Well, after a grueling morning spent watching The View, as one might have expected, it was the nerd of the bunch, Whoopi Goldberg, who announced that “Marvel is making history with an issue on sale tomorrow, as Northstar will propose to Kyle with a gay wedding in a future issue.”
This prompted Joy Behar to ask “Can Batman and Robin come out of the closet now?”
Goldberg went on to say that when she was a kid reading comics she never saw an array of people, so this was a very good thing, prompting Behar to say that “Marvel is cutting edge.”
Then the panel moved on to a university that had mistakenly labeled a department “The department of Pubic Affairs.”
Tee hee hee!
