Where's Wanda?

Everyone loves an excuse to whip up a musical, but in the case of those affected by Prop 8, the urge comes naturally. After all, who loves musicals more than gay people and the people who love them? That's right bitches, no one.

Brought to you by the folks at Will Ferrell's Funny or Die, a comedy website that's often not all that funny (sorry, I'm a critic in all things), but boasts an impressive roster of A-list starpower, here's Prop 8: The Musical, featuring Jack Black, John C. Reilly and a whole lot of their friends whose names and faces you probably know. Who's missing? Curiously, it's the very funny Wanda Sykes--click here for her comedy routine on the subject--who was recently moved enough by the debate to come out as gay... And married to her partner. Hopefully she'll show up for round two.

Anyway, I don't know how much good it can do at this point, but hey, at least they're still keeping it on the radar. Or, um, gaydar. 

Bring it on home, Neil Patrick Harris.
