PETA wants Iowa to ok 10-foot-tall memorial to turkeys
WQAD8 ^ | 4/23/14 | Shellie Nelson

Posted on 04/23/2014 10:07:17 PM PDT by smokingfrog

After a crash involving a truck carrying turkeys, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Iowa to approve a memorial to the birds.

PETA asked for the memorial to honor turkeys that died when a truck crashed April 12, 2014 in Sioux City, Iowa. The truck hit ten parked cars, and then tipped over, according to the Sioux City Journal.

PETA claims more than 500 turkeys perished in the crash.

The proposed memorial features an image of a turkey and reads, “In memory of the hundreds of terrified turkeys who died here in a truck crash April 12, 2014. Try vegan.”

They should do this. Parts of the Midwest really could do with more humor.

If animals aren’t supposed to be eaten, why are they made out of meat?

Let the survivors build their own roadside memorial. “To Tom, a dearer friend I’ve never known. RIP.”

If PETA could have resisted sounding like sarcastic, fussy blamemakers, they probably could have gotten what they want, the Towering Turkey Monument. PETA still may get it, but when they use slanted phrases like “Terrified Turkeys” or start evangelizing for their Vegan lifestyles unrequested, people are far less likely to help them out. A huge, realistic Turkey statue would be nice, but to read some plaque at the bottom of the statue calling us horrible stupid neanderthals for continuing to defy their meat free utopian ideals would e tedious and imposing, not so nice.

I was wondering what PETA has been up to since they don't have their favorite POTUS
in office anymore. They made So much money off donations from bashing Bush.

Let them. Let the world witness a monument to their stupidity. Let them buy the land, erect the memorial and care for it. Of course only with a deposit tgat will cover the cost of demolition once the novelty wears off.

So why doesn’t PETA provide the funds and memorial?

They are always demanding stupid stuff that requires OTHERS to pay. F-’em!

One of my goals before I die, is to somehow help defund PETA, so that a lot of the money they have wasted goes to local shelters to take care of the unwanted or excess pets.

These animals are worth more in my mind than these disgusting POS so called animal rights activists.

More terrorist consciousness shifting by PETA... next year this cult of satan is going to advocate beheading Americans on Thanksgiving with the help of muslims singing Obama songs.

So, who gives a damn what PETA wants or thinks? They are racists, all of them.

I'm sure the Stovetop Stuffing people are already planning to place a billboard near this site. Big competition from the guys at Ocean Spray, though.
