PETA doesn't care about animals. They don't. All they care about is making people angry, starting arguments, and playing the martyr. Without all the negative attention (which to them is positive publicity) their organization would die. These are attention starved kids taking Attention Whoring up a notch.

If they were to spend all their time caring for the animals they claim to represent, no one would pay attention and their membership would dry up in a heartbeat. This is also why they do these insane antics. All they want is attention. No atention=no PETA.

This is how you defeat PETA. "Just don't look. Just don't look."

Everybody knows the PETA is in league with the Illuminati of the New World Order, working tirelessly to take our rights from us and force their fascist views on everybody. That's why I take the time to toss gnawed chicken bones, grenade-style, into the middle of their rallies.

ill take a large order of chicken nuggets, a porterhouse medium rare, a roasted turkey and a full length mink coat.
Oh and thats to go please. How much to supersize??????

A vegetarian is to PETA as:

Ed Gein is to (a) Buick Le Sabre (b) Pancho Villa
(c)Herbal Essense Shampoo (d) the American Beef Council.

I can get with some Peta movements, like stopping the breeding of animals for fur, but come on, we gotta eat!

I grew up on a farm, and we had chickens as a 4-H project one year. I was maybe 8 or 9 years old, but I was quite ready to help Dad when it was time to butcher them. Chickens are stupid animals that are mostly good at eating, crapping and pecking each others' eyes out.

Oh, and they're delicious, too.

Super Bee:
A google search reveals Results 1 - 10 of about 487
which suggests that you didn't invent it.

You know I hate PETA people as much as the rest of you, but....wait, I've changed my mind, I think I may hate them more than a lot of you.

If I talk to anyone that states they have anything to do with PETA at all, I can make a safe assumption that they will have absolutely nothing rational to say about anything.
2004-03-12 05:45:06 PM  
Hae any of you ever met a cow? Spnd a few days raising one and you have NO PROBLEM slaughtering it for food. They're dumb as posts.

I was expecting PETA to go way over the top with this. This is tame. The Garbage Pail cards were incredibly popular when I was in school, and those were far more disturbing than these.

Hell, these are kind of cute. Even though PETA are terrorist-funding asshats, I still want a set of these cards.

The question on Ask Doctor Science the other day was "If we aren't supposed to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?"

You have to remember, the typical PETA members are such (delusional, hypocritical, stupid, assfarking idiots...) they completely deny the biological existance of the OMNIVORE.

If you can actually sit down and talk to one of these rejects for more than ten minutes without strangling the life out of them, they will actually insist that from a bilogical standpoint, no animal on earth was ever intended to eat both meat and vegitable matter at the same time. There are only strict carnivores, and strict omnivores.

They consider humans to be, by design, strict omnivores. The existance of cainines is simply a fluke. Or they'll deny that the human eye teeth even qualify as a true cainine...

On a side note, I don't make my friends go out of the way to find a restaurant that caters to my special diet. I've been to one restaurant my entire life that didn't have at least one vegetarian option. I'm not going to be a dick because I'm really picky about what food I eat."

I am really tired of you vegetarians and your liberal arrogant ways. You have no right to be an American if you don't eat meat and plenty of it. You must be some sort of left wing terrorist nut bent on world domination of some sort. If I ever see you in my neck of the woods I'll beat you silly with a half eaten turkey drumstick.

You petchula stinking hippies with your dirty ponchos and high fiber diets make me sick to my stomach. I bet you drive a hybrid-fuel-efficient car as well. farking pinkos. You and your wheat-grass swilling kind are the ruination of this fine country.

I would challenge you to a duel if I did not have to bring an extra handgun for you. So, stop hugging that tree and put on your cotton clothes and your best pair of birkenstocks on and meet me outside.

I got a bag of KIND!!

What do PETA members eat and drink, anyway?

Let's not forget, March 15th is Eat an Animal for PETA Day!

Oh man. Here we go again.

Milk is good. Meat is good. If anything, vegetables are bad.

Is just me, or are all the people you meet who are "moral vegans" women or gay? Sorry to generalize, but honestly, I have never met a straight male vegan.

If you're going to hell for that comment about cattle, I'm going to be several levels below for the joy I took in helping slaughter those tasty chickens when I was a kid. But I bet the devil puts on a hell of a barbeque!

