[Picture changes to the US country colored as LGBTQ flag.]

After the supreme court declined the rule on the issue of same sex marriage, it is now legal in 30 states.

I know there are some dead big gay boyfriends out there like, “Yo! Carl! You know I wanna marry you.” “But, society man! Just won’t let us. Oh, well. I guess we gotta just keep boning casually till the world gets it’s tact together.”
