Well, as long as I am writing anyway, here's my GAY joke, I shared
with my GAY friends and it's approved by all of them:

There is this young homosexual guy who finally has the guts to come
out with his family. To him it seems that the x-mas table is the
right setting for this, as all the family is present and the food is
So he stands up and signals he wants to make a speech. He gets up,
raises his glass and looks at his mother. He starts: "Dear mum, dear
family, I have to tell you something important. I want to tell you...
I'm gay..."
There is a short silence, puzzled faces. Then his mother breaks into
a smile. she says:
"Of course you are gay, dear, thats normal. Everybody is gay today,
its Christmas!"
And all break into a laughter and the dinner continues.

cheers, Barb
