Mayor of Michigan Town Bans All Straight People

Lol yeah that headline is clickbait. It's technically true but straight people aren't actually banned. Anymore, at least. But it is a hilarious story and don't we need some of that?

Actually, this headline makes it even funnier:

'Mayor' of Hell bans all straight people from entering Michigan town

In a series of comical Tweets sent out on Wednesday, Aug. 30, comedian and internet personality Elijah Daniel explained that he was named the legal mayor of Hell, Michigan when he was presented a proclamation signed by former "mayor" Odum Plenty.

What happened is that the small unincorporated territory that is for some reason called Hell, Michigan has leaned into the name and created an attraction wherein you can be named mayor of Hell for a day for $100-110. So Daniel jumped on it and used his temporary power to ban all the straights.

"Growing up, I was always told that homosexuals would go to Hell," the notice reads. "Now, the heterosexuals are trying to take this from us, too."


Then, this national hero used the opportunity to make fun of Trump.

He was apparently impeached in under an hour, but he took it well.

These are the feel-good stories America needs right now. Thank you, Former Mayor Elijah Daniel.

Now THIS is comedy.
