Thai Restaurant Is Fine With Guide Dogs, Just Not Homosexual Guide Dogs

Thai Spice, the restaurant in Adelaide, Australia, that one reviewer notes has “lots of room between tables, but please clean the empty plates and glasses off the table,” has nothing wrong with blind persons bringing guide dogs into the restaurant. They even have a sign! But Nudge, a guide dog belonging to Ian Jolly, was too gay to be that close to delicious curry, and was refused entry — along with its owner. The restaurant has been forced to offer a written apology and pay US$1,400 to Jolly. In defending itself to South Australia’s Equal Opportunity Tribunal, the owners said in a statement, “The staff genuinely believed that Nudge was an ordinary pet dog which had been desexed to become a gay dog.” Better now?

      “…had been desexed to become a gay dog.”

      How did they know the dog was gay? Was it lisping when it barked? Instead of running around the restaurant did it swish instead?? Was the dog a total bitch to the restaurant staff because they weren’t wearing D&G outfits? Inquiring minds want to know…

      Why would they not let in a gay dog? Other than the fact that he would most likely sniff all the busboy’s crotches. Which … you know … is wrong, and stuff.

      “Why would they not let in a gay dog?”

      Obviously, a gay dog would inform its owner of how pretentious and passe’ the restaurant’s menu and decor was, have witty anecdote’s about authentic Thai cuisine, and pointed out that jalapeno’s are really not a suitable substitute for Thai bird chili’s.
