Was that a double entendre headline that made me ROTFL? "Voters come out for CBC election"

Yes, that is what appeared as a headline on the www.mysoutex.com Website in the uber-conservative region of the state where I was raised as a youngster. Considering that the area is dominated by ranchers, I could envision the main characters of Brokeback Mountain leading the LGBT flocks to the polls in a scene that for lack of better words could be described as "yummy". With all those people choosing to "out" themselves for this election, maybe they can get organized for a Gay Pride parade in June?


The story is about an election at Coastal Bend College in Beeville, Texas where there is some dissension about the Board of Trustees because of the elimination of some of the vocational programs and the rise in administrative costs. There have been significant budgetary adjustments since most of the prospective students are able to find high-paying jobs that don't require any college courses due to exploration related to the Eagle Ford Shale play.

Nearly all of the story is hidden behind a paywall so I'll skip providing a link--however, I thought that my fellow DUers would enjoy the humorous headline.

1. I've lived a very sheltered life (apparently) and don't get it. Help!

2. "Come out" = "Declare oneself as gay"

Got it?
