I worked for a company that, due to the big boss being tired of seeing frauen desks overloaded with dozens of photos of nauseatingly-cute grandchildren, instituted a very strict desk policy, wherein only one company-provided picture frame was allowed. One fun-loving old queen took his 'approved' frame, put a picture of Ethel Merman in it and stuck it on his desk,
One day some little gayling, complete with sweater-over-shoulders and tight slacks accentuating his perky little butt, stopped by to ask the old guy a question, saw the photo of Merman, and cooed 'Oooh, is that your mother?'
The old queen extended his arm, pointed his bony finger at the door and screamed "Out! Out! Turn in your gay card and Get Out NOW!'
