Eat Our Product, Or You'll Be GAY! - Elf M. Sternberg
Eat Our Product, Or You'll Be GAY!
Is it just me, or do the ads for beef jerky lining the freeways of The Puget Sound annoy anyone else as much as they do me? The worst one reads, "Banana Chips may lead to figure skating." Translation: They'll make you gay. Don't be gay. Eat beef jerky instead.

Dammit, I like jerky. I also like guys. ("Don't go there, Jake.") But these ads are enough to turn me off the stuff for a lifetime.

Which I'm sure would please Omaha.

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed

And I like figure skating, both to watch and to do.

I find them very annoying too - there's one of the banana chip ones on the way into Fremont, and it's just ... who exactly was the brilliant mind to put THAT in that location?

Heh, this is why I make my own. Though there may be something about owning a food dehydrator that might suggest a level of pansiness. It's a paradox, I say.

The questions that come to my mind is: Why is being gay considered a bad thing? What's wrong with figure skating?

Packaged beef jerky is nasty, anyway. Homemade is way, way, way better, so boycotting the offensive brand wouldn't be a particular hardship. And yeah, those ads _are_ offensive. Gender stereotyping usually is.

Maybe it's just that the people who take their bananas out for walks and don't pick up after them are more likely to go watch figure skating, so if you follow a trail of banana chips, you'll be more likely to find an ice rink? Following a trail of cow chips doesn't generally take you anywhere interesting, though, so it could just be sour grapes on the beef-jerky industry's part...

Following a trail of cow chips leads to a cow! And those are, if nothing else, tasty. Where as ice rinks are only interesting for the hockey. :-)
