While the idea of eating food in bed might make people angry for cleanliness reasons (such a mess!), others are ticked off at Chobani for its latest ad featuring two women in bed together, one of whom happens to be eating yogurt. The ever-vigilant folks at One Million Moms have a problem not only with lesbians eating yogurt in bed, but with the fact that a same-sex couple would flaunt their wedding rings while doing so. In response, Chobani says it’s proud that all kinds of people like to eat its yogurt, in bed and married or otherwise.
Next to Saltines, graham crackers — which were actually created with the intention of curbing one’s animal urges — are about as innocuous a food item as you could imagine. So it’s a bit odd that Honey Maid graham crackers are in the middle of a social media to-do over an ad featured interracial families and same-sex parents and state in no uncertain terms that “This is wholesome.” Some folks weren’t too happy about this ad and unleashed a torrent of nastiness at the company (which, again, makes graham crackers). Today, Honey Maid unveiled a new video showing these detractors what they can do with their complaints. [More]

He’s going to get ants all up in his business if he doesn’t put that food away before taking a nap. [More]
Far from backing away from the kind of same-sex imagery groups like One Million Moms have protested against in the past, JCPenney is embracing gay couples once again with a new ad featuring two dads and their kids for Father’s Day.
Back when Ben & Jerry’s announced its new Schweddy Balls flavor of ice cream, you might have guessed that some stores might balk at selling the product. And if so, then your prediction was spot-on.
The inaccurately named American Family Association — those not-at-all-absolutely-insane people who boycott stores for not associating Jesus’ birthday with deep discounts — has a special “project” called One Million Moms, which is apparently the number of mothers the AFA would want us to believe are truly upset about Ben & Jerry’s Schweddy Balls flavor of ice cream.
