You're battin' 1.000, my post didn't even get one, and now I can't find it.

Thanks, OP. But you're a little lazy, aren't you?

Messrs. Axler and Fletcher.

Leon Czolgosz, presidential assassin, was found to have "perverted tendencies" when he was 16. Later he was an advocate for free love and anarchism (not unlike Datalounge's libertarian troll).

Doesn't Elvis mention the Purple Gang in "Jailhouse Rock," which can be construed as being about homosexual sex in prison?

Jailhouse rock is a queer ING, ain't it?

How exactly do we know that Abe Axler and Eddie Fletcher were lovers?

From Jailhouse Rock:

"Number forty-seven said to number three: You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see."

Did Danny Kaye die of hep C or was it AIDS? A lot of Danny Kaye history has been fudged over, pardon the pun. They celebrated his 100th birthday in Jan 2013, when it was actually his 102nd birthday (he had lied about his age to make himself appear as more of a wiz-kid genius).

There are knowledgeable people who swear Kaye was no mo. Equally knowledgeable people say he obviously was a mo. You can't deny that he porked a few women.

R15, you ass, perhaps Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Segal, two well-known heterosexuals, ought to send someone over to deliver you a big fat lead matzo ball?

So, r14? Doesn't mean they were a gay couple. Aside from supposition, what's the evidence?
