Thanks to Good As You for bringing the following to our attention

According to a Washington Post article, Bill Frist, the Senate Majority Leader (and anti-gay marriage constitutional amendent advocate) is hosting a party to raise money for other Senators.

The invitation features a blue jeaned cowboy’s whose belt buckle you had to undo to open the card. Umm, OK. On the back, well, as the Post’s Al Kamen commented:

The back of the card shows the cowboy from behind with a red flowered handkerchief sticking out of his right pocket. Wait a minute — wasn’t there something about how this used to be some kind of code in the gay community years ago? A way to signal each other in crowded, noisy bars?

So we checked the’s Hanky Codes. Sure enough, there it was in the chart explaining what they mean: red hanky in right pocket. Oh, dear.

Oh, dear, indeed.
