Thanks to everyone for participating! The winner is …. IT’S A TIE! Two readers had the same amount of votes, and because they’re both such great captions, I can’t decide between the two, so they’re both winners!

One Million Moms is slipping, and it’s so sad. It took them two weeks to declare “The Real O’Neals ridicules Jesus and Christianity.” The One Million Moms I loved would have been on this the first night.


Sacha Baron Cohen quit Freddie Mercury biopic because surviving Queen members were gonna make it horrible.

Here’s the Friday Puzzler! “Stars & Stripes”


And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.

This week our 155th ShoutOUT™ is to … David Monahan

Closing out our week with David, he and husband Larry Sullivan became huge viral stars when their Campbell’s soup Star Wars commercial came out last year. Sadly, it led to backlash (of course), but it also helped nab them roles (as a married couple) on HBO’s upcoming series Big Little Lies alongside Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Alexander Skarsgård.

 

 


Over the next few weeks we’ll have a lot of fun looking at 20 Songs Everyone Knows That Didn’t Hit The Top 40! These are all songs that have become a part of pop culture history, but failed on the chart when they were originally released. Songs that, through inclusion in films, TV, or other medium have managed to withstand the test of time.

Note – We’ll also include a couple of songs that were never actually released a singles, but have also become classics.

At #11 is “Red Right Hand” by Nick Cave.

Australian alternative artist Nick Cave and his band The Bad Seeds have been recording for over 30 years, but have never hit the U.S. singles chart (and they didn’t have a charting album until 1997), but have amassed an enormous cult following over the years.

The 1994 single “Red Right Hand” was a chart flop around the world (it only charted in two places, the Australian chart at #62, and the UK chart at #68) but this creepy, nightmarish tale has been utilized to great effect in pop culture, including one of the most memorable episodes of The X-Files, and it became the theme song of the Scream film series. More recently, a cover version is used as the opening theme for the UK series Peaky Blinders

Cardboard cut outs of the faces of three candidates for the Republican nomination for the 2016 US Presidential election (L-R) Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio, are seen set up on urinals in a pub in London on March 1, 2016 as part of an informal poll for customers to log which they dislike the most. Part of the satirical television show The Last Leg, customers at the pub are able to choose which urinal to use and then log their poll on a list on the wall afterwards. / AFP / JUSTIN TALLIS        (Photo credit should read JUSTIN TALLIS/AFP/Getty Images)
