A super interspecies agenda

The Super Bowl unveiled a couple of uneasy truths:

  1. Denver sucks when it counts.
  2. Those pushing gay marriage have an interspecies marriage agenda.

Number 1 is obvious to anyone who watched the game. Number 2 is more subtle, but it’s working powerfully.

Raise your hands: How many of you watched, and got a bit touched, by the Budweiser puppy love ad? Cute, right? It was the highest-viewed pre-Super-Bowl-hype video, garnering tens of millions of YouTube hits. Its significance didn’t hit me until this morning when I read a review in the Washington Post.

Budweiser has made no secret that same-sex equality is a part of its corporate doctrine. Now, it is clear interspecies sex is equally an unspoken part of its corporate doctrine.

Consider this comment by Post reviewer Maura Judkis about the puppy love ad: “This continues the story of last year’s Budweiser commercial, which featured an interspecies friendship between a Clydesdale and the trainer who raised him from infancy.”  (Emphasis added.)

Yuck. Last year’s ad is obviously a parody of the continuing story of Woody Allen and the alleged intimacy with his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. Forget the fact that Bud tastes like soap water. I’ll never drink it again anyway.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to make love to my pet rock. She spends a lot of time in Seattle and Denver and, therefore, is always stoned. That’s probably why she loves me.
