McQuote of the day
In a post wherein he raises a major stink because no media showed up for his sparsely populated anti-McDonald's press conference, Peter LaBarbera says the following about those who've sworn off Big Macs until the fast food giant swears off gay acceptance:
"The people involved in this boycott of McDonald’s are good family people — not vegans, America-hating leftists, or some other fringe group."
A comment to which this writer's immediate reply is:
"Hey, stop talking trash about my readership base, Pete! That's just rude, brotha."
But then, after thinking about it further, I have to wonder why Pete felt a need to single out vegans in particular. Who knows? Perhaps he just prefers to hang with those who suck on sausage and/or are into leather.

White,heterosexual,male,homophobe,christian,carnivore = good
Everyone else = bad

Pete needs a new headshot (wince) That is what you call a Windy City Combover. And if the people doing this boycott are not a fringe group, then what are they? A tassel group? A flounce group? A doily group.

I thought his vegan comment was weird as well - I thought maybe it was his attempt at trying to be sardonic.

I had no idea Jeremy was so dreamy. I also had no idea Double Quarter Pounders with Cheese were so delicious. Okay, yes I did.

You're sweet, JeffRob.

Those vegans are weird. I'm going to boycott them.

Wasn't Daniel, as in Old Testament - lions den Daniel, a vegetarian? These guys don't even know who they are supposed to hate these days!

Obviously our favorite gay pornographer survives on grease, garbage and fat (which is about right, beings he's always leaving the wife and kids behind).
Which means it's very likely he'll be throwing himself into a heart attack within the next decade. Good!

That is the most beautiful pic - you're astounding, Jeremy Hooper.

Scott, in order for him to have a heart attack, he'd need to have a heart first.
I don't think we can expect him to suffer a brain tumor either.
Jeremy is indeed a cutie, and, if I'm not mistaken, spoken for, which is unfortunate for us, but fortunate for his S.O. :)

Oh, Jeremy! That last semtence made me laugh until I cried!
And thanks for sticking up for us veggies. I think. Unfortunately, all I can do to counterboycott is the fruit and walnut salad on the way home from surfing.
Oh, and maybe some fries. :-)

I suppose that Peter would never consider that his press conference might not have been deemed news worthy by the Chicago media establishment.
I have some vegan friends and I have always known they were "good family people". Oh, but then again since they are gay, they must not be good..
In honor of the boycott, I had a fish filet sandwich this week, still lovin'it

He surely had permission from his spouse to put a hot pic like that up. If not, he's in deep do do tonite.

Why would I be in trouble, dave? The spouse knows he has zero competition.
Or is "in deep do do" a euphemism for...oh nevermind.
Posted by: G-A-Y | Jul 18, 2008 7:59:58 AM
Awww - that's sweet.
And, no, I just meant "in deep trouble." :)

To answer an earlier comment about what kind of group they are, I'm guessing they're a pasty group. As in the things that go over a stripper's nipples.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go have a 100% organic, vegan cupcake and enjoy it with a latte while sitting across from my life partner/husband as we pet the dog and admire our Double Income, No Kids status.

What a contrast: The stud and the spud.

Now I've heard it all. Vegans aren't "good family people"? So of course as a lesbian vegetarian atheist I'm three times "not good family people" it seems.
