54-YEAR-OLD plumber Tom Booker has grudgingly complimented the physiques of Gay Pride participants.
The heterosexual father-of-three, who stumbled on television coverage of the event while channel-hopping for some football, was surprised by how big some of those men are.
He said: “I thought they were generally more on the slim side. But some of them are built like boxers.
“Big chests, and big legs too.”
Booker continued to watch footage of shirtless men on carnival floats gyrating to dance music, as his wife prepared the dinner.
“I don’t know what to make of it, all these men dancing with each other, wearing hats and little shorts.
“Look at that blonde one, he’s got thighs like sides of beef. Not at ounce of fat on him though.
“He probably does a mixture of swimming and weights because he’s not massive but he is toned, as I believe they call it.
“I wonder what his name is?”
On hearing his wife approaching, Booker immediately changed the channel and pretended to have been watching Top Gear for the entire time.
