Please Enjoy "Sneaky Gays" From "Glee"–As BoomTown Sneaks Away for the Week

In the interests of not keeling over from blogging exhaustion–one of my sons actually just called me a raccoon, due to the black circles under my eyes–BoomTown is taking a week off to, well, sleep.

While I am gone, the crack All Things Digital team will keep you up to speed on a wide range of tech news, all of which will be drowned out by the rollout on Saturday of the Apple (AAPL) iPad.

In any case, as counterprogramming, please enjoy this very funny new video from “Glee,” one of many to get fans excited about the return of the television hit on April 13.

It is an event I am looking forward to as much as the iPad–so, maybe I will watch the new episodes on my new tablet to reach a state of glee.

This video features the sublime Jane Lynch, who plays nefarious cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, in one of her local-TV “Sue’s Corner” rants–this time, against non-swishy gays. It’s aptly called: “Sneaky Gays.”

(Full disclosure: Lynch and I are friends, but I’d find her hysterical even if she were my sworn enemy.)

Here’s the video–I”ll be back post-Easter and post-iPad mania on April 5:
