While the Supreme Court justices decide how to vote to repeal Proposition 8 without looking too “gay”, and how to vote to keep Proposition 8 without looking too ridiculous, we went ahead and found some clips of people who really put the idea of gay marriage in perspective: comedians.

Why is that anyone else’s problem? Two guys are in LOVE but they can’t get married because YOU don’t want to talk to your ugly child for five fuckin’ minutes?”
“Apparently the heterosexuals have reached a point where they’re are so fucked up that we better write it down in case we forget who we’re supposed to marry.”
“As gay men ourselves, we would just like to say to those people, ‘Fine. Keep marriage between a man and a woman. And in response, we will marry your girlfriends.'”
“If you don’t believe in gay marriage, you’re a dickhead…because it has nothing to do with you.”
“Baby, this shit we got together is so good we gotta get the government in on this shit.”
“I’m actually all for gay marriage. Just the thought of having a man around the house…”
