Who Doesn’t Want A Little Man Crunch? Um, CBS. That’s Who.

Just playin' some football here, boys

Man crunch. It’s a pretty nice duo of words. Not to be confused with man crush, which would describe my fondness for Matt Schaub. Man crunch sounds like something that could make its way onto Urban Dictionary as to define a threesome with two fat women. Or, if you think about it in another way, it sounds kind of gay.

Hey, whadayano?

Mancrunch.com wants to be a part of the Super Bowl commercial circus, but CBS has denied its 30-second spot, which looks like a very tame version of a classic SNL sketch.

Obviously, those at mancrunch.com are claiming discrimination because plenty of ad space remains for the Super Bowl.

From CBS’ point of view, I understand the decision. Upwards of 130-140 million people in the U.S. will be watching this game. A large majority of them will be men. So, CBS wants the ads aimed at young men who watch football so that it interests them … and then they keep watching football. So simple! And — going out on a limb here — not a lot men who love football are all that comfortable with the idea of two men dating. So, yeah, mancrunch.com gets the shaft. (Hypothetically)

But I really have no problem with this. That ad should be aired. The fact that it’s not just goes to show how ignorant and stubborn this nation still is. If an anti-abortion campaign can drum up enough cash to use Super Bowl air, a harmless spot for a gay dating Web site should be on as well.

I mean, seriously: What is so wrong with that 30-second spot? It’s as vanilla as possible. No one should be insulted by watching it. Brett Favre’s famous butt smacks should probably be blurred out after this decision.

And if people don’t want to see that commercial, here’s a novel idea. Change the channel, walk out of the room, go get another beer, drain the lizard. But just make sure you make it back in 30 seconds. You don’t want to miss seeing a guy named Pierre plowing his head into a group of large, muscled men, who then fall on top of him to form a dog pile.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    But: This is one of your better posts.
