To discuss Fake Andy Shaw of the Month: Fabulous April edition

Fake Andy Shaw of the Month

With the recent news of my return to musical theater, what better candidate for Andy Shaw of the Month* than this Andy Shaw...

... who, according to Feast of Fools, is a gay musical theater actor and is inexplicably holding a can of turkey gravy.

I have no idea what this means, really: "Andy is hot. So hot in fact he joined Marc this past Pride Parade in Chicago to help pass out mashed potatoes and gravy to the Good People of the World."

Is that a euphemism, or did they really pass out food?

Also, there's this: "So we had to ask to Andy, do young gay men get annoyed when SLIGHTLY older peers refer to them cattily as “chicken?” Andy didn’t know what the term meant."

This Andy doesn't either. So does this mean that KFC is really just an insider joint for gay cougars? What are much younger gay men called? Eggs? And are macho gay men called roosters? So much to know still.

I'm fully aware I'm one of the few straight men who do musical theater. At one point in life, it gave me a distinct advantage with the ladies: "Hey, just so you know, I can sing, act and I like boobies." Now that I am in a relationship, I'll just let other actors guess. It's more fun that way. But I am not going to hold anyone's drumstick.**

* Fake Andy Shaw of the Month, for new people, is my recurring ode to the many guys out there with the same name as me. Here's a sample.
** Hey-yooo!

I wish I could see the picture. My computer decided yesterday to start showing little red x's instead of whatever is supposed to be there. Lame. I need to get that fixed... your pictures are always hilarious.
I, too, have never heard of the term "chicken" for young gays. I don't get it...

I demand a photo of the Real Andy Shaw impersonating the fake Andy Shaw. I will even send you the can of gravy to do it (um, I mean that in the literal sense, not as dirty as it sounds)

He wants you to slather his fine-ass body in sweet turkey gravy.

Who are you to resist, chicken?

"Hey, just so you know, I can sing, act and I like boobies."

Okay, going to a very musical high school, where probably 1/3 of the musical population came out once they went to college, I can confidently tell you that gay men LOVE boobies. Or at least all the gay men I know do. I actually had one rave about mine. Sooooo... ummmm, yeah. Loving boobies isn't a clarifier of heterosexuality. :-)

I'm glad you found a fake Andy Shaw that is so much like you - i mean, aside from the man-love part.

However, i'm not so happy about all the chicken/gravy/mashed potato euphemisms. You've totally ruined this weeks baked dinner night for me....

I agree with FunnyGal KAT, you gotta post a Real Andy photo of this Fake Andy Shaw. Your readers will love you forever! :)

Maybe you can hold up a box of mashed potatoes and then you can put the pics together.

You know, like PB&J (mashed potatoes and gravy) but you'd have to be shirtless, of course.

I don't know what's going on with the gravy either.

Everyone: I'll see what I can do about a photo. I ran the idea by Capricorn, and I could practically see her roll her eyes over the phone. I think I can convince her this doesn't make me gay. Having sex with dudes makes you gay.

LOL...we are running your bloggy life now.

POST THIS PIC!!!

LOL

I agree with KAT. You should totally remake this photo. It'd be hilarious.

Consider it done...
