Parody Is Easy When The Targets Are Dumb People

I've heard lots of comment on the interwebs about the National Organisation for Marriage (NOM) ad against gay marriage, but until I saw the Colbert Report clip below I hadn't actually seen the original. OMG, it's almost a parody of itself it's so dumb. In my book they should have worked in a twister and Dorothy Gale's house into the storm mix... the gays' love of Judy and vintage musicals can cause twisters!

Cautionary tale! Anyhoo watch the Colbert clip below for a snippet of the original and a very funny parody of it.

Jane Lynch (love her!) and the good folks at Funny or Die have made their own satirical version too, with the help of some familiar faces:

Meanwhile, does anyone have an umbrella?

That ad is a joke on its self. Its embarrassing to watch. Colbert's version is a hoot.

Who cares, my beloved 'Smith' from Sex in the city is in this and that shows he's at least gay friendly, oh how i would love him to pat my bottom and tell me everything is going to be alright, i'd even pretend to believe him :-)

Don't forget 'Smith' was a big ole 'mo in Brothers & Sisters too! Nom nom!

Speedy, I don't think I ever did link to Prop 8: The Musical, I think because it was getting a lot of play everywhere else. It was very funny.
