Mayo goes gay

I find it absolutely ridiculous that an ad for mayonnaise that shows two men kissing has caused such a bruhaha that it has been pulled. Nigel Dickie, of Heinz UK, said: "The advertisement, part of a short-run campaign, was intended to be humorous and we apologise to anyone who felt offended." Yeah, sorry you prudes felt offended by two men lip locking. The bigger picture which should cause the most offense is that one of your British businessmen would dare be involved with an obnoxious New Yorker. At least some folks (legislators) have their heads on their shoulders, asking Heinz to reconsider as to not offend the gay population.

Old news, but you can watch the ad here.
