Anti-gay marriage protester (accidentally) sets fire to General Mills’ lawn with bowl of flaming Cheerios

A protester angry about food giant Generals Mills’ taking a stand against a proposed state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage accidentally set fire to the lawn at the company’s headquarters after torching a bowl of Cheerios.

“One in every eight boxes of cereal in this country is Cheerios,” the man says in a video posted to YouTube.

“This is really the treat for . . . homosexuals,” he adds, box of Cheerios in one hand, and a hand torch in the other.

The protest came after a prominent anti-gay marriage organization called for a boycott against the Minnesota company for its stance on the issue.

Some comic relief.

Had to laugh, not at his expense, though; laughing with him, not at him; although this is probably not the best spokesman for the anti-gay marriage movement.

I did feel a bit sorry for the guy in the youtube:

I don’t think so because he has been identified and has other posts on YouTube that are anti-gay.

I had to laugh though, he was so funny.

No, he’s authentic. Just funny. At least I thought so. In a nice way.

Who is this General Mills? Is he related to Captain Crunch?

My question is, why would someone upload a video to be seen by all when it’s gone wrong? Is there some sort of instant uplink to the internet or what?

Did he put the Loop in Fruit Loops? On a good note, now we can eat at ChikfilA and have General Mills cereal. That is two meals covered. Coincidentally, today I heard a Loopy guy explaining Egyptians wore oblong head gear because they were aliens. He was also talking about his big plans for the Mayan end of the world. Another Fruit Loop.
