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.

BTW, tomorrow I'll be picking up a nice fresh 26 pound fresh turkey.
Skip the turkey? Sooo skip listening to you on Thanksgiving?
I myself plan on skipping turkey on Thanksgiving day this year. That may surprise some folks, but I’d like to ask each of you to join me. I view it as a matter of health.
Please join me by swearing off on listening to anything McCartney on Thanksgiving day.
Thanks for the advice paul..I will now get a turkey and a chicken.
This has been the season of the dumbass rock star.
I’ll have Paul’s helping of turkey.
Paul, you shoulda skipped the Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
It fried your brain.
“More than 45 million turkeys will make their way onto American dinner tables on Thursday, and another 22 million are consumed at Christmas... “
No matter WHAT Sir Paul and PETA say!
I wish we could, but we just re-elected him.
I saw Sir Paul in concert about 20 years ago. Great concert but we had to sit through 45 minutes of a PITA lecture first.
I guess that the bacon cornbread stuffing is out too.
Can I still have my shrimp cocktail appetizer??
(Wow, 26 lbs!! How many people are you feeding??)
But, but we’re getting rid of greenhouse gas emitting varmits.
Any time I see the word PITA I think of two different acronyms
People Eating Tastey Animals
Pain In The Ass
Interestingly enough BOTH apply to Paul.
I bet that Paul had on leather shoes, belt and a jacket, as well as was driven then in a limo with leather interior.
What will happen to all these feel good vegans when some fruitcake liberal expert proves that vegetables are thinking, feeling organisms? And PETA?, they are responsible for the deaths of more animals than any research facility or all of them combined. Anyone that donates to them are mentally challenged!
Screw you Sir Paul.
Okay, you’re not invited then. There’ll be more room at the table for several wounded Iraqi and Afghanistan hero’s. It’s going to be a great time.
” turkey and a chicken.”
A couple of turkey breastices and a honey-baked ham here. None of which will go to waste...including the ham bone which will eventually wind up doing the backstroke in a pot of navy bean soup.
I’ll play your music while I eat turkey.
This is what is on the buffet Thanksgiving Day where I’m eating (I don’t think Sir Paul would approve :-)
Roast Turkey Breast, Stuffing and Gravy
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
8. Big family.......
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.
But in the same breath, they fight WITH EXTREME URGENCY to protect the MURDER OF INNOCENT BABIES!
Warning: Graphic Image Below:
Sorry if this upsets some of you, but this is what an ABORTION does to a child. There are even more horrible photos...but I won't post them now.
For humankind...ANY human...to elevate the lives of ANIMALS while simultaneously defending the actions that kill thousands of children every year is DISGUSTING AND HYPOCRITICAL.
I’ve had 10, but never went that big. Your gang must love turkey!
Hope you and yours have the best holiday and your turkey is tender and tasty!
OK PAUL! I’ll have a nice big T bone istead! You happy now?
Just got in from buying a 20 lb turkey, 4 chickens and 10 lbs of bacon. Good eats!
Sounds like a good name for a pig. Is he related to Mrs Paul
fish sticks? ;-)
Bugger off McCartney!
He?s just bitter because he lost a bundle in a divorce to a chick with one drumstick
Me, I’m having a roasted peg leg turkey dancin’ like a puppet as a centerpiece.
Don't need that kind of misery so pass the turkey drumstick and gravy. I prefer to be jolly.
