WHAT THEY MEANT,
Homosexuality is a gateway drug to sex with animals.


WHAT THEY SAID,

- Cracker Barrel in a statement after removing Duck Dynasty products and quickly putting them back on their store shelves.

Please don't boycott us, forgive us as Jesus would, we need your business.

WHAT THEY MEANT,
I'm the shadow wife.

- Helpful information listed on a McDonald's staff resource website.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Eating our own McDonald's food will make you fat, avoid it.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"My suggestion to the Government of India is, the media has reported that we have issued visas to a number of US diplomats' companions. 'Companions' means that they are of the same sex. Now, after the Supreme Court ruling, it is completely illegal in our country. Just as paying less wages was illegal in the US. So, why doesn't the government of India go ahead and arrest all of them? Put them behind bars, prosecute them in this country and punish them."
- India's BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, on retaliating for the arrest of Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade in the U.S for breaking U.S. laws.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The Government of India should arrest all gay US diplomats and their gay companions for breaking Indian anti-gay laws.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"To speak in professional jargon, operatively speaking, we are not working with him, and we never worked with him. It is up to him to determine his future, we are not going to help him, just give him shelter."
- Russia President Vladimir Putin on former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden currently in political asylum in Russia after disclosing classified NSA documents.

We are not paying him, Snowden giving us information is more of a hobby while he visits Russia as a guest of the motherland.

"Twenty years ago, Phil and I were married here in Wyoming and today we’re raising our kids here on the same Wyoming values I grew up with."
- Wyoming Republican primary candidate Liz Cheney.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Today we’re raising our kids here on the same Wyoming values I grew up with only in Virginia where we live.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I was comparing my breasts to these girls, and I just assumed at age 11 my breasts were there for men to see, which is a powerful thing,"
- Lucy-Anne Holmes, on her campaign to end Britain’s Sun newspaper's Page 3 that features a topless woman.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
My breasts don't measure up to those on Page 3 so we need to stop the bare-breasted women on Page 3.

U.S. Secret Service is very good at being secret so we did not find evidence of widespread misconduct.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Where we have an employee whose religious beliefs restrict food or drink they can handle, we work closely with our member of staff to place them in suitable role, such as in our clothing department or bakery in foods. We regret that in the case highlighted today we were not following our own internal policy."
- British retailer Marks & Spencer after customers complained that Muslim check-out staff refused to serve customers buying alcohol or pork products.

I believe in Roger Ailes.
