McCartney says skip the turkey on Thanksgiving
AFP - Former Beatle Paul McCartney, a long-time vegetarian, has joined a campaign by animal rights group PETA to encourage Americans to celebrate a turkey-free Thanksgiving this week.
The British rock legend, sporting a gray shirt with an "eat no turkey" design, is featured on the website of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
"This Thanksgiving, Paul McCartney is urging you to say 'no, thanks' to turkey and 'yes' to a delicious, cruelty-free holiday meal," the group says.
More than 45 million turkeys will make their way onto American dinner tables on Thursday, and another 22 million are consumed at Christmas, according to PETA.
Each year, US presidents grant a pardon to one or two turkeys -- a tradition that only dates back to president George Bush in 1989, even though Thanksgiving was first celebrated by pilgrims who fled religious persecution in England.

This is what is on the buffet Thanksgiving Day where I’m eating (I don’t think Sir Paul would approve :-)

Rosemary Roasted Leg of Lamb, Apple Mint Jelly
Apple and Raisin filled Iowa Pork Loin
Dijon Mustard, Mushroom Demi Glaze
I’m taking his advice and doing a prime rib instead.
Good idea Paul. Glad you reminded me. Instead, I’m gonna slaughter a pig. Capital idea, Paul.
So if everyone skipped the turkey this year...does that mean that all those turkeys in the stores have died in vain?
What a waste.
What will happen to all these feel good vegans when some fruitcake liberal expert proves that vegetables are thinking, feeling organisms?
millions of fruitcake liberals proved that vegetables are thinking but clueless organisms on November 6

I’d like to send Paul a message to let him know I’m taking his advice: We’re having ham and prime rib.
Brits! Another McCartney Gaffe stay in your Country and tell your Countrymen what to do!
Money does not buy brains!
You’re self evident of the fact!
Just another America bashing fool!
He’s just bitter because he lost a bundle in a divorce to a chick with one drumstick.
FO Limey. Do something constructive, go find another peg-legged whore.
Paul McCartney and Wings?
Then again I'm a Blues fan who grew up on Rock 'n Roll, so I never understood McCartney the Beatle being so beatless.
Thanks, but no thanks...
Love turkey the next day, toasted bread, sandwiches with cranberry, mayo,..etc
There hasn’t been a single thing McCartney’s said or done since 1969 that I’ve seen as being worth 2 microseconds’ worth of consideration.
