Does anyone know about this? Ren & Stimpy are back on Spike TV (the new tnn) and they're gay! :(

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/story/91274p-82972c.html

"Ren & Stimpy Adult Cartoon Party": Once a favorite on Nickelodeon, the duo is back - this time as a gay couple. Not a minute goes by without a gag about bodily fluids, so keep the TV dinner on ice while watching.

So the pitcher/catcher joke that's in all of those ads isn't just a one-shot joke????? I guess the old R&S just wasn't stomach-churning enough.

I was surprised and offended at the homosexual references throughout the program. I thought this was supposed to be "The First TV Channel for Men".

I defy anyone to classify Powdered Toast Man as anything other than gay, gay, gay.

"The First TV Channel for Men".

Must be of the "It's Raining Men" variety.

I could never eat while watching Ren & Stimpy, even before they were gay, lol. The whole show needed a gag-alert, literally!

I'll stick with Futurerama and Family Guy. I know there's a bunch of leftist crap in them, but, they are funny.
South Park rules as far a sticking it to the left though.

Hey, don't forget "King of the Hill." Not only is it a funny cartoon, but it is the most conservative network TV show out there.

I dunno....there were always insinuation that Ren and Stimpy were gay. I remember in one Christmas ep, Ren slyly went: "Look, Steempy...mistletoe" and Stimpy replied, annoyed, "Oh, Ren, is that ALL you think about?"

"Look, Steempy...mistletoe"

Coffee out the nose! I heard Ren's insinuating voice!

I suddenly recall why I liked those cartoons.."Steempy, you useless sack of protoplasm!"

LOL! But gay??? I had never thought so; perverted generally, yes. ;^)

Ren & Stimpy suck anyway.

(sniff) Discriminating cartoon viewers prefer Pinky and the Brain.

I'm with you! South Park does rule. Last night I saw my favorite episode ever, "Timmy and The Lords of the Underworld", when Timahhhh! becomes a rock star. The co-plot was that a doctor in town diagnosed all of the kids with ADD, and was conspiring with the local pharmacist to make money from Ritalin stock. Chef (Issac Hayes) saved the day again, blah, blah, blah... Anywho, I watched the first 5 minutes of the "new" Ren & Stimpy the other night and had to turn it off. It turned my stomach! Give me "2 Stupid Dogs" anyday! Happy 4th ya'll. The ribs are almost done...PyroMan

Mark my words. It's going to slowly morph into a gay men's channel. The owners could not get funding for a gay men's channel outright and this is a stealth way of doing it. Watch the programming as it slowly changes.

It was either Ren or Stimpy, I am not sure, but one of them was rumored to be Rock Hudson's gay toy anime.

No, more like heavy coverage of men's "bodybuilding" contests and the like.

I have some on tape. I think there is some sort of problems with the videos in the cartoons (ownership rights). My favorite (which I don't have) is when Beavis and Butthead are forced to join PAT (positive acting teens), and Mr. Buzzcut somehow takes over the group at the end.

One time, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine, who I thought was normal, wanted to discuss with me the differnces between the different Star Trek incarnations.

I ran away. I changed my phone number.

Another sign that the "men's channel" is not a channel for men. They should fold up their tent now. These media morons have no clue what will make men want to watch.

What? It's always been the first weekend of June. There was no "June Bugs" that weekend. When was it?

So, would it me more moral to give Geordi sight or make Data human?
