PETA Wages War Against Thanksgiving Dinner

I think the local gun clubs should hold a Peta Shoot. The winner gets to dress up the local PETA representative and barbeque him on an open fire spit.

I always crack up when I get to the line about turkeys being “gentle, intelligent” birds. The live turkeys I’ve seen were some of the most ornery cusses in the whole barnyard. Don’t know about intelligent, as I never got around to giving them an IQ test. :-)

We had turkeys when I was a child...and I was taught they were so dumb, they would stand out in the rain, and drown....

Who has ever been to a Thanksgiving dinner and been served tofurkey? I’ve heard Don Imus, whose wife is a tyrannical veggietarian or vague-an, say on air that tofurkey tastes horrible.

Does anybody know PETA’s position on Abortion? Maybe there is an opportunity for some political Aikido here.

Do they support murdering unborn children but protest against ground beef?

Every year the MSM finds some vegan nut who brags about having a Thanksgiving dinner without meat. They have been doing this for over 40 years.

As for the “pardoning” of turkeys by the Presidents, who wants to go to a zoo and pet one of these stinking animals!

Kill’m cook’em, eat’em! That is what they were hatched for!

Hey PETA, I had bacon for breakfast, I’ll have some ground beef based hot-dish (leftovers) for lunch. Planning BBQ chicken for dinner tonight... Tomorrow we’ll have both turkey and ham on the table. On top of the food chain and loving it.

I support PETP. People for the Ethical Treatment of Plants. As part of our mission, we kill and eat animals that would otherwise murder innocent plants.

I can assure you that the standing in the rain thing is not true . I have raised a few myself outside in Florida where we get some torrential rains and not one of them drown lol

The domestic ones are dumb as a box of rocks though. I had raised a tom with a group of chickens and that stupid bird would try get stuck every once in a while trying to squeeze himself in the little door of the hen house .

Of course they support abortion. More abortion = fewer humans around to eat animals. Serioulsy.
