Things are getting way out of control. First there was that stupid Boston Bomb scare, now we have this Snickers gay scare TM . Just read below...
((NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- After a number of groups objected, Masterfoods USA, the maker of Snickers candy bars, has pulled the plug on a controversial Super Bowl commercial that showed two men accidentally kissing.
The 30-second commercial featured two mechanics who end up sharing both a Snickers bar and an inadvertent kiss, and then react by pulling out a clump of chest hair to "do something manly." ))
Have we gotten so wussy that people can't take a joke? Now, I have attacked the Right Wing people for their crazy ideas, now it's time to take aim at the Extreme Left. This ad in no way promotes violence against gays, that includes the outtakes that has liberal bloggers all up in arms. If anything, it shows the homophobic nature of straight men, and how stupid they react. Has GLADD gotten so uptight that they can't even take a F'ing joke? (Not to be confused with the trash bag company Glad, or the Air Freshener Glade.) I'm all for gay rights, but this controversy is just stupid.
Snickers also gets the middle finger for removing the ads from their web site. Like Cartoon Network, they grew chicken shit and released a statement.
(("We know that humor is highly subjective and understand that some people may have found the ad offensive. Clearly that was not our intent," Masterfoods said in a statement. "As with all of our Snickers advertising, our goal was to capture the attention of our core Snickers consumer." ))
First off, their core consumers? Who even eats Snickers anymore?
Here's the other reason why people are all up in arms about the ads.
The actual ads

Get over it, the ads aren't even that funny or dangerous. I blame it on the Mooninites.
