The next time a woman asks you, “Do these jeans make my butt look big?” you may want to answer, “Yes!”

The British tabloid The Sun has gotten a lot of mileage out of a story this weekend that reveals thousands of women in Europe are take “chicken fattening pills” to make their butts bigger. According to The Sun,

‘Women are so desperate for a bigger bottom they are risking their lives by taking pills designed to fatten up chickens.”

The pills are called an “herbal supplement.” In reality, many of the pills may contain animal hormones that have been linked to breast cancer and liver disease when used by humans.

Terrific, you can now add Campbell’s Soup to the Girl Scouts and the Statue of Liberty as things that lunatic Tea Party douchebags have now deemed unAmerican.

The same far right blogger who started the anti-Muslim Ground Zero Mosque controversy has managed to gin up a firestorm of controversy over the fact that Campbell’s now sells some soups in Canada and around the world that comply with halal dietary guidelines. Just like there’s kosher soups and Kelloggs has been selling halal-friendly cereal since 1988. Also, the soups have been on store shelves for almost a year.

No matter. Apparently when you eat soup the terrorists have won. Simply by making a free market decision to even consider selling soup to a billion potential Muslim customers, Campbell’s has incurred the wrath of the angry right. There is now even a Facebook page dedicated to boycotting Campbell’s Soup for being pro-Muslim.

The ignorance of the soup boycott has made America an international laughingstock.
