George Takei, the former Mr. Sulu who has reinvented himself as an internet wunderkind, yesterday shared the funniest picture to come out of Minnesota's gay marriage legalization.


Labeling it an "epic photobomb win," Takei posted the photo of a woman holding a sign reading, "Your pink sign is so gay" and an arrow pointing to a man advocating against gay marriage.

Almost 129,000 of his fans on Facebook have liked the post since he posted it 14 hours ago, with 21,640 choosing to share it with their friends.

UPDATE: The clever photobomber in this viral photo has been identified on the City Pages Facebook page as Laura Thompson, a social media marketing manager from Woodbury.

Mr Sulu needs to be Beamed up from the Planet Uranus. The Pink Sign Holder is trying to appeal to the more rational folks that understand what it takes for Creation.

Actually, that sign is homophobic. It's another way to use "that's so gay" as an insult. We think it's funny because of the context (straight man holding the sign). Talk about internalized homophobia.. unless this is the work of some well-meaning "ally". Thanks, "ally", I think we got this one. You can go back to Woodbury.

I don't think "wunderkind" means what you think it means.

That's pretty darned funny.  Juvenile, but funny.

I feel bad for the guy with the pink signs, though.  I'm a dad, married to a mom.  I can't imagine feeling that my status and self-worth were somehow diminished by other parents; people whom I know all through my life and are my neighbors, co-workers, fellow parents; people I see at school functions, parks, in the alley, everywhere I go;  being accorded the same status and privileges I get just by virtue of being a parent and in a stable, committed relationship.

I guess I'm a lot more secure, and I take my validation more from my own experiences.  And I'm long past any feeling that extending rights to others somehow dilutes my own.  Of course, as the eldest child in a long family, I had to get over that before I even entered school.  Some of us have apparently never had that incredibly empowering learning experience.

@Kent Klinger Yeah it takes a real genius to understand a couple of drunk, horny teens sans condom and common sense can have a child. But, hey, maybe I missed the part of letting gay people get married that also forbid heterosexuals from conceiving children or getting marriage licenses.

@Kent Klinger wow... Yes, those of us who fought and WON our rights are less rational, and you and your comments indicate such a high level of cerebral activity and rationality.  You must really think a lot of your prodigious mental powers...  too bad you all LOST!  fucking HAH! wait,. and again,. HAH!! now go masturbate while looking at your old army photos of when you were in Germany.  Remind me never to visit Wabasha.

@Ethan Without the ability to laugh at one's self, there is a great risk of having more in common with those that hate you, than with those who would stand with you.

@Ethan I think it's meant to be ironical.  Sort of a meta-homophobic joke about homophobia.  It's OK to just laugh.
