Closet Funnies

The Closet is not a fun place to be but once you're out, we can all laugh about it!






Remember that most poignant scene of all in the movie Brokeback Mountain? Ennis visits Jack's oppressive and hostile childhood home after his death and while there, finds hidden in his closet Jack's coded shrine to the early days of their love -- Ennis' and Jack's shirts nestled together on one hanger next to a postcard of Brokeback thumbtacked to the closet wall. That scene breaks my heart every time I see it.


So let's give the last word on long-term life and love in the closet to the middle-aged Jack --

Could the rainbow be any more perfect for our symbol??? I was never in the closet, but those Polos hanging could be mine. I swear I have them in every colorSome of these made me laugh real hard, especially the coming out board.

We have some family still in the closet so we go and visit them there instead. That is fine too, we still love them even if their society blocks their door.

Haha. Jack's got it down. I loved the joke about none of the kids liking boys. Except the boy.
Hope all's well for you and Rare One.

Oh my goodness! Very good. Although when I started, I took your subject line literally and was pretty skeptical about how many good jokes that could provide... :oP

Keeping a straight face - good one.
I think someday the usage of "straight" for this will lose it's meaning.
