We discuss mixed faces of Minkowski sums of poly-topes, and show that any stable complete intersection of pointed hypersurfaces is homotopy Cohen-Macaulay, generalizing a result of Hacking, and answering the topological (or weak) version of a question of Markwig and Yu. In particular, the complete intersection has the homotopy type of a wedge of spheres of the same dimension.
