Will the lame “Brokeback Mountain” jokes ever cease?

Via Us Magazine:

Jake Gyllenhaal was the brunt of a gay-themed joke at the beginning of Sunday’s “Academy of Country Music Awards” in Las Vegas.

As co-hosts Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire delivered their opening monologue, the night’s big honoree Taylor Swift came up.

“Don’t make jokes about Taylor Swift,” McEntire warned. “If you make her mad, she’ll write a song about you. She writes songs about guys who break up with her.”

(It’s true. Swift, 21, has reportedly penned ditties about Joe Jonas, John Mayer and others.)

“Which I don’t understand in the first place. She’s beautiful, she’s talented, she’s sweet. What in the world was Jake Gyllenhaal thinking anyway?

Shelton’s retort: “Wait a minute, he was in Brokeback Mountain.”

The country-music crowd laughed and cheered wildly at the joke, a reference to Gyllenhaal’s Oscar-nominated performance as a gay cowboy opposite Heath Ledger.

LOL… not!
