Syntactic ambiguity alert, take two

Skimming through the latest Progressive Bloggers posts this morning, I stumbled upon a post at Slap Upside the Head entitled "Why I Support Making Commissioners Wed Gays."

I have to say that I agree with Mr. Slap. In fact, given that it has been legal for commissioners to be married to gay people for going on two years now, it is appalling that there exist commissioners who are still single, or...gasp...are even still married to straight people.

What? Why are you looking at me like that?

Yes, I read that post also . . .

Love your take on it, and I'm not "looking at you like that" . . . . :)

For me, this isn't ambiguous—I just don't have the sense of wed needed for the intended reading. So your reading is the only one I get.

I thought the same thing when I read that. :)
