The proposed 10-foot tombstone that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has requested be placed on U.S. 129 at the site of a wreck involving a tractor-trailer carrying live chickens.

I think a plaque in the nearest Roadkill Cafe would suffice.

PETA hopes "the memorial will offer food for thought to motorists in Gainesville, a city often dubbed the ‘Poultry Capital of the World,’" according to a news release from the organization.

LINK.

Food for thought, indeed. Anybody besides me thinks Fried Chicken sounds good for dinner tonight?

How about a memorial for the thousand of animals they’ve euthanized?

This was the first memorial PETA wanted to erect.

I just wiped out about 20,000 ants yesterday and haven’t had a single call from PETA yet.

How many accidents and deaths will that cause when people rubberneck to see what is written on the monument?

I once hit a cement chicken sitting on a cement block in the middle of the road, should I have erected a monument? I don’t think so. The cost of the oil pan was enough.

Not a ping, but how would you like your chicken memorial?

Fried or barbecued?

This is just a bullshit ploy to garner publicity.

They welcome the ensuing humiliation if it gets them headlines.

BTW they've killed 38,190 cats and dogs since 1998!

FINALLY, the free range chicken is given proper R-E-S-P-E-C-T !

My question is as follows: “Should the Chicken Monument be placed on the side of the road that the chicken was going to cross to, or the side of the road that the chicken started from?”

BTW, are plans in the works for an additional simple chicken pizza plaque to be placed at the point of impact?

If I had their e-mail address, I’d provide the exact location where I CREAMED A WHITETAIL DEER at 4:30 AM on I96 heading out of Grand Rapids last November. They can all go there and pray, masturbate, or whatever it is they do.

What a bunch of feralists. I weep for all the skunks, bunnies, armadillos, groundhogs, possums, etc. that litter our roads. Why doesn't PETA care about them?

I think PETA should also come out as anti-vulture because vultures are so disrepectful to the remains of all those poor road-kill critters.

A good BBQ gone bad.

Please note that BBQ was used as slang as a verb instead of it's proper use as a noun.

America is clearly a culture in decline.People are trying to tear down monuments to heroic soldiers and build monuments to dead chickens. What is worse is that they are extremely well funded and are taken seriously by far too many people.