Woo hoo homemade chicken nuggets tonight.
I dont mind being fat. The space aliens that are going to destroy earth only like to eat lean healthy people.

Ive been protested by PETA once. Im a furrier and when i moved my shop from NYC to Long Island they came and protested in front of the store. This is how they do it, quite smart actually. There is a ring leader, usually middle aged woman, and most of the time quite ugly. She recruits confused teenagers and tells them the horrors of killing animals, they do taste good though dont they. So there they are, about 10 kids and the ring leader protesting, jumping in the middle of traffic and almost getting runover to tell them that we kill animals. What you do is you get the names and addresses of all the PETA people, thats the tricky part but if you have connections it shouldn't be a problem. Then we started a barbecue across the street to egg them on, we had steaks, and ribs, and hot dogs, and burgers, and sausages, and all kinds of meat including chicken. Then after we ate, had a few beers we went across the street where they were protesting, stood in the middle of the group, and read off all there names and addresses. The protest ended about 11 seconds after that and they never came back. To this day one of the funniest days of my life.

I know that my 3 year old is at the table now with her brother chowing on chicken as we speak.If one of these asshats EVER handed my kids one of these cards they would have to drink their wheatgrasssoytofumixedgreens dinner through a straw.I am a firm believer in not hurting any animal or wearing fur because its raised for just that but the PETA bunch goes too far when they haress kids.I dont care why people eat what they eat but dont resort to making kids cry.WHAT WANKERS!!!

Awww, look at the cute little baby chick. I bet it would go good with a little honey mustard.
2004-03-12 05:59:07 PM  
Chickens are cute. They should be treated humanely for the duration of their lives. Of course, there are very, very few things that taste as good as a barbecued chicken breast dipped in this.

This was all over the news in Fort Wayne yesterday. Dammit, I wish they would have went to my kids school. I could have invited my brother-in-law to go over the finer skills of skinning an animal. Or at least offered these guys some fine deer jerky. ;-)

Ravi Chand 757-622-7382

just got this off PETA's web site it was his idea
feel free to call him and tell him how you feel

here are the cards

here was a comic
this was there "release"
For Immediate Release:
March 9, 2004

Ravi Chand 757-622-7382

Whitehall Chicken "nuggets" may be marketed directly to kids, but youngsters could find the deep-fried bird bits hard to stomach after seeing PETAs new "Chicken Chumps" trading cards. Accompanied by a giant "chicken" holding a sign reading, "Im Not a Nugget," PETA Vegan Campaign Coordinator Ravi Chand will hand the cards out to kids as they leave school:

Date: Wednesday, March 10
Time: 3:05 p.m.
Place: Harrison Middle School, 129 Windvale Dr.

The stomach-turning Chicken Chumps trading cards feature "Cruel Kyle," "Tubby Tammy," and "Sickly Sally," and they all illustrate the cruelty and ill-health effects associated with eating chicken. A fourth card, "Feathered Friends," contains fascinating facts about the beleaguered birds who are known to most kids only as "wings" and "drumsticks." The backs of the cards warn kids that eating buckets of greasy KFC bird parts hurts chickens and can cause an array of unpleasant side effects in humans, such as food poisoning and obesity. In recent studies of chickens sold in supermarkets nationwide, nearly half the chickens were found to be contaminated with bacteria that can pose serious health risks, especially to children. The number of obese kids in the U.S. has doubled since 1980, and 60 percent of kids already have fatty deposits in their arteries.

The trading cards are part of PETAs international campaign to pressure KFC to improve the treatment of the 750 million birds killed each year for its restaurants. Factory-farmed chickens are crammed by the tens of thousands into sheds and routinely suffer broken bones from being bred to be top-heavy. Chickens, who are still babies when they are killed, are often fully conscious when their throats are slit or when they are dumped into tanks of scalding hot water to remove their feathers.

Says Chand, "Kids would chuck their buckets of chicken into the nearest trash can if they knew how birds suffer in the meat industry."

Vegans are the funniest damn people on the world to fark with, Gotta love seeing the horrified look on their faces when you say that soy burger they just ate was pure red beef. ;)
2004-03-12 06:14:34 PM  
These guys are wasting their time doing this on a Friday. After all, this is what everyone else does:

Guess it must be ok as long as it has no legs, is cold-blooded and has scales instead of feathers. ;-)

Fish... it's the PETA-approved meat source!
2004-03-12 06:15:34 PM  
If they done this at MY kids school I think I'd sue them for harrassment.
PETA = Permanatly Enaged in Terrorist Activities?
2004-03-12 06:18:30 PM  

soia: Those morons should be locked in a cageful of mink. They are vile, smelly little weasels. That would teach them a lesson!

