"PETA said it also wanted to use the chocolates to protest bin Laden's torture and killing of animals..."

You'd think the special vegan chocolates would include almonds, given how nutty PETA is.
 
2009-11-18 10:45:06 PM  
Won't someone think of the poor cocoa beans?!?
 
2009-11-18 10:45:32 PM  
Wow, PETA does something right for once. Feels weird.
 
2009-11-18 10:46:15 PM  
I'm conflicted. It's cool that they are sending chocolate to the soldiers, and the "give the troops the chance to bite his head off" is pretty funny, but I hate PETA and non-dairy chocolate is nasty.
 
2009-11-18 10:46:25 PM  
PETA strike me as the sort of vegans who would happily serve and consume Soylent Green if they could.
 
2009-11-18 10:46:56 PM  
I find it ironic that the one animal PETA has no problem killing with fire are people. Anyone have an article of PETA protesting candy animals?
 
2009-11-18 10:46:58 PM  
Just don't let it be carob. If it's carob, I swear I'm gonna choke a biatch.

FTFA: PETA will also sell the chocolates in the U.S. and use the proceeds for its free winter doghouse program and spay and neuter mobile clinics.

Not one damn dime. I support animal welfare, but PETA gets zip. Zilch. Nada. Why?

The Seattle Humane Society does a better job, without the drama, illegal activity, or actually, y'know, killing the damn animals as a routine matter.

Carob, chocolate... What's the diff ?
It's still a tasty piece of a dark man...lol!
Bite him, honey, 'fore his mamma catches us!

HUNCAMUNCA. "Oh! Sir, about an Hour and half ago
He sallied out to encounter with the Foe,
And swore, unless his Fate had him mis-led,
From Grizzle's Shoulders to cut off his Head,
And serve't up with your Chocolate in Bed."

so, symbolic political cannibalism for violent, revenge based reasoning is ok, but cheezburgers are wrong?

just checking.

We use only the finest terrorists, dew-picked and flown from Iraq, cleansed in finest-quality spring water, lightly killed, and then sealed in a succulent Swiss quintuple smooth treble cream milk chocolate envelope and lovingly frosted with glucose.
 
2009-11-18 10:59:11 PM  
Who cares what PETA's opinion is on anything? They're against Osama, ooow that's a really timely stance, given that it's now 8+ years later. And vegan chocolate, yummy. Here's the real question, since they don't practice a "no kill" policy at their animal shelters and since it was 8 years ago and about 3000 people died not all of whom had animals and some of whom must have had roomies of one type or another how many more pets has PETA killed since 9/11 than Osama did with the attack killing that single person's pet with subsequent rescue problems.

I'll bet PETA has killed some order of magnitude more animals than he did.

johnnyTex: so, symbolic political cannibalism for violent, revenge based reasoning is ok, but cheezburgers are wrong?

Yeah, and apparently people we kill in Afghanistan and Iraq don't own pets that will starve and dehydrate either.

Or maybe it's okay to kill terrorist dogs.

For PETA, anything involving death to us horrid, horrid humans is jake in their book.

Wow. Chocolate.

Like a chocolate Osama Claus, or an Easter Binny!

Only more hollow.
 
2009-11-18 11:02:47 PM  
PETA... you know those sharp teeth we have on the sides? Those are for tearing meat.
 
2009-11-18 11:04:25 PM  
Does it have creamy filling?.
 
2009-11-18 11:08:00 PM  
this actually appears to be a step in the "sane" direction for peta

Okay so I didn't see the link but the answer is 21,339 pets killed by PETA in the last 11 years so if there were 20 to 200 pets killed because of 9/11 they've killed 100 to 1000 times as many pets as Osama did. Nice job PETArds.

I weep for the heaps of roaches that died in the chocolate slurry, but enjoy your craven image!

Yep. PETA killed 95% of the animals they took in during 2008. With animal friends like that, who needs animal enemies, right? PETA went off their mission long ago, and now they're just a friggin' bunch of lunatics.

Wait, I was at the devils house it's a nice place in Texas, got to meet his family and all, and I know he wouldn't serve box wine if you were good;)

I have no problem with PETA. They're goofy, but they're good goofy, and, for the most part, harmless when they're naked.

But when they put their clothes on they consume news cycles in a droll charge around the merry-go-round. And this in particular is a factional, splintered, divisive response--part of the sharpening kaleidoscope of our response to Bin Laden, to a man who wants to kill you.

Not kill bunnies and moo cows and fishies and kitty cats, but you:farking kill you dead as you're standing in front of the coffee bar on the 87th floor wondering why those pigs in IT keep putting the dirty stirrers back in the with the clean ones. He wants you to suffer a death so horrible you will throw yourself into the cool blue morning and hope to God you die or an angel catches you before you hit that ugly ass travertine they're always patching.farking kill you dead as you're thinking maybe that prick with the capped teeth who put his seat all the way back and never apologized is now charging the front of the plane and you watch it tilt, tilt, tilt the way the floor did during your first Spring Break in Ft. Lauderdale.farking kill you while you unpack the boxes in your new office in the Pentagon, and try to figure out if you can open these windows without getting in trouble because, Jesus, it's a beautiful day or if you should keep them closed and get cancer from the new paint or the new carpet glue, and wonder why you have three staplers and no tape dispenser and out your window is, no, that's crazy.farking kill you while you read this on your BlackBerry and think maybe you should be tweeting because everybody else is, and you go to the window because you think that sounded like a pretty bad car wreck.

Bin Laden is evil. This is a ridiculous marginal absurd farking stupid response. It diminishes this struggle.
 
2009-11-19 12:25:12 AM  
This does not diminish the struggle. It reminds me of the Iraqi card decks.

Not buying it. You can't have it both ways. PETA either is insane about the treatment of animals, or they kill animals.

I think they're insane. That website you listed sounded like it had shiat taken out of context. I can't see a person willing to be naked in front of a street full of strangers for "animals rights" but then go and kill one. Euthenasia isn't always murder.

FTFA: "In addition to giving the illusion of supporting the troops and protesting the Sept. 11 attacks, PETA said it also wanted to cash in on a cheap opportunity for publicity, while dredging in a few bucks with which to finance their next attention-whoring campaign use the chocolates to protest bin Laden's torture and killing of animals during and in the days following the World Trade Center attacks, when their guardians were killed, leaving the animals to die of dehydration, starvation or exposure to toxic fumes.

Fixed.
 
2009-11-19 01:15:41 AM  
Jesus- I feel bad for our troops. All they want is some chocolate and PETA decides to say, "FARK YOU! HAVE SOME SHIATTY NON-DAIRY CHOCOLATE!!" That's like giving a thirsty person a bottle of vinegar. Might as well just eat some bakers chocolate. Obviously PETA hates our troops.

/if it don't say "milk" somewhere in the description it ain't chocolate.
 
2009-11-19 01:20:45 AM  
Dammit, subby, you made me admit PETA actually did something good for once. I feel so dirty now.
