Advice columnist Abby recently came out – so to speak – with her declaration that she believes that gay marriage should be legalized. This pronouncement probably makes some people very happy, and some people very turned off. It made me wanna write a new verse or two for the old John Prine song*:
‘Dear Abby, dear Abby**,
I’m not feelin’ so great,
I’m a pink kinda guy in a very red state,
the love of my life shares a ‘Y’ chromosome,
I want him to live in our connubial home
Gay-Tommy, Gay-Tommy, you have no complaint,
You are what you are and you ain’t what you ain’t,
move out of the red zone and cover your bets,
try moving to Canada or Mass-a-chu-setts..
Dear Abby, dear Abby,
I recently discovered a whole new world,
it just happened when I happened to kiss a girl,
I’m female you see, that kiss went to my head,
my question to you, can we legally wed?
signed – Sapphro-dite
you have no complaint,
you are what you are, and you ain’t what you ain’t
stop pretending to like boys, and listen to me,
good luck with your lady and LEAVE Tennessee..
siiiiiigned, Dear Abby.
When I first read this story on AOL, I started reading the comments…here’s my favorite, and I didn’t change a word, letter or phrase:

**My sincere apologies to Mr. Prine, his family and anyone who happens to know him.
**I’m not gay and my name is not Tommy, not that there’s anything wrong with being named Tommy.
