Doritos Nixes Communion-Themed Ad from Contest

by

Oh, these are heady days for a food writer looking for any excuse to use the term transubstantiation. Last week, we told you about an outbreak of hepatitis A linked to the communion wafers at a Catholic church.

Now comes word, via Grub Street, that Doritos has pulled a contestant from its annual "Crash the Super Bowl" ad contest for mocking the communion rite.

Here is the ad in question. Funny? Offensive? Dumb? What say you?
