The Rachael Ray scarf saga cannot be stopped

Rachael Ray scarf ad clipThe latest: a group is threatening to boycott Dunkin Donuts because it didn't the run the now infamous scarf ad with Her Rachaelness -- it says pulling the ad is an appeasement to racists.

There is no victory, only degrees of defeat. And to think, all this started because some stylist at a commercial shoot picked up one scarf and not the other. The lesson here: pick your neckwear carefully. You never know when it could prompt mass stupidity.

Earlier on AOA:
+ The dumbest thing you'll ever read about Rachael Ray
+ One even dumber thing than the dumbest thing you'll ever read about Rachael Ray


My sources tell me that the photographer at the shoot did not plan on using a scarf, but Rachael showed up with an assortment of hickeys on her neck - apparently given to her by, yes, an Islamic fundamentalist.

I'm not going to make fun of the right wing fake outrage and the subsequent fallout. Because my mother told me that it's not polite to make fun of retarded people.

gah! that ad should be pulled because that scarf is so freakin' ugly...what stylist let her get away with that?
