The Hanging at Knotts seemed to have extra gay jokes (and Universal references) last night, glad that guy didn't go there.

I'm hoping someone at Universal doesn't decide to tone down the whole event. It will be interesting to see what impact this has on next year's event.

John has already stated on his twitter Bill and Ted's is the one area he has nothing to do with at HHN, so I doubt it will have any impact on the rest of the event.

^Thanks, good to know. I think John would put up a hell of a fight if they tried. I'm presuming the event is a big money spinner for the Universal, and that's what talks to corporate.

In the Florida one Superman and the male Leiah (or maybe it was Adam Levine, I can't remember) hook up. It's subtle but it was there.

Kanye threw away a baby because it was a girl.


I think I saw the same thing as you but I thought they were doing pantomiming the Eiffel Tower position without 'the middle'.

Also, the Kanye scene was a parody of the beginning of Man of Steel.

It should also be noted that Superman is copyrighted character and it would be hard for Universal to justify it's inclusion in the show as ''fair use'' since it didn't parody or satire anything from Man of Steel or the comics.

DC Comics/Warner Bros. gave a cease and desist to Universal for the infamous 2006 show that almost got the show cancelled for good.

I think it would qualify as parody, as it is spoofing how superman is always portrayed as the typical "manly man."

I wonder how the vice writer would have dealt with the days of Monty Python and their jokes against pretty much everything.... probably the same way Graham Chapman's (who was also openly gay but wrote these sketches) character used to at the end of the sketches. Closest example I could think of in relation to what upset the writer over Bill&Ted.
