Gayest Looks for Leno

So, last week, Jay Leno asked Ryan Phillippe–who, a verrrrry long time ago, played the first out gay teen character on daytime TV–to give him his “gayest look” on camera. ‘Cause, you know, teh gay is teh funny. Liss blogged it, for those who want more background than “Jay Leno = giant jackass.”

Today, playwright Jeff Whitty, of Avenue Q fame, wrote a post in which he offered Jay Leno his gayest look:

And well, hell if it ain’t a meme now.

Herewith, my gayest look (immediately following Pilates class and a couple glasses of wine with Gemellen, hence bedraggledness):

Please join in the fun and e-mail your gayest look to shakespeares_sister@comcast.net.

  1. This is cracking my shit up. I haven’t even seen Avenue Q but I already knew I loved Jeff Whitty, and I have a massive gay crush on him now. Suck it, Leno.

  2. You know, I actually used to like Jay Leno. He even had on the Padded Lilies once and didn’t treat them like too much of a freakshow. I knew a woman once who was a television writer who had worked for both Leno and Letterman, and she said Leno was a dream to work for and Letterman a total nightmare, and a lot of his early standup was pretty funny, and so I had kind of a soft spot for him. But now, gah, what a smug asswipe. I might even have to get C. to take a picture of me and my gayest look.

  3. I just mailed a pseudonymous pic to Liss. I hope she posts it! My pseudonymity is rather cleverly preserved!

    Word on Whitty’s post. Everyone, go read it if you haven’t yet. Also, he is cute.

  5. I went there. I read that. It was a great post. And he (Whitty) is very cute! Thanks for giving us just one more reason to think Jay Leno is a stupid stupid man. Never watch him, this definitely supports my decision that.

  6. You know, sometimes it sucks being a woman when we’ve got hot gay men like him and John Barrowman out there.

    As for Leno, he should probably do an hour of Headlines since it’s the only funny part of his show.

  7. Cute and very eloquent.

    Personally I’ve always thought Leno was a smug tosser; but I’ve found that most chat show hosts seem to morph that way after 4 or 5 years on TV. It seems to go with the territory.

  8. Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman
    Getting hot for such a hot gay man
    [I’m afraid a lot of the other lines rhymed with trans and got really immoral, so I’ve deleted them.]

  9. I’m so glad I am going to see Avenue Q on Saturday!

    Hmmm, how to take a picture of my gayest look…without my inlaws finding a picture of me flipping the bird on the intarwebs

  10. Sweet Machine, excellent work with the pseudonymity!

    Leno is a tool. Gimme Conan O’Brien any day.

    Also, the post at Shakesville is cracking me up because, when I was younger and (slightly) less mature, I used to collect pictures of everyone I knew flipping birds. Seriously, somewhere I have an entire photo album with nothing but birdie photos. It kinda looks like that post, only more of them involve me wearing flannel shirts.

  11. Heehee. Thanks, Tari and Kate. I credit my cleverness to the jack-and-coke I had before reading the post. ;-)

  12. My gayest look is when I walk out of the house.

    Oh wait, you mean the queeny stereotypical scary MALE gays. Yeah, I would bet they all look the same to you, Jay, because they’re all staring at you in utter disbelief.

    This made me laugh out loud.

  14. Goddamn Kate. You are an unbelievably unattractive woman!!

    signed,

    every straight man with a set of eyes. (except for your closeted boyfriend, of course)

  15. Yeah, “every straight man”. Right, what a wanker. Who I’m sure is ugly himself. Like one of those guys making fun of fat women on his website whose pic I found online very easily, and which revealed himself not only to be bald and ugly, but…..fat.

  16. Ironically, it’s a little known historical fact that Thomas Paine liked his ladies just like Kate: Smart ‘n’ curvy.

    Common Sense… Thomas Paine… Get it?

    I’m a huge dork. A huge, fat dork. ;)

    (And obviously Paine was a latent homosexual…)

  17. I think Common Sense just got Kate confused with Jeff. Who is a very cute guy, but an unbelievably unattractive woman.

    Funny enough, the reason I just left that comment alone instead of deleting it was that I thought it said “uncommonly attractive,” and wasn’t sure whether to ditch it or put it up so we could make fun of him for being unable to express even agreement without physical commentary. Turns out he sucks in a much more boring way. I didn’t approve it, but if I’d read more carefully I woulda deleted it.

    Even funnier, so did I at first. And yet, “go fuck yourself” still seemed an adequate response.

  19. Oh dude, I totally misread the comment too. I thought it was a pseudonymous friend of Kate leaving her a compliment!

    I think after reading Death of a Salesman, A Streetcar Named Desire, Heartbreak House, Endgame, and Dutchman this week, I might be grasping for any shred of positivity wherever I see it! Sorry to have missed the nastiness of that comment, Kate.
