Brokeback mountain

Brokeback mountain, for those not in the know is gay love western story "embued with heartbreaking universality, helped by the moving performances of Ledger and Gyllenhaal". Beside the photo-copier the other day in the office I asked a rather conservative, film-buff colleague of mine if he seen the film? He replied

'No I haven't. Not really my sort of thing you see'.

Another colleague, attempting to join in our conversation said,

"What film is this? Is it that gay western? What's it called again, Bare-back mountain?"

And he was completely serious.
