SALEM, Ore. – The City of Salem and the Oregon Department of Transportation have denied People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' request for permission to build a large chicken statue at the site of a truck crash that killed hundreds of chickens earlier this month.

They missed a royal opportunity to increase tourism.
That thing would have become a draw. Like the Paul Bunyan statue or the Giant Coffee Pot.

If they want a chicken statue, theyneed to come down here to Gainesville, GA. We have plenty of memorials to honor the poultry business that puts so much money into the area. .

In Marietta the first line of driving directions always starts with “You know where the Big Chicken’s at?”

It’s official...We’ve gone crazy.

We have a president who wants to kill us humans off with the world’s worst health bill, and we have people who want to save the lives of chickens. Lord, have mercy on us for we know not what we do.

Broasted Chicken. Have not heard that phrase since my younger days hanging out along the Ohio-Michigan state line.

PETA is so beyond nuts it’s pathetic. And going vegan is distinctly UNhealthy to human digestion which needs protein infusion just like all the higher carnivores.

Real question: I’ve heard of broasted chicken since I was a kid, but is KFC nothing more than the most successful of the broasting (pressure cooked) recipes?

"Lt. Dave Okada said “a considerable number” of chickens died in the crash, and many others appeared to have died during the cleanup phase." I'm sure that the "cleanup" was quite delectable.

A drummer with a bear head, behind a sign with a rabbit and carrot, the sign saying “Rhythm Chicken”.

Fascism raises its ugly head in the The People's Republic of Oregon. People of Portland this cannot be tolerated. Invade!

If that is a replica of the statue PETA wanted to erect, I can see why the city did not want it. That is grotesque. It’s a horrible representation of a beautiful (and tasty) bird.
