Alright, once again I find myself confused. This time it is about the so-called gay cookie. Tell you the truth, I didn’t know cookies had sexual preferences.
It seems as if Oreo decided to bake a cookie to celebrate gays. First allow me to say, Oreo owns their ovens and their cookie dough, so I suppose they can bake anything they like.
What I can’t imagine is why they would slap so many people in the face. Call them homophobic, haters or whatever. I call them customers. Are the gays and their supporters going to eat more cookies now just to make up the lost in the market? I doubt it.
I am in the car business. What if I ran an ad celebrating my love of fat women. Of course, I would show a picture of an old Lincoln. I would choose this car because it would be big just like them. This whole idea would be stupid. In this case, it would be an insult to BBW as well as much of my other clientele.
Same applies to a gay cookie. Say that they simply ran off 30% of the customers. To me that is a stupid move.
First thing you are taught when you’re getting into sales. Never talk about religion or politics and avoid sports at all cost. If you don’t you will loose way more sales than you make every time.
Still maybe I got this wrong. After all I have a small car lot, and they control most of the cookie business in the world. I will end this as I started.
I am confused.
