    BOB'S TRANSLATION--- OUR UNDERMINING GAY FREEDOM IS NOT POLITICS OR A SOCIAL AGENDA

  2. This is obviously a crude insult directed at homosexuals, and can't be construed as anything else. Pathetic.

  3. They are also erasing all comments from their Facebook page. Cowardly beyond words. https://www.facebook.com/CFAchamblee

  4. right. and there's no way they didn't get the double-meaning. no way. no way this company was aware of any other possible slang interpretations. no way.

    disgusting.

  5. given the recent events with the restaurant you'd have to be ignorant or stupid to run something like that in an ad- oh wait, have to consider the source

  6. "Wha . . . ? Wha . . . ? It's just a joke. Can't you take a little joke?"

    Yes, fruitcake means a lot of things, and they know it as well as we do. That's why they're using it.

    Let them go. The more they pull these stunts, the more they marginalize themselves, the more they appear to be fools. They are not building their business in the long term.

  7. I'm unsure about this one.

    To me, a fruitcake is someone who is not very smart or is insane. I've never associated fruitcake with being gay so I'm willing to look past this one.

    Of course I still would never eat at Chock Full of Hate.

  9. Whats worse -- that this is an intentional slur against gays, or that Chick fil A is so pathetically stupid they didn't know this is an insult?

  10. What does that even mean?!

  11. Doesn't fruitcake mean "crazy", as in, "nuttier than a fruitcake"?

    Now, if they'd said "gayer than a birthday tablecloth"....

  12. I think the definition you use for "fruitcake" dates you. I've really only heard it as a derogatory word for gay.
