2 US men arrested on gay cruise in Caribbean

ROSEAU, Dominica (AP) - Two California men on a gay cruise of the Caribbean were arrested Wednesday in Dominica, where sex between two men is illegal.

Police Constable John George said police boarded the cruise ship and arrested the two men on suspicion of indecent exposure and "buggery," a term equivalent to sodomy on the island. He identified the men as John Robert Hart, 41, and Dennis Jay Mayer, 43, but did not provide their hometowns.

George said the men were seen having sex on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship by someone on the dock.

Captain Ned: "Now, men, I run a mans' ship. I will run it in a manful and masculine way! I will tolerate no men under my command who act in such a way so as to discredit their manhood and manliness! Do I make myself clear?"

Miles Cowperthwaite V/O: "If there were any doubts as to Captain Ned's severity, they were quickly dispelled that very afternoon, when a scuffle broke out on deck."

[ Spunk approaches a Sailor tanning ]

First Mate Spunk: That's my tanning spot! you! You're in my spot! That's my spot!

Sailor #1: You are daft! I've been here all morning. Now, run along, you are blocking my sun.

First Mate Spunk: Don't you give me any back-sass, you tan tease!

[ fight breaks out; Captain Ned intervenes ]

Captain Ned: Is this how men act on a man's ship? Where is your manliness? Fighting on deck is a serious breach on my articles of strict discipline! I'm afraid the guilty party is in for a very severe punishment!

Sailor #1: Captain.. I did indeed take Mr. Spunk's spot. I'm ready to accept my punishment..

First Mate Spunk: Captain! I threw the first blow. If anyone is to be punished, let it be me. I ask only that whatever you do, please don't put me in a tight-fitting Lassie costume and make me eat from a monogrammed dog dish.

Sailor #2: [ entering ] Captain, I encouraged this fight - punish me! Make me wear nipple-pinching clothespins, sir!

Sailor #3: [ entering ] Me, Captain! Punish me!

Captain Ned: Stop! I've heard enough! Your manly admission of guilt is most manful. However, as your Captain, it is I who must bear the full masculine responsibility! And therefore, I will be punished. Spunk! Take me alone! I want a boiling oil rub..

“Men”
—Martin Mull

Umm, Captain Klumpz....
Yes, Malarkey?
The men haven’t eaten in days, sir.
Yes Malarkey.
Captain, I don’t think you fully understand. I said the men have not eaten in days now.
I heard you, Malarkey, thank you.
Captain, you’ve gone quite mad. I’m telling you for the last time, the men have not eaten in days!
Well, force them! You’ve plenty of men, haven’t you?
Plenty, sir.
Plenty of what, sir?
Men, sir!
What?!
Men!
What?!
Men! Men! MEN! Men!

Men, Men, Men, Men
Men, Men, Men, Men
Men, Men, Men, Men
Men, Men, Men, Men

It’s great to be on a ship with men and sail across the sea-o,
We don’t know where we’ll land or when, but it’s great to be with men
It’s great to be with men

‘Cause men can sweat and men can stink and no one seems to care-o,
We’ll throw the dishes in the sink and clog the drain with hair-o,
(Clog the drain with hair-o)

Men, men, men.
It’s a ship all filled with men.
So batten down the ladies room; there’s no one here but men
Men, Men, Men, Men
Men, Men, Men, Men

There’s men above, there’s men below, there’s men down in the galley,
There’s Butch and Spike And Buzz and Biff
And one guy we call Sally
(And one guy we call Sally)

Men, men, men.
It’s a ship all filled with men.
You’ll never have to lift the seat; there’s no one here but men
Men, Men, Men, Men
Men, Men, Men, Men

We’re men and friends until the end and none of us are sissies,
At night we sleep in separate beds and blow each other kissies
(And blow each other kissies)

Men, men, men.
It’s a ship all filled with men.
So throw your rubbers overboard; there’s no one here but men
Ahhhhhhhhh, Mennnnn.

Yes it's buggery on the high seas and sodomy on the island.

I will never get the hang of all these legalise distinctions.

If I recall correctly, a few years ago, Rosie O’Donnell filled a cruise ship with homosexual families. And if I recall correctly, they denied Rosie and her ship permission to dock somewhere in the Caribbean.

Gays should really be thankful in America that they are treated so well, compared to some other places in the world.

Maybe good advice considering this incident, is don’t try to shove it down the throat of other countries which aren’t as tolerant as we are.

Frommer's Tips for Travelers

Snip: Most of the gay and lesbian community regards the Cayman Islands as gay-hostile as opposed to gay-friendly.

In 1998 the Cayman Islands government notoriously turned away Norwegian Cruise Lines Leeward, which was carrying 900 gay passengers. The tourism directors at George Town stated at the time: "We cannot count on this group to uphold the standards of appropriate behavior expected of visitors to the Cayman Islands." The decision drew massive protest in America, with many groups, even travel agents, discouraging travel to the Cayman Islands or calling for a complete boycott of the Cayman Islands.

The question that hasn’t yet been asked’

“What if a ‘straight’ couple were observed (from the dock) having sex in their cabin”?

Reminds me of the old chestnut that ends

“Ma’am, I really can’t see anything” -
“Officer, just pull that table over and climb on top of the refrigerator and if you stand up, you get a good view into their apartment”.
