    Well it did come from the new york times, so we do need to treat this with trepidation and suspicion, as it's not a reliable respected news source; now innit. After all the people of Oz, don't support gay marriage but we don't hate on the gays either.

    How many people with either first or last names of Gay are actually gay, I wonder? How many people have changed their names simply to avoid the taunting? icon_lol.gif

    It's a great story, but OLD. Ansett went bankrupt in 2002. I wonder if it's true.

    cold saidFunny, but I'm pretty sure it isn't real...


    Agree. In reality, the Ticket Agent would have asked, "Are you Mr Gay?", which, of course, would have destroyed the entire basis for the 'confusion' in the tale.

    They did indeed collapse in 2002 - so the story must be at least 10 years old (back when gay sex was still illegal in some US states!)

    I have the "Gay News" feed on my Google News page ... so I can follow all the latest updates about gay marriage, etc. And it keeps me posted with news about track star Tyson Gay.

    My mom's family's last name used to be spelled Moroney, but my great great (maybe further back?) grandfather changed it to Maroney because of the obvious name calling.
