"I just can't quit you" is this year's "You had me at hello" catch-phrase.
With the Internet, spoof videos are available near-instantly around the world. And there are some great ones for "Brokeback Mountain".
Late night comedians (and water cooler comedians) are making it their daily mission to deliver the newest funny (David Letterman sampler: "Top 10 Signs You Are a Gay Cowboy -- #1 reason: You love riding, but you don't have a horse.").
Even if it doesn't win a raft of Academy Awards (although they sure look like favorites with 8 nominations and a heavy ad campaign), Brokeback Mountain is already spawning some of the best Internet spoofs in recent movie memory.
You can find dozens of takeoffs on the gay cowboy romance, from the homemade BrokeMac Mountain to Brokeback to the Future, a trailer so professionally and cleverly done that Hollywood could take a cue on how to do an effective coming attraction. And it doesn't give away the ending like most promos now genderally do!

Yeah, I'm sure God is really pissed that some people want to take His name off of our money, the very thing that most often distances people from God. Get over yourself, and stop being surprised that--gasp--COWBOYS could be gay!? Most amusingly, your Wild West Cowboy notion is an idea generated by Hollywood, an arena often dominated by creative, intelligent, wealthy GAY men.
