An anti-McDonald's website (yes, another one) has sprouted up in response to this ad, which touts the company's commitment to the gay and lesbian community. According to the proprietors of BoycottMcDonalds.com, they are not against McDonald's irresponsible and highly questionable definition of food, which they serve freely at thousands of locations worldwide, oh no, they love the food. They just hate McDonald's politics. "It is about McDonald's, as a corporation, refusing to remain neutral in the culture wars. McDonald's has chosen not to remain neutral but to give the full weight of their corporation to promoting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage."

Seriously. Who supports Stonewall riot victims anyway? That is so not what Jesus would do. He might stone Stonewall victims, but never support them. Shame on you, Mickey D's. Shame on your tolerance and compassion.

The best part of the site -- without a doubt -- is the comments section, a finely honed hodgepodge of stupidity, so utterly devoid of rational thought that I would be remiss not to share some of the gems. These comments are 100% real and unedited, written by real people... with really low IQs:

"because McDonald's had taken a stand to support the activist gay agenda that is destroying the core of family values in the U.S. we will take a stand to support McDonald's competitors such as In-n-Out and Chick fil-A."

“I have 5 days a week my house filled with children of various age and many days it’s McDonalds for dinner due to time restraints. NOT ANY MORE. I will not spend my hard earnd money to support a group of people that is trappling my beliefs and leading our futur generations in to a lifestyle that will kill them. I will not come and spend a dime there nor will I let any of my friends or aquaintends do so. what ever I can to stop this support of nglcc I will do. Children are too precious to be perverted like that. one of many who still have a sense of morality”


Oh, and the list goes on... And on and on. Practically forever. This is totally the last time I'm taking political cues from a clown and a guy named "Hamburglar."

Master Of Your Domain

You may have heard the news: "Web regulators recently voted to allow the creation of thousands of new domain names, from .paris to .Pepsi, in one of the biggest shake-ups in Internet history."

In other words, the flood gates are wide open.

I, for one, don't see the point. Plenty of companies have already crossed the line, even in the age of traditional domain name suffixes. Why encourage them? Take penisland.net, the web's premiere destination for custom pens. Or therapistfinder.com, which sounds like Facebook for rapists, but is really a directory of licensed psychologists.

The point is... we don't need companies, like Coca-Cola, for instance, buying up customized domain names. Like www.drink.coke. It's too hard to remember. And more importantly, too easy to fuck up. Take RIM (Research in Motion), a mobile communications company, who, in an effort to better attract prospective employees, uses the customized domain: www.rim.jobs!

Now I don't mean to say opening up domain names is a shitty policy -- although, in the case of "rim.jobs" it most certainly is -- I'm just saying, it could get dicey. It will get dicey. And before you know it, the Internet will be overrun with lewd and lascivious smut.

SMUT. On the INTERNET. Imagine that!?
