I Couldn't Make This Up Dep't

"A restaurant that refused to seat a blind patron because its workers allegedly believed his seeing-eye dog was gay has been fined $1,500 by the Australian Equal Opportunity Tribunal."

Seriously.

that is funny
a gay seeing eye dog? so was there another gay dog also at this restaurant and the 2 dogs were being too friendly?
I guess the employees feel pretty silly now

Wow. It's funny, but come on already! Oh,my.

Oh good heavens! Evidently, whoever does the seating knows nothing about dogs...

I have been trying to make sense of that since I first read the article.

If said with a heavy Aussie accent, "guide dog" can sound sort of like "gay dog." Imagine your stereotypical Australian (as imagined by Americans) saying, "It's me guide dog, mate!"
