With logic like this on their side, how can they lose?
“It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right… . Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.” — Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), advocating a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in a speech Thursday to the Heritage Foundation. (source)

That quote was on "The Daily Show" last night, along with a great icon of a guy having sex with a turtle. The whole time they were covering the ban on same sex marriage amendment I kept hoping for some box turtle action. I'm so happy I have tickets to see "The Daily Show" in October.

This just in: Gavin Newsom is actually a box turtle in disguise. He made the announcement over at City Hall this afternoon.

Seriously though, what the fuck is a box turtle? Is that a turtle you get in a box, or some sort of weird cubist animal?

The real problem is that people are afraid that the human-boxturtle hybrid would beat up their squishy little human children on the playground. Turtles are tough.

Your thoughts?
