Earlier this month I wrote about Mike Huckabee launching a boycott against Doritos due to Frito-Lay releasing limited edition bags of rainbow chips to benefit the It Gets Better Project (of course, when people boycott places Huckabee likes, then it’s economic terrorism…but just a boycott when Huck does it).
That’ll show them. In fact, blogger Joe Jervis has acquired some of Frito-Lay’s financial information from this month. Oh, I’ll bet they’re sorry now!
Wait, what? But how can this be? Is the graph upside down? I thought Jesus was going to come down and set Frito-Lay straight. And those howls I hear from Frito Lay HQ don’t appear to be squeals of anguish at all. In fact, they sound almost like…laughter.
To quote Jervis:
On September 24th both Todd Starnes and One Million Moms called for a boycott of Frito-Lay/PepsiCo because of them there evil godless rainbow Doritos, which sold out entirely in 24 hours. It’s now a little over one month later and PepsiCo stock is up by 10%. Not only that, a reader with access to grocery sales data reports that overall Doritos sales are up by 3% for the same period as last year.
So…um, what do I have to do to get handful of moms at One Million Moms and Mike Huckabee to boycott my blog? I fancy early retirement.
