Notre Dame Homophobic Cartoon: 2010, not 1981

“What’s the easiest way to turn a fruit into a vegetable?"
“No idea.”
“A baseball bat.”

This was an actual cartoon caption in Notre Dame University's student newspaper.

Something just like this actually did happen when I was about to graduate high school in 1981.

The class president and some of his buddies picked up a guy and beat him up because they thought he was gay.

The used a baseball bat. He was hospitalized. I don't know what happened to him afterwards.

There is no humor to be found in this cartoon.
