The biggest news? Dancing With The Stars is still on!
Get well soon Bill!
Barilla pasta President Guido Barilla set off a LGBT firestorm this week when he made comments on a radio show about never wanting to use a same-sex couple or a gay family in their advertising. Apparently, their advertising represents a traditional or classic family.
After people freaked, Guido Barilla tried to ‘apologize’. He doesn’t have a problem with gay people or gay marriage, just that: “In its advertising, Barilla represents the family — because it’s what welcomes everyone.”.
Is this guy from Italy or 19th Century Italy?
So he only wants to represent traditional families? What exactly does that even mean? In their commercials a guy spying on a woman as she’s cooking and two people who just met eating pasta à la Lady and the Tramp style. I guess creepy and trite represents traditional for Barilla.
According to this guy only sacral families suit their core values; the rest can still eat their pasta or try another brand. Let’s see, going to guess many will go with, try another brand.
They should send this guy out more often for interviews, he’s a great salesman.

I could go on and on, believe me, I could, but there’s a special place in my mind for Mr. Bill.
Mr. Bill is the clay figurine clown created by Walter Williams (sent to SNL as a Super-8 reel as part of SNL’s request for home movies) to parody children’s shows. First aired in 1976, 2 years later Williams became a writer on SNL and yahoo, more Mr. Bill.
As a funny, both strange and amusing side note, Mr. Hands, the man seen only as a pair of hands, but who does most of the damage to poor Mr. Bill was played by Vance DeGeneres, the older brother of Ellen DeGeneres, he was also a correspondent on The Daily Show years ago.
Over the years Mr. Bill has been used to advertise products, as answers in shows, in skits, movies, games, teaching about the environment and in anti-drug campaigns – he pops up everywhere. But always with the same pattern. Things start off well for Mr. Bill and those unfortunate enough to be around him like Sally and Spot. That doesn’t last long. Things go badly for Mr. Bill when Sluggo and Mr. Hands show up. Mr. Bill suffers terrible humiliations that escalate quickly to his ultimate demise with his shrieking in a high-pitched voice, “Ohhhh noooooooooooooo…” . Is it wrong to think it’s funny? Perhaps. Is it funny? Yes. Very much yes.
