Now that Barilla has fully caved to the Gaystapo, I think it's time for a new slogan for their pasta brand. Please add your suggestions.
No pasta Fag gul for you
Our pasta is ass munching good!
Last I read, Barilla said only married couples would be in their ads, and NEVER gays...
Barilla Pasta; When it comes to standards we’re as limp as a noodle.
Dago for Gaydough!
Woppin and humpin to please!

The president of Barilla is apologizing for saying that he would never use a gay family in the pasta maker’s ads.
Guido Barilla said in an Italian radio interview that his pasta is for the traditional family and said gay people could eat another pasta if they did not like his message.
“We accept his invitation to not eat his pasta,” said Aurelio Mancuso, president of gay-rights group Equality Italia, in a statement in Italian.
Boycotting Twitter users shared the hashtag #boicottabarilla, or “boycott Barilla.”
But Barilla quickly walked back his comments.
“With reference to remarks made yesterday to an Italian radio program, I apologize if my words have generated controversy or misunderstanding, or if they hurt someone’s sensitivity,” Guido Barilla said in a statement. “In the interview I simply wished to underline the central role the woman plays within the family.”
Gay marriage is not legal in Italy.
He added, “For clarity, I would like to point out that: - I have the utmost respect for anyone, without distinction of any kind.
- I have the utmost respect for gay people and for everyone’s right to express themselves. I’ve also said — and I would like to reiterate — that I respect gay marriages.
- In its advertising, Barilla represents the family - because it’s what welcomes everyone and what has always been identified with our brand.”
They caved and offered a sniveling video apology to homosexuals on the net:
Gays threatened a boycott and Barilla apologized — twice.
Barilla;s has not "caved" to the gays. There's another thread about how the company has blown off the gay gangsters, if you pardon the expression.
Conservatives everywhere are buying the product in support, ala Chick-fil-A.
No Barilla for me’ya.
he apologized AGAIN, this time in a video
See post 10.
And here I composed one of my famous poems in Barilla's honor which I posted on the earlier thread this afternoon.
Well, at least I didn't pick up any of their pasta at the store today.
We at Barilla, now understand your need for a boy cot.
