March Came In Like A Lion, Went Out Like A Little Faggot

NEW YORK CITY–Even though it rained yesterday, the last week of March set record high temperatures in New York City, prompting National Weather Service spokesman David Campanile to claim that “March came in like a lion and went out like a little faggot.”

Campanile’s controversial statement sparked outrage within the gay community. Patrick Downs is the president of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. He found Campanile’s comments “appalling,” saying, “The expression is ‘March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.’ Lambs and homosexuals aren’t similar in any way, so how this confusion could even occur is beyond me.” Members of the lamb community were equally outraged. One lamb in particular who wished to remain anonymous said that Campanile’s comments were very “baaaad.”

This isn’t the first time that Campanile has made offensive comments while discussing the weather. In 2003, he caused quite a stir among African-Americans after he said that “April showers bring niggers flowers.”
