Oreo Cookies Have Gone Gay!
Yesterday, they posted a big imaginary rainbow cookie with the message "Proudly support love" on their Facebook page.
And the questions arise:
*Are they trying to kill off gays with sugar?
*Are they hoping the conservatives won't be savvy enough to know what signifiers like "pride" and rainbow colors mean?
*Wouldn't it be better if you could actually purchase such a cookie rather the the same old black-and-white ones (though those do promote a wonderful image of racial togetherness)?
And most importantly:
*How can we get everyone to do this, so the world is brightened by images of rainbow-colored Ding Dongs, Little Debbie cakes, Fudgie the Whales, and barbecued spare ribs?
