About Calers

Born Belfast 1971. I read history at Edinburgh. I did a Master's at UCL. I have semi-libertarian right wing opinions. I am married with a daughter and a son. I am allergic to cats. I am the falling hope of the not so stern and somewhat bending Tories. I am a legal beagle rather than and eagle. Big up the Commonwealth of Nations.

    • You are most welcome. I assure you I am not anti-gay at all and I have many gay friends. I have no objection to same sex marriage. This is simply a light-hearted list of imaginary gay hangouts. Astonishingly it gets more hits than any other article. Maybe someone will open a bar with one of the names I dreamt up. People are welcome to crack jokes about straights.

  3. Daddy Warbucks in Palm Desert, CA. lol- not sure if it still exists.
    The Backdoor in Las Vegas, NV. i went in there to use their phone back in 1999 and had all the old bears fighting over me.

    • Dear C, Jokes are not intended to be uncontroversial. I am pleased that you have survived. I would that no one contracted this illness. With anti retrovirals being HIV poisitive need not be life limiting. You dislike my quip? Tough! What do you expect me to do? Delete it off? Fat chance. If you are insulted by my mirth then look elsewhere. Why are you offended by this humour? AIDS exists. Those who suffer from it are victims are they not? Is this joke mean? Perhaps it is. It is deriving drollery from another’s suffering. We are all going to die. Might as well laugh our way to the grave. How can my comedy make such anguish worse? Laugh at yourself.

      • unfortunately “the aids victim” just wasn’t a funny name. maybe that’s why they were offended. if you don’t understand why someone might be offended by this, that’s sad. if your family was murdered and then someone made a joke about it, don’t you think you would be upset? i agree with you about comedy in general, but in certain situations, certain topics will never be funny to certain people. you don’t have to try to change their feelings about it. peace!

      • Some people will find these jokes unpalatable or even insulting. We are all going to die. Let’s laugh our way to the grave. Laugh at your own misfortune. Makes it easier to cope. You do not like my drolleries? Don’t read them. Life is too short.
