucky-Cap: "*Sigh*, yes Cap, I get it. No, this isn't awkward at all. Somebody just kill me now!"
