Shame, David Hughes, Shame!

Earlier this morning, David Hughes, who has been a friend and a colleague for many years, posted the following to twitter:

DHughesy i ate a bowl of all bran type product, 2 scoops of yoghurt & cup of skim milk. ps i am gay

DHughesy and an inch and a half of snickers

The half a Snickers I can understand being called gay, because, technically, it is having a mouthful of nuts, but the health nonsense? Gay? Please. Next he'll be calling that rank bogan Shannon from the Biggest Loser gay. I'm sure that will go over well...



Maybe "snickers" is a

Maybe "snickers" is a euphemism for something else. You never know with country boys.

Unless, of course, Hughesy

Unless, of course, Hughesy was actually coming out.
After detailing his breakfast seems an odd time to make the announcement, but I think he should be applauded for this massive step.

interesting publicity angle

coming out on twitter? it is a bold step...
