Dolly Apologizes to Lesbian Couple and Does some damage control for Dollywood

by Accidental Bear

I can just hear her squeaky, wonderful voice bouncing off her delicious breast, “Golly Gosh darn, really? I’m sorry.” Dolly does some damage control. AB

Dolly Parton has issued an apology to the lesbian couple who felt discriminated against at Dollywood last month, saying she’s sorry for “the hurt or embarrassment,” reports ABC News.

As The Advocate reported July 20, Olivier Odom and Jennifer Tipton and the children of a friend were stopped at the entrance to Parton’s popular Tennessee theme park when a gatekeeper noticed Odom wearing a T-shirt that read “Marriage Is So Gay.” Odom was instructed her to turn the shirt inside out before her party could enter Dollywood. Parton’s statement reads: “I am truly sorry for the hurt or embarrassment regarding the gay and lesbian t-shirt incident at Dollywood’s Splash Country recently. Everyone knows of my personal support of the gay and lesbian community. Dollywood is a family park and all families are welcome.”

Gay Couple Frees Coyote From Giant Mayonnaise Jar: Gay Super Heros

by Accidental Bear

Gay super hero role models! Ok, maybe that is over doing it, but not if you were this poor little curious coyote. AB

Two Seattle men came to the aid of a coyote pup with an unusual predicament. The pup had a jar stuck on his head. People who live in the area had become concerned and called animal control because the pup had been stuck for at least a week. Roel Garcia says he and his partner, Jeff Bryant, had not seen any news reports about the pup and were taking a break from working in their back yard on Sunday when he saw the coyote approaching.

It was standing just a few feet from Bryant. Garcia said the pup looked weak and they could see the outline of his ribs through his fur. “I doubt he could see anything through the jar, let alone smell or hear my partner,” said Garcia. Bryant waited until the pup turned its head and then he leapt towards the pup, but the pup saw him and tried to run away. “My partner said that he saw that the pup had stumbled and fallen so my partner again leapt to the pup and was able to catch him,” said Garcia. Bryant pulled the jar off the pup’s head and the pup quickly ran back into the wooded area.

by Accidental Bear

Oh lord, I want to lather on Marianne Faithfull‘s new album ‘Horses and High Heels’ on my skin like a coating of protection.
