NOM's hilariously ineffective General Mills boycott has been total crock; enter Crocker

by Jeremy Hooper

If you follow "culture war" politics, you probably know that the National Organization For Marriage has had a boycott going against the General Mills corporation for more than a year now. If you shop in the American marketplace, you probably know that NOM's efforts have been a total bust.

But now, General Mills' most pastry-happy star, Betty Crocker, is coming out in support of Minnesota gay couples who will soon marry. And while most of us are beyond touched by awesome pics like this….

For now, Betty Botter seems to be safe. However, if she buys some boy/boy butter and puts it in her batter, NOM is likely to become bitter.

No word on what NOM will do to Ms. Crocker. However, I hear it will have something to do with hiding her yeast packets. The scoundrels.
