AFA drags tired Ford saga back into light

by Jeremy Hooper

   After months of bitching and moaning about the company's gay-friendliness, the American Family Association and 18 other "pro-family" organizations are putting their desire to hurt the company's ability to make money where their homosexuality-disliking mouth is, announcing today that they're initiating a full-blown boycott of the Ford Motor Company. No word on why the AFA is acting now, though we do have a theory: They absolutely detest those cheesy little "American Idol" Ford commercials that the producers make the final twelve warble their way through ever Wednesday night. After years of seeing everyone from Carmen Rasmussen to Scott Savol shake it to some 80's pop while singing into a hairbrush, they couldn't bear the thought of sitting through another season. Knowing that antipathy for the 'mos is their bread and butter, they announce a gay-related Fordcott now. This Wednesday, when they close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears, and say "la,la,la,la,la,la,la" during the Ford Focus spot, their families won't think them foolhardy, just anti-gay.

We. are. geniuses.

No word if those "pro-family" folks who currently drive Fords will today jump out of their moving vehicles and run for the hills in fear of catching its all-wheel gay, rack-and-pinion 'moness; we'll keep you posted should we see an Escort barreling down the street and...oh, who are we kidding, we live in Manhattan. Escorts (at least the capitalized version) and gay antipathy are both in short supply.
