Watch Lewis Black Weigh in on the Barilla Pasta Scandal

Last night on the Daily Show, comedian Lewis Black did a Back in Black segment on the controversy caused by the anti-gay comments of Barilla's chairman, Guido Barilla. After explaining that anyone who has ever been to Italy would "have good reason to be believe it is the most gay-friendly country in the world" because "it's basically nothing but beautiful men in neckerchiefs and fitted suits riding around on Vespas," Black lays into Barilla's comment that he would "never do (a commercial) with a homosexual family ... Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role." Black takes a look at past Barilla commercials and finds that instead of "traditional families" the ads feature "horny women ready to bang the first handsome stranger who knows how to throw a handful of twigs into a pot of boiling water. It's 50 Shades of Tortellini." Go, watch:
