It Takes One To Know One

Gay Horse

It’s a well known fact that homosexuality exists in the animal kingdom. Who can forget those two adorable homo penguins, whose relationship, like all media spotlighted couplings (we’ve still yet to get over Nick and Jessica), came to a sad end.

But can you tell if an animal is gay just by looking at them? A young Brit, with the aid of his favorite alcoholic beverage, seems to have developed animal gaydar! Sam Brown approached a mounted cop and explained to him that his horse was most likely a bottom:

Mr. Brown, 21, a student at Oxford University, had said to an officer: “Excuse me, do you realise your horse is gay?”

Police took the case to court after Mr. Brown refused to pay a £80 fine.

Mr. Brown, who made the comment during a night out with friends in Oxford after his final exams, was arrested under section 5 of the Public Order Act for making homophobic remarks.

The case has been dropped, leaving Mr. Brown free to out animals all over Britain.
