LESBIANS SELECTED FOR FIRST KISS!
It didn't hurt that they were kinda hot.
In a move touted by the LGBT community as the "Kiss Heard Round the World," a same-sex couple became the first in the Navy to get to have the celebrated first kiss upon their return to port. (At first, The Lifeguard thought he was seeing Rosie O'Donnell's Family Cruise, not the return of a US warship. But, the women appeared to be attractive, so he immediately knew it wasn't Rosie.)
Sailors on board ship applauded, mainly because they got to see something they'd otherwise have to pay $9.99 to see. The ship's captain, David Bauer, said, "It's going to happen and the crew is going to enjoy it." (Yeah, because they don't have to pay $9.99 to see it.)
Of course, had the drawing yielded a couple of big, hairy guys (or big, hairy women), the LA Times might not have made such a big deal of the picture.
