Brokeback Shirts Sale Provide Media With Quote of the Year

Brokeback Mountain Shirts

A longtime gay activist has purchased the shirts that Ennis and Jack wore in Brokeback Mountian for 101,100.51. The money will go directly to Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern California. More importantly, Tom Gregory, our new favorite person, also just gave us the quote of the year:

They really are the ruby slippers of our time,” said Gregory, 45.

A longtime gay activist, Gregory plans to keep the shirts “as they were, on the hanger, entwined.”

“I would never wear them, put them on, or separate them,” he said.

Not only does the man give to charity, but he knows how to make good copy as well. He said he’s not going to take them apart, but if he’s a pervert like us, he might just smell them a bit. Eue du Jake. Yum.
