Construction Worker Accidentally Admits to Having Seen "Brokeback Mountain"

SCHAUMBURG, ILL., Feb. 9, 2009 – This past Friday, construction worker Brennan O’Malley accidentally admitted to his coworkers that he has seen the film Brokeback Mountain—director Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning tale of forbidden cowboy man-love. The shocking revelation came during the crew’s lunch break as they discussed Heath Ledger’s impressively unsettling turn as the Joker in 2008’s The Dark Night. O’Malley submitted to his coworkers that while Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker was—in fact—Oscar-worthy, it was "nothing compared to the depth and emotional subtlety he showed as Ennis Del Mar in Brokeback Mountain."

“I always knew there was something off about O’Malley,” said coworker Nick Fleming. “I mean, us guys pack our lunch pails every day and this kid drives off for 40 minutes looking for the nearest Cosi… or Panera Bread."

According to O'Malley: "I mean, yeah, I've flipped past it on HBO a couple times... and once it was on in the background at my friend Antoine's house, but I haven't seen it start to finish. I've mostly just heard about how good Ledger was in it."

In the wake of the admission, O’Malley’s coworkers have noticed that he seems to be going out of his way to point out even the most vaguely impressive physical features of women passing by the site.
