4. Guinness Teaches Men How to Hug
Wow, we'd never have thought Guinness would stoop this low. And for St. Patrick's Day! Hugging one another makes men gay? Srsly?

p.s.: The creators should have done a little research on the term A-Frame.

3. Foster's Beer Intervenes in a Tanning Crisis The company responded to criticism of this ad by claiming that in no way is this homophobic.

Explained a Foster's spokesman: "The humour in our ad is derived from a particular set of circumstances where our character seeks advice from Brad & Dan -- it plays on his perception of the awkwardness of the situation."

Yeah, awkward because your mate is acting gay.

Watch for yourself and decide:

2. It's Called a Manwich (You Fag)! Dude, like why are you talking about musicals and shit? You're a man and this is a Manwich, OK? You better start rattling off some football stats or I'm going to smack the gay right out of you.

1. Uh-Oh, Your Son's a Fag! (Brazil, Again) A picture is worth a thousand homophobic words. That's right, it doesn't take television to gay-bash.

In case the print's too small to read, the blueprint of this house features a color-coded key that includes a couple's son and his "buddy" watching Brokeback Mountain in the living room. The blurb in the corner reads, "If you gotta be strong, we gotta be strong."

Message: Your son is gay. At least you can drink yourself into a cirrhotic stupor with this here bottle of cachaça.
