“A peanut butter and jelly sandwich can’t be anything but peanut butter and jelly. Creamy peanut butter and crunchy peanut butter can never, ever be a PB & J.’’

— New Hampshire State Representative John Cebrowski, resorting to an infinitely nonsensical (if not outright stupid) food analogy in order to (attempt to) explain how same-sex marriage defies the natural order of the universe. (A bill to legalize same narrowly passed the New Hampshire House of Representatives today, and apparently this goofy tirade was the best Cebrowski could come up with off the top of his head to voice his opposition. And while I’d be willing to wager that he didn’t sway many with his metaphorical outrage, I reckon he sure made some folks hungry.)

    This is almost as good as some of the spam the Buzz receives! On a more serious note, this is only the second post on same-sex marriage on the Buzz…

    I saw this a few days ago myself and LOVED it! It is now my official favorite same-sex marriage analogy. Trying to push incompatible ends of an extension cord together is SO passe. And it’s really the gift that keeps on giving, since now I get to decide whether I’m crunchy PB or smooth! Maybe I can be cashew butter instead? Or maybe some organic variety that readily separates upon storage? The possibilities are endless. 🙂
