IRVINE, Calif. An Orange County woman has asked the city of Irvine to erect a sign honoring hundreds of truck crash victims -- who were fish.

About 1,600 pounds of saltwater bass died on Oct. 11 when a container truck hauling them to market got into a three-way crash.

Roadside memorials have the potential for distracting drivers since the intention is for drivers to take notice.

This is “normal” for the Left Coast. No Rx meds required.

What about the billions of bacteria in the water that perished in the truck crash too? Do they not count? Are they not living organisms too? Does she alone get to decide which living organisms are worth honoring and which ones can be overlooked? Did she murder billions of viruses when she last cleaned her toilet? Does she have her house sprayed for insects? Until I know the answers to these questions I gonna have to go with “no” on the whole fish memorial thing. Now a charity fish fry might be just the thing to raise the funds for a memorial but then you’d need another memorial and you’ve just created a vicious cycle.

Those questions need immediate answering. PETA needs to put out an ‘official statement’, which I’m sure they’d readily do, in 2-3pgs.

I agree. I’m against the whole concept. It’s what gravestones are for.

I haven’t seen one since the late-70s/early-80s. Fish & Chips (w/malt vinegar) were good eating! Not as good as my time in UK/Wales (60s), and w/ pint of bitters, that was a fairly good snack.

She needs to put memorial markers in front of seafood restaurants. :-)

And if she feels the same way about our bovine friends, McDonalds.

Long John Silver’s are the only commercial place now, for F&C.

Ditto, have often opined what Hospitals/Doctors reaction would be were these ‘memorials’ placed in the Hospital rooms or Drs. offices etc.

Couple of years back PETA was “demanding” Fishkill NY change its name because it was detrimental to FISH.

When it was explained to them that ....kill.... was creek in the ‘Old Dutch’, it made little difference once the weirdos got their teeth into the project.

Notice it is still named Fishkill though......

When you slaughter a steer for meat, one organism dies; it’s intestinal flora lives on in whatever dump the offal is consigned to.

When you plow an acre of land to plant soy beans for tofu, millions of organisms die from loss of habitat.

As a sensitive soul committed to letting as many creatures as possible live, I eat beef and avoid murderous tofu.

I miss Arthur Treacher’s.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Treacher’s

Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips is a fast food seafood restaurant chain. As of 2008[update], there were 45 stores in 8 northern states of the United States which serve fish and chips. Its main competitors are Long John Silver’s and Captain D’s. Today many locations have been cobranded with Nathan’s Famous.

I think this woman would go completely nuts if she watched even one episode of “Billy the Exterminator” on the Discovery Channel. Oh the humanity! ;)

Yeah, man...those signs are highly conducive to developing cases of road rage let alone distracted driving.
