Mmm, what’s more delicious than a hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? That beautiful black tar has yanked me out of some of my most vicious New York hangovers, warmed my fingertips on the coldest of Chicago days, and–because my pal Jim’s parents are kind enough to FedEx him bags of grounds–gotten me through angry work days in Los Angeles. In a train, in a car, in my friend Pete’s house, outside my favorite corner bar. It is the universal coffee of happy goodness, rich, nutty, everyday yumminess.
And when I mean “hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee,” I don’t mean that wicked gross-looking, milky, iced variety that Rachael Ray was touting in recent DD commercial:
Yes, that’s right! I am offended by the stupid iced latte Ray is wearing in that picture. What a bastardizasian of good coffee! What an abominasian in the world of espresso! What a face-spittle on American coffee values!
Oh, and that purse/scarf combo? That’s a distracting bunch of accessories, I guess. Hardly as distracting as that offensive cup of joe.
Our favorite barking dog Michelle Malkin (and a bunch of her other fucktarded conserva-freak friends) was distracted by the scarf too. She yapped all week about how problematic she found it, on her
infinite pile of worthless, conservative drivel blog (Ed. note– I can’t bring myself to link to it, so if you want to see, you’ll have to find it yourself):
[I]t was with some dismay that I learned last week that Dunkin Donuts’ spokeswoman Rachael Ray, the ubiquitous TV hostess, posed for one of the company’s ads in what appeared to be a black-and-white keffiyeh.
The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant (and not-so-ignorant) fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons.
In response, Dunkin’ Donuts yielded and yanked the ads, even though they clarified that the scarf was merely a paisley print. The Boston Globe printed an excerpt of the official statement:
“In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial.”
I’m not surprised, but I am just delighted!
Why, you ask? Because I, too, think that everyone should believe all of the bullshit fear-mongering hype?
No, because I love animals!
And here, all in one cuddly room, we’ve got Michelle Malkin and her bunch of barking dogs… and Dunkin’ Donuts… a bunch of PUSSIES.
Who wants a flea bath?
