Micky D's Turns Gay

Well, it IS Independence Day, after all.

You NEVER see Ronald McDonald on a date with a woman. It's true. We always thought the outfit was a trifle ... flamboyant.

The American Family Association (AFA) has announced a boycott of McDonald's because some Vice President in Charge of Charbroiling is serving on the Board of Directors of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

So now they have their own Chamber of Commerce? Cool.

The AFA (otherwise known as the Rev. Donald Wildmon of Buttlump, Ala.) "has a long history of silly, offensive boycotts against, among others, Wal-Mart (for selling Brokeback Mountain DVDs), Ford Motor Company (for advertising in gay-friendly publications), and the American Girl dolls (because the maker contributed to a youth organization that was pro-choice and supported the acceptance of lesbians). In 2005, it called off its unsuccessful nine-year boycott of Disney (for its 'embrace of the homosexual lifestyle')."

Americans can be SO nuts.

And simultaneously so immune to the whims of Rev. Wildmon and the AFA.
