So, if you have a sense of humor, take a look through the top five gay-themed skits from Mad TV.
5. Stevie Comes Out
This is an all too familiar story. You come out to your friends, only to find they already knew and weren't surprised. While most would be relieved, that's not the case with Stevie.
4. Gay Mob Boss
The lesson to be learned from this skit? Never put people in a box based on stereotypical characteristics. There could be a lot more beneath the surface.
3. My Gay Dad...
I never had the luxury of knowing someone in high school with such a dad. Needless to say, if this were a real sitcom, I would totally watch!
2. Miss Swan Goes To A Gay Bar
Miss Swan unknowingly walks into a gay bar. She doesn't find what she's looking for, but soon finds herself right at home. This one is a classic. Keep an eye out for Chad Michaels from "RuPaul's Drag Race."
1. A Football Thing
Scoring (in sports, that is) sure gets these "straight" guys excited. Watch the fun (and awkwardness) ensue.
