Too gay for America, just right for France

Speaking of McDonald's (see post below), the chain is running this gay-themed ad in France. Here's a translation:

Boy looks at class picture. Cell phone rings.

BOY: Hello. Yeah, I was thinking of you, too - I'm looking at our class picture. I miss you. Have to go, my father's here. Love you.

FATHER: Is that your class picture ? I looked just like you when I was your age. The girls were all over me! Too bad there are only boys in your class, you could be a big success!

ON SCREEN: Come as you are. McDonald's.

The French are unperturbed but some Americans are upset. They can rest easy. McDonald's chief operating officer, Donald Thompson, promises that his Christian principles won't allow such an ad to be run in America.

Hallelujah! We are safe to ruin our health eating at McDonald's without the intrusion of gay marketing.

(Hat tip,
