Disney Gumbo? Oh Hell To The Neaux!

This is so wrong it’s … it’s … well, it’s just another example of how Disney is ruining America. THEY PUT QUINOA AND KALE IN GUMBO! Only people from Hell California would have done such a thing.

As you might imagine, this caused quite a stir in Louisiana.
The video is hilarious. The #GumboStrong movement has petitioned the White House in this matter. Excerpt from the WhiteHouse.gov complaint:

Gumbo is important. More so even than showering after swimming at Holly Beach. Or making sure the antenna is adjusted before the Saints play so your papa doesn’t get all angry at you. It is as important as confession and tastes better than three Hail Marys and an Our Father. Gumbo starts with a roux – it always starts with a roux – this is not debatable. Including tomatoes is allowed, mais, ça c’est fou. But kale and quinoa don’t never go in gumbo! So please stop Disney from slandering this important food’s name.

Happily, this will not have to become a federal issue. Tonight, Disney withdrew the offensive video.

Be sure to watch the video above to the end. It’s really freakin’ funny.
