An apology to a minority

Rick Moran asked me to join his radio program last night, and quoted my Starbucks screed: “There’s a sucker born every minute, and he’s almost certain to be American. We are boosters, enthusiasts, tent-evangelicals, fly-by-nighters, snake-oil salesmen and honky-tonkers as a people, and get swindled every time. Now, to tell a man that his coffee is disgusting is just a tad less offensive than explaining that his wife really is a shaved chimpanzee.” I want to repeat here the apology I made on the air last night: I intend no disrespect to any sexual minority, and did not mean any offense to PWAMTSC’s (people who are married to shaved chimpanzees).
