The Towleroad Guide to Brokeback Mountain
Poster Parodies

The Brokeback one-sheet has become fodder for many photoshop imitations. Interestingly, the poster itself was based on the Titanic poster.

  1. Excellent parodies. I love the "dumbfuck Mountain" and wish the NY times could have printed the title. Of course, if they had, I wouldn't have come looking or Googling for this site.
    Course, Dictator Dick will soon be closing down Google for daring to stand up to Totalitarian Bush's demands to give over its database.
    Enjoy what little freedoms you have. They'll be gone soon, since they've also taken over our election vote counting machinery, courtesy of Diebold.

  2. Don't worry. I'm a software engineer, who used to design classified software for the NSA and had a TS clearance. One way you can tell if Big Brother is checking you out is to notice the relative delays in how long it takes to get to you (ref. the little green bars below). Took an awful long time in my first post. Wonder what will happen here (we filter on words such as 'spy' 'terrorist' 'bomb' etc.)

  3. It's interesting that NY Times article that mentioned your collection of paraodies didn't bother to mention the Titanic poster "homage" (cough) that you and others have pointed out:

  4. The Brokeback Mountain spoofs about our president and his stupid staff members are well done and appropriate. It's a shame that our government leaders care more about themselves and buddies than about the country they lead.

  5. I think it is a shame when dumbells talk so bad about our president. I guess they think they could do better! Ha. You can tell by what they say that their education is lacking somewhere. After all, he is the leader of our great nation!

  6. The Posters are terrific. Of course the one featuring the Pres. is the best and so true.
    Is there one in the works featuring Alito?

  7. I must disagree with SKBARROW's post. As with the president, his grammar is flawed. It would seem then that his own education is lacking,as he accuses others.
    As for the assertion that George Bush is the leader of our great nation: Our nation is great. George Bush couldn't lead people to the bathroom if their bladders were full.

  8. These poster parodies are great! They have inspired me to break out photoshop and create some posters of my own. I plan on targeting televangelists like Pat Robertson or Dr. James Dobson. I'll let you know when they're ready for viewing.

  10. i feel that it is unfair that so many people are prejudiced against gay people. you make fun of them like thay aren't even real people! it's like they're circus clowns or someting! we are all god's children and although we all have diferent beliefs and views on life, that is no reason to make fun of people with different beliefs that we donot approve of. whoever is prejudiced of gays should be ashamed, bacause it is just as bad as being racist. just judging people based on one of their characteristics. morons. i actually like most gay people, because they are more understanding and willing to not judge people. we should all be more sensitive to people who seem different. you can be sure that straights seem different to gays too. so treat everyone, whites, blacks, latinos, gays, and straights kindly and with understanding, because you never know who might stereotype YOU.

  11. Do children have access to this crap? How can AOL justifie printing a word that is banned from television and radio. Should the FCC be made aware of AOL? I think they should.

  13. I don't think the FCC (a.k.a. the Federal Communications Commission) has any legal legislation whatsoever on what AOL does, you nitwit. The Internet is free of FCC regulations, thank god, you thankless moron. People have died to protect our freedoms and you gladly hand them over with your thumb up your butt in fear that someone's kid might see the F-word. It's people like you that make me realize why people all over the world hate Americans.

  14. The fact you would refer to "someone's kid" in such a dismissive way, proves you have "your head" up your butt. Just because you and your boyfriend have no problem with the f-word, doesn't mean heterosexual couples have to have their kids exposed to it. Just like the movie, it's all about your agenda.

  15. Whether someone may be a child of a homosexual couple or a heterosexual one has nothing to do with if they should view the f-word or not. "Surrounded by Idiots" said nothing about the difference between the tolerance of children of different couples to handle swear words, only that there are more important things going on in the world.

    And to "Don Pandanell"- If you're so worried about the f-word being posted, how about you censor your own language. Anyone who freaks out completely about the f-word is bound to be a little disturbed by crap as well.

    I think the posters are meant to be amusing, and not to be taken offensively. The movie was a piece of artistic genius, but I really don't think it's hurting Bert and Ernie's or Gumby and Pokie's feelings to be switched like that. Ease up.

  17. Why is such a morally superior individual such as "Don Pandanell" reading a homosexual blog?

  18. It is puzzling to hear the religous radicals
    beef in trying to keep gays inside a closet.
    But then a movie such as Brokeback Mountain
    is released and these squaky radicals are the first ones in line to see the movie.
    People don't usually pay attention issues such as gays, abortion, and the Alitos until
    they are primed up by Rush Limbaugh and Bill
    Oreily. Not to mention Pat Robertson, he should not be allowed to air outside the United States, he is making us look bad.

  20. it seems the last bastion of innocence is to realise that like the other amimals of this earth we too are simply opportunistic beast.

  21. In response to Don Pandanell's post; if people don't want their children to have access to "this crap", they might think about going to keyword: Parental Controls.
    As for HeyHeyWotISay's comment;"Just because you and your boyfriend have no problem with the f-word, doesn't mean heterosexual couples have to have their kids exposed to it. Just like the movie, it's all about your agenda", get a clue. Our kids are exposed to the "f" word and worse everyday at school. Instead of lumping all of us "heterosexual couples" into the same group, try speaking only for yourself. And what makes Surrounded By Idiots saying "someone's kid" dismissive and you, yourself saying "their kids" NOT dismissive?

  22. Apparently Don Pandanell doesn't understand how the internets work and thought he was still on AOL when he came here.

  23. Heh... I just today made up my own parody of the poster, "Brokeback Muppets" starring -- of course -- Ernie and Bert. If you want to see it, check it out here:

  25. In defense of Don Pandanell, AOL has a link to this website on their homepage referencing "The Towleroad Guide to Brokeback Mountain Poster Parodies". He probably got to this website the same way I did. The same thing crossed by mind when I saw the "Bush" and "Dick" poster parody, which I thought was actually kind of funny, but I wouldn't want my 10 year old to see it! Maybe some of you should stop judging people.
