Angry Cookie-Lovers Threaten to Boycott Gay Oreo

Oreo Cookie just gave San Francisco a new reason to devour its delicious processed-sugar-filled cookies: the homosexual Oreo.

After thousands attended Gay Pride in San Francisco and New York City, Oreo created a photo of a rainbow cookie, which it then displayed on its Facebook page. Sadly, the cookie isn't available for consumption (yet?), but at least Oreo is showing its true colors.

Naturally, (or unnaturally, if you will), Christian cookie fans refuse to eat this gay confection. In fact, there's some threat of a biscuit boycott circulating on the Internet. Oreo's Facebook post generated some 22,000 comments from cookie-eaters on both sides of the wafer.

Here's one of our favorites from an anti-gay gay cookie person:
I support equality, but a cookie shouldn't have anything to do with sexuality of ANY kind. Classless move.
And to be fair in reporting both sides:
I really feel bad for the progeny of those boycotting Oreo. Those poor kids have no idea that the reason they can't have a cookie is because their parents have a brain the size of a peanut.
Ah, yes the children. Just think of what all these homosexual sweet treats are doing to your kid.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
