Though my brilliant colleague Billy Heller writes most of the headlines in the Post’s Pulse section, including yesterday’s “Grinner Takes All,” I’m slightly embarrassed to admit I wrote the hed for tomorrow’s review of the supergay new musical “Mamma Mia”: ABBA-DABBA-DOO!

Seriously, this movie is a quantum leap forward in gay technology. It is to previous incarnations of gay what the Apollo space program was to the bicycle. Lou Lumenick predicts it will do $30 million this weekend, though there is a slightly more interesting movie opening against it. Is this a much gayer country than I previously suspected? Is “Mamma Mia” the gay Batman? The Flighty Knight?

Wouldn’t that be a violation of the Wertham Act of 1954?
