More insane and homophobic anti-Adam Lambert FCC complaints published

The Smoking Gun has published 28 pages of complaints to the FCC about Adam Lambert’s AMA performance. Like the ones published by a blog yesterday, they are crazy, homophobic, and full of bad spelling and illogical arguments.

One person thinks Adam is a lesbian and others are just violently homophobic, and criticism even comes from someone who says he’s gay.

While some writers make little sense (we apparently have a right to be entertained if we pay taxes!). There are a few that are mild and even funny; this one is amusing until it gets to the death threats. Others aren’t entirely insane, though it’s curious that these people felt the need to bother a government agency with their bothers.

I particularly love the parents who think watching people behave sexually at 11 p.m. in the evening–or even a man kiss a man!–is going to damage their children; what impact will having a bigoted or stupid parent have?

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
