No, but the person who came up with that ad campaign must be a retard.

Or you can get a half baked Alaska, which is prepared by Sarah Palin.

I love veal.
 
2014-05-30 02:32:27 PM  
I would prefer that the animals I consume not be mistreated.  Now pass the veal and foie.
 
2014-05-30 02:32:48 PM  
Well, it certainly would explain the near-epidemic population of autistic cows.

Ok.  i'm eating three animals for dinner just to say fark you.

I'm gonna stuff a chicken in a steak and wrap it with bacon.

Well that explains PETA. They must drink  A LOT of milk.

There are 10,000 Farkers? I thought this club was rather more exclusive than that.

Still, I'll have the veal marsala, and can I have my veal extra tortured please.

If milk was causing autism then the rate of autism would be insanely high. People like to think that common things are causing massive harm without even thinking it through even once.

They're Autistic? I thought standing around and chewing constantly was the normal way to be a cow.

They can't spell for shiat either.   Don't worry, scrotes, there are plenty of tard cows out there leading really kickass lives.

I suppose they figured their reputation can't get any lower, and decided to just go for as many outrageous ad campaigns as possible.

I think that'd be a reference to PETA's not-so-no-kill animal shelters, which are indicative of an organization that's better at being an attention whore than actually doing something constructive.

My in-laws are Armenian, so I've learned to cook lamb on the grill. A couple of years ago the neighbor's kid wandered over a I was grilling and said "That smells delicious. What is it?" I said "It's a sweet, innocent, defenseless, trusting, big-eyed, adorable, harmless, soft, cuddly, wooly little lamb." She said "I hate you."

To demonstrate just how important lamb is in the Armenian weltanschauung , two weeks ago my sister-in-law Susan came down to New York for my daughter's college graduation. She very nicely loaded up her car for us with my daughter's stuff. We made plans for her to stop off Sunday and invited her and Sona, my mother-in-law, to stick around for a barbecue. That Sunday the phone conversation went something like this:

Sue: OK, we'll be down in an hour.
Sona (in the background): I'm too tired. I'm not going.
Sue: Sona says she's not going.
Me: Tell her OK, we'll give her lamb to somebody else.
Sue (to Sona): Clambam says they'll give your lamb to someone else.
Sue (to me): She's rethinking the issue.
Sue: OK, she's coming.

The lamb was awesome.

Three?  Getcherself a great big shrimp cocktail, made with the tiny shrimp. You can eat a hundred animals in one sitting if you play it right.
 
2014-05-30 02:49:57 PM  
Just for this billboard I am going to sit on my back porch and shoot blackbirds/starlings/finches with my pellet gun until I run out of ammo.  Seriously, I am going to kill animals every time they speak up until they stop.

PETA pointed their derp cannons at the autism mother crowd?

They may have underestimated their target, because holy hell, those mothers can dish it out when threatened.

clambam: "That smells delicious. What is it?" I said "It's a sweet, innocent, defenseless, trusting, big-eyed, adorable, harmless, soft, cuddly, wooly little lamb." She said "I hate you."


In her defense, she might just hate you because you're an ass, not because you eat lamb.

lemurs: PETA's not-so-no-kill animal shelters


PETA doesn't run animal shelters (although PETA does stupidly reference their clinics as "shelters" on their website in some places), PETA is a lobbying group. PETA does offer free euthanasia services.

The most pernicious part of the "kills animals" lie, however, has nothing to do with how it affects PETA. It's that those services are one of the few good things PETA actually does to help animals directly because it reduces the cost burden on rescue groups when they take on animals that are too injured or sick to be healed. It also gives people who might otherwise have simply abandoned a sick or dying animal in the woods or street a place to go to put the animal down without a slow, lingering death in the cold.

But, by all means, don't let facts dissuade you from righteously misplaced outrage, this is Fark and the "kills animals" lie is one of only a small number of industry-paid propaganda pieces that we're okay with regurgitating blindly.

After all, it's not like PETA does actual stupid things that you can use against them like, say.... lying about autism.
 
2014-05-30 02:54:31 PM  

Noticeably F.A.T.: clambam: "That smells delicious. What is it?" I said "It's a sweet, innocent, defenseless, trusting, big-eyed, adorable, harmless, soft, cuddly, wooly little lamb." She said "I hate you."

In her defense, she might just hate you because you're an ass, not because you eat lamb.


If I'm an ass (and I'm not saying I'm not), why did she stop by to chat with me?

OK, it's just about lunch time here in the Pacific time zone. I don't think any of the local places are serving veal, so it's going to be lamb souvlaki today. Thanks Fark.

Bullshiat. Thats a quote from Airwolf

Stringfellow is giving some girl shiat for not eating a fish because its too beautiful, but she likes lamb.

ToastTheRabbit: I love PETA..... People Eating Tasty Animals


This is an animal rights organization that named itself after a tasty Greek flatbread that you stuff with beef, chicken and lamb. Mmmm, gyros.

/I'll be here all week, try the veal. Oh you ordered the osso buco? Excellent choice.

PETA: The NRA of the Animal Rights world.

When the target demographic spends more time disavowing these groups than defending them, it might be time for some rebranding.

Wait....

Caesarian birth is really on the list???  When there is a gathering body of evidence autism forms during in utero brain development?

You're missing age of the mother, and older mothers are more likely to have caesarian births due to complications.

One can hardly blame people for taking them to task for labeling something a "shelter" whose function is pretty much the opposite of a shelter.

But as a lobbying organization, their strategy of: "if we say something outrageous enough, people will see the light!" hasn't shown much effectiveness in practice.
