Gay Uganda?Edit

  • When the Ugandan threat to kill gays first surfaced, I spotted a tweet that particularly amused me, I'll try and get it right but this is a quote from memory.
"I'm looking for a new business opportunity. Gay travel and adventure holidays seem fairly recession-proof, think I'll start" --Brian McNeil / talk 04:12, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

If Ugandan pass the bill the US/EU/UN have to cut all aid to that nation.--KDP3 (talk) 12:07, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

So obviously killing gays should be high on the priority list, right?
