just took on a whole new meaning...

There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that organized and competitive sports are expressions of repressed homosexual urges. No truth at all. Not an iota. Nada.

I don't get where homosexuality comes into it, bagkitty.  Great video, though, Martin!

Thanks. But I am still a bit gun-shy of someone expressing "offense" for some reason.

Gee Michelle, talking about taking all the fun out of things. Oh well, guess I have to go all academic on ya:

Let's start here and then lets move on to here take a little detour through a more populist approach to the topic and then lets go out into left field, or over the top -- both metaphors are pretty valid -- and end up here.

My point? Stop being such a buzz kill Michelle, the homoerotic imagery is kinda in your face, extremely funny, and worth commenting on. I considered going off on a tangent and discussing how the "posing" in the video mirrored conventional posing in gay male porn, but then I would have had to drag in all sorts of not-workplace-friendly imagery to illustrate my point. (ETA: not to mention making myself even more questionable in others' eyes by knowing exactly where to find such imagery to illustrate my point)

But you don't have to take my word for, if you transfer the video to a hand held device and bring it along with you to your nearest gay-identified drinking establishment and conduct a "streeter" you will probably a) get confirmation of my original contention, b) give your interviewees something to grin about and c) might even get someone to buy you the beverage du jour.

(ETA: Martin, I just noticed your post where you mentioned you were worried about somehow causing "offence". Relax, today at least I will come to your defence if the neo-Victorians converge on you.)
