Why you shouldn't boycott Chick-fil-A or support Chick-fil-A based on the CEO's gay marriage views:
Recently the CEO of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, gave a radio interview in which he expressed his strong opposition to gay marriage. People reacted with proper restraint out of a reasonable perspective and realized that it's only one man's personal opinion. They realized that there was no need to blow it out of proportion or really even care because it in no way affected their lives whatsoever. Wait, no they didn't. People did what they always do whenever anyone says anything controversial. They put on their most uncomfortable panties and had a giant period. Unlike these people, my panties are nice and loose.
Mayors and politicians threatened to kick the restaurant chain out of their towns. People on both sides of the issue planned protests and support rallies. Many of the people who planned boycotts also made sure everyone knew they were making the great sacrifice of not going to a fast food restaurant.
I support gay marriage (as I wrote here) but I will not boycott Chick-fil-A just because their CEO disagrees with me. However, I will boycott Chick-fil-A because I don't like pickles on my sandwiches. Disgusting.
Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays for religious reasons. So, why would anyone be surprised that they might have a CEO with a strong religious opinion?
So because a CEO of a company expresses an opinion that fits his particular faith, and does so without firing gay people or instituting a policy to not serve gay people piping-hot, heterosexual, chicken sandwiches, people want to boycott the whole company?
Well, who do you think a boycott is going to really hurt?
Normally when a commercial comes on tv, I quickly change the channel. I don't need to be bombarded with ads telling me what to buy and what to do! I just want to watch my program and enjoy a delicious Arby's beef 'n cheddar sandwich. But the other day when the commercials began, I couldn't find my well made Samsung remote control and was forced to watch one of the most annoying commercials ever. Even drinking an ice cold Pepsi didn't help with my aggravation.
The commercial is for McDonald's oatmeal. Watch this b.s.:
First of all, mind your own freakin business old lady! If this happened in real life there would be punches thrown.
Second of all, why are you sitting so close! I've never been in a fast food restaurant that was so full of people that strangers had to sit that close to each other. Lies!
Third of all, is it really that shocking that people put things in oatmeal? It's only been happening for like 15 years you old idiot. Learn about oatmeal and stop bothering young people!
"What's all that la de da?" It's robots. No, it's fruit! You've seen fruit before, you ass!
America ... this commercial is everything wrong with all of us.
Burger King is better.
Some friends of mine from a comedy team called "We're Still Friends," put this together. They've been heavily featured on "FunnyOrDie.com" and "To Catch A Predator." It's a talented group, and they made a video about hot dogs. Since you probably love hot dogs more than your own children, I think this is right up your alley. They describe it as a "musical ode to that most Los Angeles figure of the L.A. nightlife: the Hot Dog Lady." "She feeds them when they're famished, and helps hold off that hangover."
Check it out and pass it along to all of your horrible, horrible friends.
Do you like delicious succulent Big Macs and flame broiled tasty whoppers? Of course you do. But have you ever noticed that they never really look as good as the advertisements? It's almost as though the fast food companies are trying to make their product more appealing so people will buy it. That's just a crazy theory of mine.
Here are some of the best examples of advertising vs. reality. To be honest, you could put this crap in a blender and i'd eat it like it was my job.
Girl Scouts, those innocent little sash-wearing sugar-peddlers are expanding their business just as America is expanding their waist lines. (damn thin mints) You can now purchase Girl Scout Cookie flavored lip balms.
According to the internet, you can soon lick your soft moist lips and taste the flavors of Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, and Samoas (yuck, worst one.)
I think this is great news. I often have chapped lips and usually have cookie crumbs all over my mouth anyway. So this new product will really fit my lifestyle.
No really. Seriously, this happened. And ... I think it was justified.
According to the reports from the internet, a man phoned in complaints that his delicious Chalupa was less delicious than normal. The reason? Too little "meat."
This is what a Taco Bell, Chalupa looks like:
No, i'm just kidding. This is what a Taco Bell Chalupa looks like:
But apparently one unhappy Taco Bell customer wasn't satisfied with the amount of horsemeat in his chalupa. (it's not really horse meat, horse meat is actually very healthy) So after making a phone complaint, he did the only thing a normal human being would do. He threw a Molotov cocktail into the drive-thru window. And we're frisking 4 year olds and old ladies at airports.
