Attn all struggling businesses: You might wanna piss off the AFA

by Jeremy Hooper

200808051243-1Oh, so as we've been saying:

McDonald's July same-store sales rise 8 percent [AP via AOL Money]

So yea, you all keep up the good, effective, society-shaping work, AFA!! That bottom line seems to be utterly collapsing under the weight of your McMuffin-cott! [::eye roll, head shake, caramel iced coffee sip::]

**SEE ALSO: Here's our complete McDonald's boycott roundup

**Oh and FYI: The stock is WAAAAAY up today!

Your thoughts

Maybe some of these struggling record stores around the country can take a cue from this.

Maybe a section of "out" GLBT artists would be enough to make some "christian"/AFA nut blast through the roof - and go screaming for a music boycott.

Hey, Best Buy (and pretty much every major music store) has a section for religious music, so why not?

I truly am one sick, sadistic bastard, (and I am almost ashamed to say this) BUT the first thing that popped into my mind is that the airlines should piss off the fundies.

Because if this is any indication, they can improve their sales and improve the traveling experience of their other passengers. All while simultaneously eliminating all of those over 250 pound fat asses from the seats, their fuel costs will decline as well! Win, win, win, win!!!!

hmph.
Don't kid yourselves. Sales are up because the economy is in the shitter and MCDS is cheap.
Although, I am happy to see their numbers up.

Nobody's kidding themselves, banshii. The fact is that they are having no impact. Whatever the reason, that's pretty funny.

The AFA... sad little people, school yard bullies, religious automatons, fable spouting,


Seems to the bottom line for the AFA and other religious organizations are founded on guilt, shame and fables.
