I made an LGBTQ sandwich.
Lettuce, guacamole, bacon, tomato, and queso.
It was delicious, but a lesbian chick got pissed off because she thought I was poking fun.


Don't poke lesbian chicks, they hate that.

Yellow mustard or brown?

I guess either way you're a condiment racist.

Lol. I live here in New Mexico. When they first put up the sign, a few people went nuts. The restaurant got on the news, they took the sign down. But they realized that people with a sense of humor liked it. So they put the sign back up and started printing T shirts.

You have got to understand the people of Albuquerque, NM. They are the least racist people in the USA. There are alot of mixed families here. Be it one Caucasian brother in law or a half Mexican grandma. We kinda don't care.

And the reason that particular slogan works here is that our Black folk population is only like 1.5%.

Heck, our Cholo gang members have non Latino last names.

When you lose the ability to laugh at yourself, when you start taking yourself too seriously, you lose perspective. I feel pity for those who can't enjoy a good chuckle. There's obviously something wrong with them.

Pickles set you off too?

I was in an Italian restaurant in San Diego a few years back, and I ordered an olive salad....

Ive never imagined how awesome olives could be! All colors and types for a salad symbolic of unity across all oLives!

All Olives Matter

this was a great marketing tactic and I loved it when I read about it. and, personally, I think that anyone who might feel offended by it just lacks a sense of humor!

and yes, I think in this case, the black olives did matter...so what can I say..

I feel sorry for those who lack a sense of humor???

When wth they ask me at Chipotle pinto or black I'm always tempted to say all beans matter. But that's just asking for a day ruiner any way you cut it.... And an awesome story.

I propose a neutral bean movement.

I'm offended on behalf of beans.

No more "beans make you fart" jokes either. Good lord, how do people think that makes the beans feel. So disrespectful.
