Gay Away! - I don't normally read the Weekly World News, so I was astonished to find this story reasonably well-written and amusing. True, it doesn't expect as much savvy from the reader -- for example by making up a mythical gay rights group Gay Equality Now based in (where else?) San Francisco, rather than using a legitimate reference. Yet the story was clearly intended as comedy not fuel for the gullible. Now I'm looking at WWN in a new light, as an Onion for the ignorant but not necessarily humor-impaired masses.
