You know the website, OverheardinNewYork website? I have an entry for them.
Penn Station last Friday.
30ish Girl (almost whispering): "Is Boy George.....gay?"
40ish Man: (laughing hysterically): "...and you're the last to know!"
This was all in a response to the Boy being found guilty holding that male hooker hostage, or so the 30ish Girl said. She saw it on the morning news.
40ish man responded, "Well how else was he going to get anyone to stay the night?"
Yes, I'm the 40ish man. The 30ish woman was one of my co-workers I was traveling with. I know she was probably too young for the "Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me" phase, but seriously, isn't BG big enough in pop culture where folks know he didn't like girls? Hasn't she ever seen The Wedding Singer?
Song by: Depeche Mode
Ummmm.....don't you mean 50-ish man!?
If it were you instead of me, then yes.
I had a student respond "who's that?" when I mentioned David Bowie the other day. Made me feel old.
Maybe she was home-schooled or held hostage most of her life. Maybe she doesn't have a television or believes that nothing happened before she was born. Poor thing.

Lord...Even my father like to hear him sing, even if he was in drag!
