Neil Tennant walks into an electronics shop and says "someone stole some of my keyboard equipment. Got any leads?"
A shy man in sunglasses says "Go and report it to the police and then ask them in a couple of days"

And so the career of one of the great comedy duos of all time commenced.

In the days before Grindr, guys hooked up in electronic stores? Crazy times.

Cruised, I guess, not hooked up! That'd be wild even for ths 80s.

I always thought this story sounded ridiculous but seeing how many times they've told it over the last 30+ years without any details changed it must be true. I'm happy that weird ass encounter happened.

How long has the story about Santa climbing down the chimney been told by parents to kids? For over a century. Both stories on a par.

I am no expert on this subject, but I would assume that it is possible for gay men to be friends or engage in a working relationship without having sex...
"Unprofessional? Us? Sir. Might I with due respect remind you that Mister Vandemar and myself burned down the City of Troy? We brought the Black Plague to Flanders. We have assassinated a dozen kings, five popes, half a hundred heroes and two accredited gods. Our last commission before this was the torturing to death of an entire monastery in sixteenth century Tuscany. We are utterly professional." - Mr Croup

Obviously it is. I'm sure ArtHist is just being facetious.
