That is not the real Dolly Parton in the picture above. Nor is it the real Amy Winehouse. If it were — it would be an even more amazing picture to go along with Episode 19!
(As far as I can tell, that’s also not the real Janis Joplin. The jury is out as to whether Debbie Gibson is genuine or not.)
Earlier this month at one of the Dollywood theme parks in Knoxville, TN a park patron was asked by the gate staff to turn her shirt inside-out. The reason? The slogan printed on her shirt, “Marriage is So Gay,” could be deemed offensive by other visitors in the park in this “family-friendly” environment. Did the park staff overreact? Was the t-shirt potentially incendiary? Join us as we discuss this.
And we also talk about the recent death of musician Amy Winehouse — and the reactions we’ve seen about the way she lived her life.
