Tell CBS Not To Air the hateful Tim Tebow Anti-Abortion Advocacy Ad and Replace it with the funny Mancrunch Gay Dating Ad they rejected or you will boycott the Superbowl, CBS, and it's sponsors.
Please pass this on.

From The Huffington Post:

So fine, CBS, show the ad. Even though you have a history of rejecting advocacy ads, even though it might upset some of your audience, let's do it -- we're a nation of grownups, and it's 2010. We can handle it, right?

This is the point where I punch a wall -- because apparently that only applies to pro-life ads featuring handsome football players wearing Bible-verse makeup. CBS has REJECTED the scary Mancrunch ad featuring two football fans realizing they leurve each other and making out furiously.

It's true! It's too hot for TV! Apparently the network that thought it was okay to have Frosty the Snowman talking about his PORN COLLECTION gets all squirmy when confronted with two schlubby dudes touching hands in the chip dish and then going in for the smooch (and by the way, for the fakest, spoofiest most non-lip-touching smooch ever.
