By now you have all probably heard that Governor Christie called openly gay Assemblyman Reed Gusciora “numb nuts” during a Statehouse news conference.  Instead of harping over whether or not Christie went to far in using the phrase “numb nuts”, Dennis and Judi wanted to come up with other less offensive phrases that could have been used.

This all is over the gay marriage feud going on in New Jersey.  Christie’s “numb nuts” comment came after Assemblyman Gusciora said Christie would have found allies in late Alabama Gov. George Wallace and late Georgia Gov. Lester Maddox, both segregationists.

Instead of arguing over whether or not Christie’s “numb nuts” comment was offensive, we thought we could  help Governor Christie come up with other less offensive names. Below are some of the terms we came up with that maybe Governor Christie should have used instead of “numb nuts”.
