View Full Version : What's a "Gay BLT"?

There was a story on the news about vermin in a restaurant. As part of the story, the film loop showed the menu of the place, which had listed "Soylent Green Omelet" (okay, harharhar) and then a "GBLT". I only caught a quick glimpse of the dish description underneath, which clearly said ". . .gay bacon lettuce tomato. . ."

I've wracked my brain, but can't even come up with a decent joke about it, unless we're talking condiments.

Seems to just be a basic pun.

GLBT becomes GBLT just by transposing two letters.

GLBT is a common initialism for gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender. So switch two of the letters and you get a sammich that throws like a girl.

I was hoping for a BLT with guacamole on it. :(

If I was running that restaurant, my Gay BLT would be a sandwich made out of lettuce, tomato, and bologna.

Customer: What the fuck, there's no bacon in this sandwich!
Me: Yep, I know.
Customer: Is this bologna? Why the hell is there bologna in a BLT? Bologna tastes nothing like bacon!
Me: Exactly.
Customer: So why do you call it a BLT?
Me: See the menu? It says: Gay BLT.
Customer: So what?
Me: Doesn't it feel like you just got f-ed in the a-?
Customer: Well..
Me: ...prison style...

Shouldn't there be a tossed salad in here somewhere? Peanut butter? Jelly? Syrup? All of these are fine condiments on certain sammiches. Especially when dusted with magical fairy anal nodules.

Geez, I'm completely out of touch.

Everyone says their bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwiches are fabulous.

I've always wondered why the G and L have suddenly become transposed. I was always taught it was LGBT. Are there not some overzealous women's rights groups that are upset?

don't ask

I always use aioli on mine. Maybe they use gaioli.

I've only seen it written this way. It sounds wrong in my head to pronounce it GLBT.

My mom used to make BLATs: Bacon, Lettuce, Avacado, and Tomato. Mostly the same.

My first thought was that a gay BLT would have avocado on it. I don't know why I thought of avocado, maybe because it's a big fruit.

I spell it both ways, pretty much interchangeably.

And to me, it's obvious that a GBLT contains a big, over-ripe banana.

Bacon, lettuce, tomato and a gay. Don't get the Nathan Lane. It's very high fat. I get the Rob Halford myself.

Can I have mine with the gay on the side? I'm trying to cut down.

But it's a FAT fruit, so I'm thinking.....no...

I would have thought a gay BLT has fudge packed into it.

They toss the salad before putting in the bacon.

It has fish sticks.

Do you like fish sticks?

When I ordered my BLT, the cook stood behind the waiter and reached it around to me.

It comes with a side order of haggis.

Shouldn't that be fag haggis?

tr0psn4j: You like to put fish sticks in your mouth? What are you, a gay fish?

Guacamole, baloney, lard and tuna. Yum!

Does it come with a tea bag on the side?

does the B stand for Bear and T for Twinkie?

Mmm gay bear, lettuce, and twinkie sandwich...

Is the place owned by the same person that made those Drunken Negro Head cookies?

My guess would be a gay BLT is some reject from Kitchen Nightmares. Ketchup is tomatoes right. Leave off the ketchup. This is why you have no customers.
