Brokeback Humor Rides The Comedy Trail

(from USA Today, January 25, 2006): Ridin', ropin', redecoratin' and jokin' on the late shows. Comedians have been having a field day with Brokeback Mountain. A sampling of their ranch-hand humor:

Conan O'Brien--
"Today, the controversial new movie Brokeback Mountain opens, about two gay cowboys. Apparently, you can tell the characters are gay because they're dressed like cowboys."


Jay Leno--
"Hey, just a week to go until Elton John's wedding. You know where Elton's honeymooning? Brokeback Mountain."

"A movie theater in Utah abruptly canceled a screening of the movie Brokeback Mountain. They felt it was inappropriate for the community standards. Instead they ran Deliverance."

"Ninety percent of men say their lover is also their best friend. Which has got to be a big surprise to their wives. 'Hey, hon, I'm going over to Bob's. We're catching the 10 o'clock showing of Brokeback Mountain. Don't wait up.' "


David Letterman--

Nathan Lane--
Sample lyrics from the spoof Brokeback: The Musical, by Nathan Lane on Late Night with David Letterman:

(To the tune of Oklahoma!)

Lane: "Broooooookeback Mountain
Where those jolly ranchers disappeared
In the tent to sleep, after driving sheep
When the fire went out, then things got weird."
