When I was a lad in the early 90’s, my friends and I were in perpetual fear of turning gay. We’d been told by many authority figures that one could somehow wake up and realize that they were gay, and so an elaborate system of early warning signs was passed into junior high dogma. For example, if you preferred to wear your watch on your right wrist, you were probably turning gay. The way you crossed your legs was also a signal of imminent homo-eroticism: the proper method was to balance one ankle on the opposing knee, giving proper breathing room to your elephantine testicular sack.
I did my best to avoid all of these telltale signs, until one day, in the school cafeteria, I dunked my Oreo into a glass of milk and my friend’s face went white. “Dude,” he whispered, looking over his shoulder frantically, “That’s gay.” That was the day that the rainbow entered my soul and I finally became tolerant of other sexual orientations. Because I’d rather be queer than eat my Oreo dry.
With that delightful personal anecdote out of the way, Kraft have announced the oblong Oreo cookie, made for easy dunking! Honestly, this is probably the best idea Oreo’s had in a long time — we weren’t big fans of their fluorescent orange Oreo campaigns. But an Oreo that can be easily shoved to sop up the last dregs of milk in a narrow glass… I’ve been waiting my whole life for this. Plus, it’s a edible symbol of your own enlightened sexual tolerance!