And as to chickens, I grew up in the country, I've been around chickens. You know what? Chickens are basicly just walking turnips. They are stupid birds. There is no reason not to eat them.

2004-03-12 06:20:03 PM  
First off, is that for real Armacham? secondly I hate PETA. There's always that classic debate over how it's our choice to not eat animals, as opposed to how we evolved from hunter gatherers with skulls nearly identical to that of a chimp, who have humongous canine's? Maybe we should put bears in jail, because they eat plants and animals, and i'm sure a bear can choose what he fancies.(have you ever noticed that we have canines and not horse teeth?) I'm completely against animal cruelty in any sort, but damn, they sure are tasty and good for you. Damn, now i'm hungry. goodbye.

bye the way, PETA is completely crazy.
2004-03-12 06:24:51 PM  
PETA, meet Greenpeace.

Seriously, I think PETA might be morphing into another Greenpeace.

/eats mostly veggies, scaled swimming creatures, occasional feathered ones, almost never furry ones.
2004-03-12 06:27:20 PM  
Because I am an American in full support of the First Amendment, I reckon these asshats have as much right to free speech as dittoheads and the religious right, though I'd never invite any of 'em to a barbeque, and might just throw a few punches if the likkers been flowing...

What ever happened to moderate Americans? Oh, they call us liberals now, I forgot.
2004-03-12 06:32:50 PM  
Is it wroung to tackle the guy in the chicken costum, and to well, start tearing churnks off it with your teeth while drolling and laughting sadistically?
2004-03-12 06:32:54 PM  
Seriously, the schools need to keep PETA's lopsided political message out of the classroom as it may take time away from DARE's valuable "science."
2004-03-12 06:33:33 PM  
Can I be against PeTA but for the ALF? Cuz I don't like being preached at (and I just couldn't live without chicken), but I like seeing research scientests murdered as much as anyone.

/Art over science!

Thanks ANTIMATTER :) I was thinking along those lines but stopping the fury against chickencostumedperson long enough to try and dump some dipping sauce on first.
2004-03-12 06:42:19 PM  
This liberal thinks PETA is full of shiat.

I think I'll start associating PETA with the religious right, we liberals don't need their tomfoolery associated with our side.

I say them protesting in front of a KFC, WHY???
Farking idiots, humans are omnivores.
And fur? For chrissakes, ever been to a mink farm? They are nasty little creatures.
Fur is fine as long as you're not killing endangered species to get it.
2004-03-12 06:44:59 PM  
HEY! As I said, meat is good food, but I say say one more word against minks (natures coolest mistake), I'm afraid I'll have to add you to my 'enemies ist'.

My father works for the local school district. One day these buffoons came to one of the local junior highs to protest milk. They gave out empty milk cartons with their own propaganda on it in the hopes of the kids not drinking milk. Instead the kids pelted the Peta morons with their own propaganda and laughed as they ran off campus and drove away. If I had my druthers, this would be followed by a televised beating.

I am not a vegetarian, but I like and respect PETA. They have a cause and they get out there and do everything they can to get their message out. I don't think this, or their other tactics, go too far. Their cause is an extremely important one, and deserves a strong, committed voice. PETA is dedicated to alleviating suffering, and I find the vitriol of the people on FARK overblown and poorly thought-out.
2004-03-12 06:58:15 PM  
One might disagree with PETA's tactics, but their cause is reasonable and extremely silenced through mainstream media.

I guarantee most people would stop eating meat if they watched the footage PETA documents.

I recommend their video "Meet your meat" to anyone interested in understanding what PETA is about
2004-03-12 07:02:24 PM  
I still challenge peta to show up at a rodeo and start protesting. I mean come on you want to talk animal cruelty? tying a bulls balls tight so that he jumps around in pain is pretty damn cruel, or how about they show up to a bull fight in tijuana , total animal cruelty there, slow painful death for the bulls. Or heres and idea go stop some gangbangers from having pitbull dog fights, that is total animal cruelty! I say they send some person in a dog suit to go up and confront those gang bangers with thier pitbulls and hand them some literature !
