    Re: MR. T

    That's offensive to gay people?

    (I take it, all gays are speed walkers - and the only ones who speed walk?)

    Did anyone ask any gays, or is this yet another case of people telling others what they should be offended by?

    That commercial is FANTASTIC! WTF is wrong with people?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Speed walking does look pretty gay, I mean seriously.

    Re: MR. T

    The problem I have with it is that it never says he's gay. So the LGBT community is up in arms because he's shooting a guy who is speedwalking. Apparently to speedwalk you need to be gay.

    What a joke. The last thing I worry about is if some gay person is offended by something I did. That commercial is awesome.

    Boooo Human Rights Campaign, spend your time doing something better then being mad over a Snickers commercial. Also that gun looks like it would be fun to have.

    Re: MR. T

    I don't get it. The ad didn't say anything about being gay. Is the Human Rights Campaign attempting to reinforce stereotypes about gays?

    Did you watch the other one that was referenced in the article? I don't have a problem with either of these two commercials. Both were pretty funny.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    This seems to be the norm anymore. We are all just to stupid to know what we really think.

    One more sign that English are going down the "Fallopian" tubes... This comes on the heels of better streets for drunkards to walk. Looks like Britain needs America more than ever.
