Excuse Me, I Speak Gay

I, like Matt Weitz over at The Dallas Morning News, attended the Kathy Griffin show at the Meyerson Symphony Center Monday night. Griffin is known for offering up gay-friendly humor and even dished that while entertaining troops in Iraq, she found one soldier with whom she communicated in "fluent gay." Weitz, however, is not so fluent. In his overnight review yesterday, he quoted the Queen of the D-Listers as gossiping that Clay Aiken is "an impressive top." Oh, Matt, perhaps you've already received letters. Maybe some of them even had diagrams. Point is, you misheard. The term is "aggressive top." But hey, as a straight gal, it's not the first time I've seen a man confuse "aggressive" with "impressive." --Merritt Martin
