A guy in Tennessee sends his pit bull to the pound after suspecting his dog may be gay. The ensuing outrage resulted in the pooch being rescued. What struck me most about this story wasn’t so much the circumstances but this line from a CNN article: “According to the irreverent website Gawker, Facebook users had a hissy fit Wednesday when they found out the dog’s owner got rid of the animal after he (the dog, not the owner) humped another male dog.” I checked the original Gawker piece but found no use of the term “hissy fit” to describe the reaction. ‘Gay’ dog gets euthanasia reprieve – This Just In – CNN.com Blogs Hissy fit?

Okay, I’ll be honest. I don’t really remember much about this episode outside of the scene where McKay and Beckett argue over the cramped seating in the dart.
I do recall one of the fan sites, again, incorrectly stating that the working title of this episode was “Amort”, presumably based on the fact that some Art Department sketches contained the word “Amort” under Episode Title.
