Anderson Cooper Has a Big Brass Pole

Overlord Nick Denton was so tickled to learn that CNN anchor and well-known gay guy Anderson Cooper's buying an old Greenwich Village firehouse that he left the info in comments back in October. Now the New York Post knows, too.

And we're disappointed at your lack of dick jokes, New York Post! Sure the "brass poles" detail makes the lede, but was this whole real estate story just an excuse to make some more winking references to the romantic getaway Cooper took with his "close pal," gay bar owner and long-time boyfriend Benjamin Maisani? Go ahead everyone, get the puns out of your system.

Also, the firehouse sounds like a pretty cool place to live. Congrats, Anderson.
