    No, it's not in South Park, Colorado, but in Adelaide, Australia:

    Gay dogs not welcome, diner told | Adelaide Now

    Note that it is possible for the phrase "guide dog" as pronounced in a refined sort of Australian accent to sound very like the phrase "gay dog" as pronounced in a broad Australian accent only by the duration of the [d] in the middle--in IPA notation, [gaɪd dɒg] vs. [gaɪ dɒg].

    I remember when I was a kid, we had four female dobermans. The older female would occasionally mount the other females and start pumping.

    True story.

    Perhaps she was a Native American two-spirit dog

    Between their accents and the poor quality of the recording, I failed to understand most of what the man was saying, but I did get that he confused "agents" and "Asians."

    I remember a visit to Australia that I and other members of my family made when I was a child during which electrical power was sometimes unavailable. When we made inquiry, we were told, as it seemed to us, that it was due to a "pear strike." We eventually figured out that what we heard as "pear" was "power."

    I was going to use as a thread title Cartman's line "That dog is a gay homosexual!", which I think is my favorite line of the episode, but I thought fewer people would recognize it.

    It sounds to me as though the 'we thought it was a gay dog, not a guide dog' is just an excuse. It's usually pretty obvious when guide dogs are working, plus the article says that the couple gave the restaurant staff a guide dogs facts card. I doubt there was any misunderstanding at that point.


    I'm Australian, and I thought he was saying 'Asians'!

    The restauranteurs were named Hong Hoa Thi To and Anh Hoang Le: I doubt that their ear for English is going to be the best. Also, why would anyone offer that as an excuse for refusing service to a blind person?

    It's not that I don't think someone could get the words mixed up. I think getting the two mixed up could be quite easy. But when a guide dog is right in front of them (which it must have been if the couple gave them a facts card), it's really very obvious that it's a guide dog. Plus they got that fact card.

    I think they just didn't want to let the dog in their restaurant (guide dog or not) and came up with a 'we don't understand English' excuse to try to cover their ass.
