Blake Shelton takes on PETA in Twitter showdown

Maybe the PETA folks think any publicity is good publicity but taking on the quick-witted Blake Shelton in a war of words on Twitter isn’t the kind of publicity they want.

Things started off nicely enough: “Hello @peta2…. Allow me to introduce myself… My name is Blake Shelton. This could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship!!!

They certainly established a relationship, but not a beautiful one. In the dozens of tweets, PETA extremist position has made them look foolish, and Shelton looks foolish too — but doesn’t care. In fact, he tweeted: Y’all know of any other tree huggin, bunny lovin groups I can p— off?

Then when PETA allegedly banned Shelton he tweeted: As it turns out I’m really all they have.. Ha! What a bunch of dips—s!

Here are a few of the exchanges:

PETA: Thanks 4 spreadin’ the word, animal testing breaks hearts!
SHELTON: So does a 30-06 at 150 yards!!!

PETA: 10 simple things u can do 2 make ur yard more appealing 2 wildlife
SHELTON: Thanks!!! Any tips on cooking them after I blast’em?

PETA: What’s ur favorite dumb comment?

SHELTON: It’s really not a comment it’s a word… It’s spelled PETA….

PETA: Only animals should wear fur!
SHELTON: Yeah, but they hide all the meat under there!!

PETA: There’s nothing funny about BBQing cats.
SHELTON: Ha! Ha! Sorry but when you say it like that it is damn funny! Ha!

PETA: Meat is Murder!
SHELTON: Yes, delicious murder….

PETA: Fish are our friends not our food. Sea Kittens have feelings too
SHELTON: Now I have a craving for fried catfish….

PETA: Impaling fish with hooks = cruelty.
SHELTON: Enduring that stupid comment = cruelty:

PETA We don’t believe in hunting, anyone or anything

SHELTON: Me either!! That’s why I use bait to make deer come to me!!

But a comment slamming the military did seem to strike a nerve with Shelton and he tweeted: Dear PETA.. Picking on our U.S. Military now? You’ve reached a new level of dips—ness!. Go back to fast food and sex with gerbels…

PETA: Feeling like a beached whale this summer?
SHELTON: More like a clubbed seal….

And speaking of whales, PETA’s billboard illustration of an obese white woman at the beach that said, “Save the Whales, Lose the Blubber: Go Vegetarian,” drew some angry protests.

For the record, becoming a vegetarian does not guarantee that you’ll be thin. You can still make really bad food choices and refuse to exercise and be not only overweight but pretty darn unhealthy, too. Many people who are vegetarians also take very good care of themselves and practice a healthy lifestyle, which may make folks assume that they’re thin because of what they eat. They’re not. They’re thin because they practice an all-around healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and good food choices.

But Shelton is no fool and he knows he won’t lose any fans because he decided to take PETA on. In fact, he tweeted: Man who’d of thought a little old drunken country singer could cause such a stir in the tree huggin world… Ha! I love this country…..

Now that’s funny. I don’t listen to country, but I might have to give this guy a chance.

I love Blake Shelton. He IS the MAN. PETA is just the food we nourish ourselves with.

Try ‘Baby’, and ‘Ol Red’ first off.

Country music is usually still told as a story, not just curse words thrown over a catchy (or not) tune...

Plus, you can actually HEAR and UNDERSTAND the words...

I think we should propose a Vegan Fart tax. You know eating all the vegetable material produces loads of green house gases.

Plus liberals are ALWAYS talking, which produces a lot of CO2 as well.
