More Gays are Getting Gay Married in Gay Iowa


Iowans have already had two months to bask in their place in history, as citizens of America’s third state to grant marriage equality to The Gays. And yet, not every gay couple has taken advantage of the ability to file joint (state!) tax returns. Which means marriage applications are up. Who’s responsible for these shenanigans? Lesbians! Seventy percent of the applications are coming from the ladies, generating all sorts of U-Haul jokes among county recorders.
