I’m sorry, but I had to look about four times at this Daily News pic of “The Dance of the Giglio,” the annual Italian tradition of carrying a giant thing through the streets and eating fried foods (in honor of a 5th-century saint). Because this is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen. Like, Pride Preview gay. (Nothing wrong with that, just, you know, mischievous photo editor, etc.).

  • Have you been to the Giglio festival? The Giglio itself is pretty dang phallic. I suspect it goes back to some pre-Christian fertility celebration in Italy.
