Mayor Bloomberg's latest tourism target

Here's Drinking with Bob on another waste of taxpayer money - marketing NYC to gay tourists. This is funny.

"Drinking with Bob" makes interesting points BUT he's not funny. He's aesthetically unpleasing. Some guy screaming in your face, shaking his finger at you violently, spittle dripping from his mouth, slurring words? I haven't laughed once at this character. Sorry.

I'll have to disagree with you, George. I love the delivery. He sums up how I feel about a lot of things and displays the outrage and anger appropriately and humorously.

Wow - poor guy is going to pop blood vessels - needs to watch himself - we need him around for the long term - appreciate his viewpoint. Quite effective message - he's right 30M bucks down the tubes.

I think word-of-mouth is more the way people decide on a vacation destination nowadays. This is a waste of money.

Whattsa matter....
Bloomberg can't afford enough high end hustlers
to fulfill his love preferences?

Let him move to Provincetown.

There's plenty of "trade" there.

Just expand Chelsea.

Reconstruct the High Line
and connect it to the outer boroughs.

"I just woke up .....it was a Chelsea morning....
and the first thing that I knew....."

(It had expanded into Queens
and encompassed Brooklyn too).

I like the line about Oklahoma needing more cowboys.

I think he meant to infer that Bloomberg
is more interested in "MIDNIGHT COWBOYS"....
at least as a voting block.

What's hizzoner going to wear at the next
GV Halloween parade.....a black leather mini ?

Fred. You find him f-u-n-n-y? Uncle Floyd is funny, Abbott & Costello, Laurel & Hardy. Bob is NOT funny. He makes points but not funny.

Isn't it cheap to swish and vamp with homophobia? Hey Bob, how long would that bit fly with Baciagalup and Blackface these days?

I think people need to stop being so sensitive. People have been poking fun of each other since the dawn of time. Comedians joke about gays, blacks, yuppies, hipsters, women, etc and it can all be funny without being offensive. Humor is a subjective thing. Lots of people find Rosie O'Donnell, Gilbert Gottfried and Bobcat Goldthwaite funny. I reach for my remote whenever they come on my TV screen.

The $30 million that the city spends to attract gay tourists still falls short of the campaign targeting property-hunting European tourists.
The City Council speaker is gay, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that she is sending city money towards gay causes.

Maybe we should spend 30 mil to attrat more type A personalitoes like Bob to NYC. Afterall, theya are just heart attacks waiting to happen.

Actually I just heard about a great gimmick.....
rubber stamps and ink pads being provided
in all gay spots some years back.

The stamp read "GAY MONEY"......
and patrons were encouraged to stamp
their bank notes with it before making payment.

This is a brilliant idea!

We should adopt this and stamp all our paper money
with the words "NYC MIDDLE CLASS MONEY"
to get hizzoner's attention !

Your not worried about the $30,000,000.This a subject you chose to scpaegoat from your true identity crisis and a poor subject to use as your weapon. Your worried you might turn queer and your definetley without a doubt have some sugar in your tank from the anger in your voice. I see it right throught you, or you had some one molest you as a child and this is the way you suppress these feelings. I don't hate you you need to seek theraphy about oppose to knocking a senseless subject to hide around your childhood issues
