New for '06: The Ford Paradox GT

by Jeremy Hooper

Despite the fact that the American Family Association and other "pro-family" groups are boycotting Ford Motor Company primarily because of its gay-friendly advertising (which they consider unwholesome and anti-family), the Parents Television Council has chosen Ford as one of their Top Ten BEST sponsors of "wholesome, family-oriented television shows."

Ford executives are rumored to be: "happy about the award, unless, of course, that makes gays angry. If that's the case, then we want to assure gays that we're standing strong with their community. Oh, but not if that's gonna lead to a heightened conservative boycott. If that's the case then we're...oh f**k it all! We're going to go sell tomatoes on the side of the road."
