We Found Out How to Make Believe the Perry Trial Is Hilarious

If you’re following the live Twitter feed of the Perry case, you are probably familiar with the names ADFmedia, NCLRights, Chris_Stoll, and FedcourtJunkie. But while these noble tweeters are giving you the straight play-by-play out of San Francisco, there’s another operator who’s treating the federal Prop 8 trial as a comedic playground. Meet protectmawwiage, the brilliant account that’s parodying everything coming out of the official protectmarriage account.

It’s not exactly an apples-to-apples translation of Yes On 8’s bigot-based tweets, but where else are you going to find 140-character punchlines about marriage equality?

But uh oh, there goes somebody ripping off Protect Marriage’s trademarked logo again!

    Oh, here’s what is really hilarious – Tam making a fool of
    himself. He should start a second career as a writer for Monte Python (‘B’ is Boies, ‘T’ is Tam):

    [Prop. 8 objects to questions about this website because it does not have anything to do with Prop. 8.]

    B: Your honor, this was already admitted in the testimony of Ms. Zia. This website says that homosexuality leads to pedophilia. Do you believe that?

    T: Yes, I do.

    B: Reads: Homosexuals 12 times more likely to molest children. Appropriate for your organization to tell people that?

    T: Which organization?

    B: The organization of which you are secretary that puts out this website!

    T: Yes. From what we see here, those are not the statements of the organization. Those are just links to other websites. My position is that if there is something like this that people want to read about, organization has the right to link it.

    B: You are not just linking. Your website says that homosexuals are 12 times more likely to molest children.

    T: It’s in that website. It’s not from the organization.

    B: Mr. Tam, this is print out from your website!

    T: From the organization. But I’m only secretary. There are presidents and vice presidents.

    B: Do you believe that homosexuals are more likely to molest children?

    T: Yes, I do.

    B: Based on what?

    T: From academic papers.

    B: Which academic papers?

    T: Some could be news and some could be journalists.

    B: I’m not asking you what it could be. Was it a book? An article? Who wrote it?

    T: I don’t remember. I don’t know.

    Regarding No. 1, I forgot the citation for Tam’s testimony: it’s from the website (hit the ‘submit’ button a tad too soon).
