Not Welcome



A slice of home security footage that went viral shows two Mormon missionaries arriving at a front door somewhere in Indiana and noticing a doormat with the words “Gayest Place in Town,” whereupon they take one look at each other and bolt. The blogosphere loved it because it shows these two soldiers of God dressed in regulation short-sleeved dress shirts, ties, and slacks being scared off by a doormat. The two women who live in the house, who became instant (albeit short-lived) celebrities, told the press that they were just thankful for “the fact that it actually worked! … It was a great investment.” The doormat served to amuse their friends “with the added benefit of keeping religious zealots from knocking on our door to tell us about their god.”
