#42 Shacking Up (The Fine Art of Living in Sin)

Q: What does a lesbian bring to a first date?
A: A U-Haul van!


Ever head this joke and thought, What's that all about...why is it funny? Or  do you think that the lesbian U-Haul stereotype is so you, or total crap? 


Tune into this Friday Night Lip Service right now to hear Yen and Gem unravel this queer women stereotype (and talk a little bit too much about their own relationship). (Really, it's not cute anymore.)
