Why staying up makes you fat.

Norway is funding the world's first museum exhibit on gay animals. Examples: beetles, parrots, penguins, and swans. "One photograph shows two giant erect penises flailing above the water as two male right whales rub together. Another shows a male giraffe mounting another for sex." Previously, a zoo in Holland featured gay animal couples. Exhibit organizers' view: "Homosexuality is found throughout the animal kingdom, it is not against nature." Right-wing Christian view: The organizers should "burn in hell." Cynical view: Maybe homophobia is natural, too. (For Human Nature's take on homosexuality, polygamy, and nature, click here.
