"Michele Bachmann's Husband Shares Her / Bathhouse: THE Hotel"

This is what you get when you run a story about what an anti-gay busybody gay-hater Michele Bachmann's husband is: contextual placement of the gayest ad ever made. (Also, who named their Mandalay Bay hotel "BATHHOUSE"? Good grief! And that picture! I can't… figure out… what they're selling! Is it… hot intergenerational gay sex? Cool!) Anyone, someone caught on, and now the Washington Post is all LL Bean all the time. It's a straightwash!

@zidaane The Church of Scientology bought the entire hotel.

My word. The only way that ad could be gayer is if it sprayed glitter out of your screen every time you refreshed the page.

Why is that man's nipple STARING at me???

@jolie: WOMEN. Why can't you just appreciate the attention instead of complaining about a nipple objectifying you??

Where's the "Bears" tag?

"The Bathhouse" is the ritzy spa at Mandalay Bay's Suite Hotel, "The Hotel," and yes, it is the worst name ever for what is actually a really nice space at a really nice Vegas hotel. The ad is doing nothing to help on that front.

I, for one, have that same ad appearing on The Awl's website!

Er', I think that ad is the targeted sort which depends on what data they can extract from the cookies in the readers browser. It has nothing to do with the story and everything to do with the guy reading it.
