It appears that Hugh Jackman’s darkly stained pants saturated with his own urine will not pay a visit to Mexican fans this week. He has canceled the Mexico wet-leg of his international peemotional tour for Wolverine: Origins due to the swine flu scare. Reports the AP:

MEXICO CITY – Even the mighty Wolverine is taking precautions when it comes to swine flu.

Film distributor 20th Century Fox says it has canceled actor Hugh Jackman’s scheduled appearance in Mexico City to promote “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

Although the swine flu scare definitely seems like overblown media-fueled panic at this point, I’m glad to see that in this one instance, Hugh Jackman did not let the actor in him take over. Better safe than sorry. Wet, and piss-scented, and safe. (Thanks for a similar tip, Gonzalo. Image via HuffingtonPost.)

    Dead horse indeed. It’s starting to feel like 7th grade. Are you going to make fun of the same kid for something that happened once for eternity? Considering that he acknowledged and explained it (and I didn’t have to see it in person), move on and wait for his next leak (film industry double entendre zing)

  4. Please, Gabe is breathing new life into that horse. I haven’t LOL’d so much since the original pants-peeing coverage.

    “He has canceled the Mexico wet-leg of his international peemotional tour” = GENIUS.

  5. This “dead horse” as many of you love to call this beautiful running joke just so happens to have made me spit beer all over my computer screen.

    Thank you Hugh,
    and subsequently, Gabe.

  6. Hugh Jackman pee his pants jokes fo’ LIFE.

  7. Doesn’t anyone remember Mr. Show? A simple joke, repeated often enough, gets old. It then eventually gets funnier again, then absolutely hysterical. We are getting close to the hysterical. Pee jokes forever!

  8. Yeah this comic strain just separates the crowd into two groups. The laughs and the laugh nots.

    For a”straight” man, Gabe does seem kind of obsessed with Hugh’s pee pants. Pee pants. This is the kind of sophisticated thought provoking humor that oh shit I don’t know how to finish this sentence now. So there.

  10. Is this going to be a civil war? Do we all have to pick sides now? Is this how videogum dies? To the gentle sound of urine streaming on cotton?

    Leave Gabe alone guys, it’s obvious he’s got some old issues to work through.
    It’ll pass in time.
