Okay no way this is what really happened...really happened.

I see what you did there, submitter....
 
2014-07-30 06:13:57 PM  
This is satire, right?

I thought a homophone was a device used by gays to communicate with each other?

My satire meter is pinging, too.  If it's not satire, I'm guessing he wrote the blog is such a way as to be pro-gay while explaining homophones - probably by explaining the root homo-, and then giving pro-gay examples.

The real thing is, why the fark is a language school so damn afraid of the Latin root homo-?  Farking religious assholes.

In their eyes, they're manly-man-sapiens. No homo.

I wonder what the owner's reaction would be if someone called him a Homo sapien.

It's a bit of a salad toss-up but I suspect he'd give them a proper tongue lashing.

It's the kind of blow Job himself would have trouble accepting.

Also assfark but I can't find a way to work that in...if you know what I mean.

Never, ever, ever go to work for a company based in Utah.

That's free advice.

Marcus Aurelius: Never, ever, ever go to work for a company based in Utah.

When the University system here in Alabama allowed same sex partners to get on the insurance plan.

That was a major issue; not having that benefit hurt recruiting for reserachers, staff, Administrators, Doctors, etc..etc. Even the hard line antigay folks gave in; as that university is a big cash cow for the economy here.

Antigay folks will roll over when their wallet is in danger.

Rather pedantic of them.

Hopefully for them, they keep their wallet in their back pocket.

Subby are you sure that's not an Onion article reprinted by that rag?

And he was "interestingly" hired on april fools day? Methinks someone took a satire story and repeated it as if it were a real event....

David Letterman did a segment early on where he asked people on the street if they would vote for a known heterosexual. Best response is by an old lady: SEXUAL??? NEVER!!!
