Headline of the Year

There is no question that I am easily amused; even so, I found a headline in today's Philadelphia Inquirer to be really special:

"Gay-porn twins are burglars, police say"

My first thought was "overachievers!" I mean, most identical twins would be content to be either gay-porn stars or burglars...and these guys managed to juggle two separate, and uniquely demanding, careers.

But then I realized this was simply another poignant example of the sorry state of today's economy. It's tragic that a couple of dudes can't make enough money to support themselves doing whatever it is guys do in a gay film (alright, I know what they do, but being a mom I'm contractually prohibited from using the terminology) and have to resort to moonlighting in breaking and entering.

And then I actually read the article. It was even better than I expected! One twin, Taleon, is a gymnast and karate expert who managed a 2006 escape from police by kicking out a cruiser window and jumping into a lake...swimming away while handcuffed.

The other twin, Keyontyli, has a funky name. Oh, and he attended the Barbizon School of Modeling.

This story has all the making of a Lifetime TV movie. (Are you allowed to reference gay porn on Lifetime? If not, there's always Logo.)

The boys reportedly perform under the names "Teyron" and "Keyron"... and the Inquirer tells me they "shared an infamous sex scene with porn superstar Marc Williams." Which just goes to show that you can be a porn "superstar" and I still won't know who-the-freak you are. My life is so, so sheltered.

And how were our handsome soon-to-be-made-into-a-TV-movie twins caught? Breaking into a beauty parlor.

Thank you for posting about this. I've been feeling like I am the only person who cares about this stupendous current event. This is without a doubt the craziest story pretty much ever.

I can't wait for Law & Order to rip it from the headlines!

Law & Order! Why didn't I think of that? I am definitely not watching enough primetime television. Damn internet.

So Law & Order that I can't believe it hasn't happened.

Keyontyli is pronounced "Bruce". I am so sorry to be so far behind on my blog reading! And I regret we do not have such stunning headlines here in DC. Man, I gotta move north...

Or are they "turd- burglars"? And was their video a gay incest video? In which case it is really a closed-circuit, and not that much of a wonder after all...
