    Logic, Sense and Facts aside…
    When are they bottling this magic water and Where can I get it?

  2. Reducing testosterone doesn’t make men gay it just reduces their sex drive. Equally increasing the testosterone of gay men doesn’t make them straight, they are still gay but their sex drive goes up (along with sebaceous secretions and violent tendencies). Sexual performance is unaltered!

  3. you think he’d be more bothered about the bit at the end of article than it turning people gay really…
    “strontium can cause bone cancer, anaemia and cardiovascular problems.”

      thats not even correct, natural strontium is not dangerous at all, the artificial isotope that can be created however is dangerous and has been linked with those problems, regardless i think our mayor friend is a bit silly heh on that note though why the heho would they not be filtering the strontium out if they’re concerned, although the kind of which they’re referring is harmless at worst, beneficial at best

      1. Rubber Ducky 23 Nov 2011, 12:11pm

        oopsie, forgot to say, the dangerous isotope is Strontium-89

        1. Rubber Ducky 23 Nov 2011, 12:12pm

          ahhh bugger no its not.. its 90.. not 89 lol they use 89 to treat bone cancer

    We have to feel sorry for these uneducated ignorant tribes-people, they know no different, poor souls.

    1. Offensive much!

  5. OMG I can not stop laughing, can we send some to Keith roflmao

    1. Jock S. Trap 15 Dec 2011, 9:11am

      They probably got it from Keith (cough)

  6. So the UK is not the only country where local government attracts mediocre loonies and bigots.

  7. Shouldn’t there be a recall procedure when you discover that your mayor is an idiot…?

    1. Not if you knew he was one before you elected him. Consider Boris, for example…

  8. The metal, he claimed, reduces male hormones and could cause an increase in homosexuality among the population.

    Okay, so he doesn’t know anything about science… Reducing male hormones MIGHT cut down on rapes, child molestation, and spousal abuse… Wait a second. Maybe we DO need to spike their drinking water with selenium!

  9. Have they been watching the film “It’s in the water” and using as their bible?

  10. I see.

    Pinknews is now the Daily Mail of nonsense stories.

    A Mayor of a small town in Peru is insane and stated a completely illogical non-scientific bilge.

    Pray tell, why this non-story came into existence.

    Padding out the never ending advertising revenue doubt.

    Right now I have “THE HOME OF GREAT CULTURE” HACKNEY 2012″

    advert whilst I type this .

    Who pays for you,,,,

    Hope it pays well you hack journalists

  11. GingerlyColors 23 Nov 2011, 6:51am

    Should bottle it and export it! We can do with a few more gays in the world!

  12. What? Another crazy fool, jumping to conclusions.

    Next there will be the claim that eating too much pasta/shrimp/wheat/barley etc etc etc etc will ‘turn people gay.’

    What a load of cobblers awls.

  13. HA HA HA HA I never seen anything as dumb or backward in all my life!!!!!

  14. Nutjobsareeverywhere 23 Nov 2011, 1:57pm

    And the Nutjob of the week award goes too !!! Omg

  15. “The water comes from Tabalosos, a town which a Lima-based television station famously said in 2000 was inhabited by 14,000 exclusively-gay men.”

    mmmm…..

    1. mmm … Me thinks Tabalosos could become the new Mykonos

  16. another man mayor .
    be happy be gay

  17. Isn’t this similar to the plot of the movie “Dr Strangelove”?
    A paranoid US general gets it into his head (due to his inability to perform in the bedroom) that the Soviets have poisoned the US water supply with flouride as a conspiracy to undermine the verility of american males everywhere.
    He declares martial law on his airbase and sends out a squadron of B52 bombers to attack the USSR.
    That movie scenario culminates in the end of the world.
    I guess this mayor had better not drink any water then!

  18. Either this mayor is not the brightess or this is ploy to increase tourism. I want to go there now. 14000 gay men in a small town!

    1. jamestoronto 23 Nov 2011, 3:13pm

      The possibilities are endless, especially if they start exporting it.

  19. soapbubblequeen 23 Nov 2011, 3:23pm

    WTF?! Perhaps they could bottle it and call it ‘Buttocks Spring’ or something.

  20. Spanner1960 23 Nov 2011, 4:59pm

    Don’t knock it, it’s true!

    I’ve seen it in my local town, straight yobs go into Wetherspoons pubs all night drinking lager and alcopops and then pile out at 11 ‘o’ clock with their arms round each other, shouting “Your’e my bestest mate” and “I really, really love you.”

    Truth is stranger than fiction.

    1. LOL! Now if only we could get lager into the water supply…

    2. de Villiers 23 Nov 2011, 5:48pm

      Very good!

    3. Your’e? Tsk tsk, O orthographically perfect One.

  21. Do provincial Peruvians have the equivalent of April Fool on St Cecilia’s Day or something?

  22. “I ain’t drinking their water, it’ll make me gay”… sounds like the old primary school class rivalries. If only he wasn’t a real person and in charge of an actual town.

  23. MyLyricalDreams 25 Nov 2011, 10:47am

    LMAO!

    I adore this story, sounds like a little boy – “That water will make us all gay!”

    Or possibly he’s already preparing excuses for when he ‘suddenly’ becomes homosexual…? Haha

    Maybe we should bottling this magical dizzy water, you’d certainly have some very interesting nights out!

  24. Jock S. Trap 15 Dec 2011, 9:10am

    Er… seriously? What planet do these bigots come from. How stupid can they get?…

  25. David chukwuka 27 Dec 2011, 11:15am

    Goodness me!! I can’t stop laughing at this soon to be out gay mayor…. Probably we need it bottled down to Africa….
