Giants' Romo Partners With Three Twins for New 'Illegal' Ice Cream
NBC Bay Area ^ | Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Posted on 06/13/2013 11:21:20 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Sergio Romo struck a sensitive chord when he proudly showed off his "I only look illegal" shirt during the Giants' 2012 world championship parade, which called into question the since-removed Arizona law that allowed police to detain people based on the suspicion that they might be illegal immigrants.

Romo, a Mexican who was born in America, signed a contract with local ice cream company Three Twins to further the statement with the release of a new flavor -- "Sergio Romo's Mexican chocolate." Pints will be stamped with the phrase "It only tastes illegal" and are expected to hit stores in September.

Three Twins Ice Cream founder Neal Gottlieb released the following statement to the Haighteration blog:

"The inspiration of course came from the shirt that he wore at the World Series parade, which got a lot of people talking and thinking about immigration policy in the United States. Mexicans and Mexican Americans play such an important role in Major League Baseball and Three Twins Ice Cream that it seemed like a natural fit. While some claim to be offended by the logo and artwork, we think that it is topical, quirky and fun."

Here's a sneak peek at the packaging:

Last year I thought Romo was just childish. Then came him making political statements during the WS victory parade, then his meltdown at LV airport New Years day.

Now this.

Besides, the league has him figured out - the challenge fastball won't work nearly as well anymore.

Bring back Wilson.

Chocolate with cinnamon, got to admit that is a very Mexican combo.

I remember the “Day without a Mexican” and I darn sure enjoyed it.

Would illegals and other tax-dollar thieves enjoy a “Week without a Producer”?

No buying, no selling. No hiring, no firing. All conservative businesses closed. No movie $, no restaurant $. No lawns cut by Jose, no furniture dusted by Maria. . .

1 Week.

Shouldn't that have been called the “Day without a Mexican illegally occupying a job an American minority youth should have”?...

Well, if they really want to have truth in advertising, they’ll also issue a recall for product with e. coli and/or campylobacter contamination.

you know, that is a great idea!

It would be great to just go Galt, and let the Libtards fend for themselves, but more practical to Go Galt for ONE WEEK

How about INDEPENDCE WEEK? (Celebrate 4th of July, Independence Day, by going Independent from both riNO’s and Libtards all week long.

Don't buy gas, don't go to the movies, don't grocery shop, - nothing - ESPECIALLY anything that generates tax income to the government (sales tax, income tax, gasoline tax, entertainment tax, etc etc). Sit home all week, and enjoy life for a while as the libtards scream.

Lets see, 1/52 of lost government tax income = ???

show them who PAYS FOR all their idiotic government ‘programs’

It would be great if we could get people to do it in large numbers.

And all perfectly legal.

...and I'm talking about down to the mail box. Send no mail - if this causes a late payment, it'd be worth it.

A week would be better.

There was a local (Hispanic run) restaurant in my town that we frequented quite a bit. Really Good Food, nice staff.

They were closed on a day without a Mexican out of “respect for the cause”.

We never went back afterwords. Many didn't. They are gone now and good riddance.

For the sake of one day, this restaurant lost good customers....they lost the money they were making off of a free people living in a sovereign state. People who loved their dang food!

Can you imagine what a week would do to our opposition?

Why don't we do things like this? Hit them where it hurts. The pocketbook.
