10 Reasons Barilla Shouldn’t Have A Gay Family In Its Commercials

Look, guys, spaghetti is straight.

In a recent interview, chairman of Barilla pasta, Guido Barilla, said the company would never use a gay couple in its advertising.

“I would never do (a commercial) with a homosexual family, not for lack of respect but because we don’t agree with them,” Barilla said. “Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role.”

Looking back at past Barilla commercials, it’s clear why they can’t use a gay family.

1. Pasta is an important food source for heterosexuals.

If gay people eat up all the pasta, then what will heterosexuals eat? Vegetables? I don’t think so.

2. Straight people rely on pasta to fall in love.

If pasta gets too gay, how will straight people have romantic dinners?

3. Straight dogs rely on pasta to fall in love.

4. And then straight people rely on famous portrayals of straight dogs to fall in love.

Have you ever experienced the frustration of being a heterosexual woman about to make some pasta and then a gay couple comes in and makes it for you? What are you supposed to do then when your womanly role has been usurped?

10. And of course, the foundation of a traditional family should be built on pasta.
