Daily Show Skewers Barilla Chairman for Anti-Gay Remarks, Sizes Up the Gayest Pastas

Daily Show contributor Lewis Black went after Barilla pasta chairman Guido Barilla for his comments about not including gay people in its ads, finding it somewhat amusing that anyone would think “the classic Italian family” would be so nice and sweet and traditional if it weren’t for the gays.

Black showed a montage of fictional Italian families fighting at the table, as well as a random Real Housewives clip, mockingly declaring, “That’s the kind of family we need to protect from gays!”

Black also called Barilla out for the fact that its ads are nothing more than “horny women who are ready to bang the first handsome stranger who knows how to throw a handful of twigs in boiling water!”

Black also sized up which pasta company can now take the gay mantle, eventually settling on San Remo for advertising their gay-friendliness by showing off their “Skittles-flavored vagina shells.”
