Patton Oswalt on Arguments Against Gay Marriage

Pretty hilarious:

From Patton Oswalt’s Finest Hour. In the same show he is as funny as can be on romantic comedies and on “gay friend” tropes in movies. The DVD is coming soon.

(Thanks to Leanna for the video.)

    Love Patton Oswalt. Here’s the YouTube video that includes the above clip on gay marriage as well as his thoughts on the Flying Spaghetti Monster theory. Looking forward to seeing the DVD in its entirety.

    I saw him do the gay tv friend at a comic convention in Chicago. He is great.

    Actually it reminds me that now there is a show Happy Endings with a gay friend who is totally not stereotypical, unless you think of him as a stereotypical “straight fratboy d-bag” which is how he acts. Funny I don’t know any gay people anywhere that act like that. Though I have a self-selecting sample since I couldn’t stand someone who did.
