I will close this thread with a story that made me LOL when I heard it yesterday.
My family and I went to visit one of my cousins in another state over the weekend. At one point, the conversation turned to another mutual cousin of ours, who is gay. The story goes that back in the 80's, he decided to finally come out and tell his parents that he was gay. After explaining the situation, there was a few moments of apparent stunned silence before my uncle turned to my aunt and said "You owe me $5,".
