Anyone else find these similes friggin' hilarious? My favorite ones that I've heard from the SDMB:
Gay as a box of birds
Gay as a tap dancing hyena (my current favorite)

I've also heard
Gay as a goose (the first one I can recall hearing, from an episode of 'Cheers')
Gay as a french horn
Gayer than cum on a mustache (some comedian, can't recall who)
Gayer than eight guys blowing nine guys (comedian Patton Oswalt)
Gay as a chaise lounge

I used to say "gayer than the Pride parade they throw in West Hollywood every year." A little long, and plus I think I need to update my reference now that I'm not in Los Angeles anymore, but twas my go-to nonetheless.

There was one from an episode of Weeds a couple seasons back that I can't recall exactly, but it was something like:

...gay as a purse full of glitter and rainbows (or maybe unicorns, although I'm sure any combination of the three would work).

Yes, true dat. Plus, he said "Gay as a King" but stopped short of adding "Gay as a Queen." Had he added that, I would have forgiven the whole glurge infused post.

I like "Gayer than Gay Gayerson"

One day, my SO finally asked me---"Who is Gay Gayerson?"

As far as I remember that line is from the episode of Roseanne where Martin Mull's character is getting married to his boyfriend and he has massive cold feet. She's trying to calm him down and he's going on "Maybe I'm not even gay! I mean, I like sports! I--"

she stops him: "Do you like to have sex with men?"

Him: "Well, yes....but..."

Her: "GAY!!! Gayer than Gay Gayerson!"

That was a great show.

Does it have to be "as"?

Gayer than a pink feathered boa at the New Orleas Pride Parade.

Dude's as gay as a pink flamingo. What, you mean flamingos aren't all gay? Damn, they sure are pink!

(Don't ask me why, but it's usually NO and not SF - and for bonus points, in Spain someone who's flaming is said to "have feathers").

On a related note, I've always liked "He's so far in the closet he's eating turkish delight with the witch queen of Narnia".

I really hate to admit this, but I am not getting a lot of these at all. For example, french horn. And all of these.
Gay as a mayor
Gay as a playwright
Gay as a head of state
Gay as a Nobel Prize winner
Gay as a king
Gay as a painter
Gay as a mother
Gay as a father
Gay as a brother
Gay as a sister

A lot of the ones in this thread are pretty obvious (and I think the subtle ones are funnier) but these are just so out there I don't get it. Will I spoil the thread if I have to ask? :)

Will I spoil the thread if I have to ask? :)None of them were meant to be funny. I don't find gay stereotypes to be particularly humorous, and some can be hurtful. Some of the ones presented in this thread are the equivalent of "Gay as something inconsequential".

On a related note, I've always liked "He's so far in the closet he's eating Turkish delight with the witch queen of Narnia".

I once read a fanfiction in which a woman described a male friend as "so far in the closet he's handing me my shoes."

Sometimes I say "gay as a Gucci bag full of rainbows." Not sure where I read it, but it sounded funny to me. I've also heard someone, probably my brother, call his friend something like "gayer than a gay guy at Gay Land on 'gays get in free' day."

Of course, there's an obvious Narnia version of that one too.

I heard somewhere "he's so deep in the closet that he's finding Christmas presents".

Of course, there's an obvious Narnia version of that one too.

My brain supplies "...so deep in the closet he gave Mr. Tumnis a reacharound."

No idea if I heard that somewhere or if it's just so darn obvious.

Turkish delight.

My family's go-to for superlatives was, "Xer than X McX, Xest man in the world." I think it's from Blackadder, or might just be home-grown weirdness.

So, Gayer than Gay McGay, I guess.

Let's please keep talk of peophiles out of threads about homosexuality.

It was "so gay he farts glitter." While I have stolen.

A friend of mine is especially fond of the variant "Gay as a Halston sun dress."

Freddy Mercury once described himself as "Gay as the Queen of the May" which I thought had a nice poetry to it.
