Granddad.. took me to San Francisco to see some gay people... it didn’t help much... [San Francisco, where else?!] was filled with people looking like they were headed for a... leather swap meet.

....don’t... spend all my life bitching about being [ugly], or about having parents a shade to the left of the middle on your normal bell-shaped sexual curve... phantoms of sexual perversity... point me out for public mockery.
