Thank you very much for your contributions. This one may be my favorite of recent times. Remember Anthony Wiener, the Democrat who had to leave Congress in disgrace? Well, in the special election to replace him Gay Marriage became an issue which threatened to turn his district Republican, leading to this:

Sometimes, life is simply beautiful.

Dear Neopan100,

Thanks for your link to Fark. That's good stuff and I had forgotten about it. But I decided to stay pure in the OP and use only the headlines as they appeared in the original article. I'm a headline prude, I guess.

With respect,
Charles1952
