Buoy Toy

So if you've been reading about the spreading scandal of Rep. Duke Cunningham, you may have hard that the boat he lives on, raided by federal agents last week, is called “Duke-Stir.” According to Roll Call, "the yacht used to be called “Bouy Toy,” so named by its former owners, a gay couple, according to sources at the Capitol Yacht Club."

"Apparently, the fellas down at the marina kind of razzed ol’ Duke, a former “top gun” fighter pilot, about the gay-themed name. And apparently, Cunningham couldn’t take it." So he changed it.
