Tofu itself isn't too bad. But PETA sucks.

Anything that can eat a human should be able to be eaten by humans.

Maybe it's a part of a program to scare the homeless into finding jobs...

Oh cry me a farking river... don't like it don't eat it. At least they're donating food to shelters. Probably a damn sight more nutritious than the normal influx of creamed corn and kraft dinner that people give just so that they can clean out their cupboards.

I'm sure all the complainers already bagged up a ton of 'real' food and brought it down to their local shelters...thus giving them some right to complain.

2001-11-21 12:11:48 AM  
Why are they trying to starve the homeless?
2001-11-21 12:12:16 AM  
Just great, this will cause more of them to commit suicide.
2001-11-21 12:12:57 AM  
OH, I guess the stumps are good enough for the homeless? They'll never know, just send them the stumps after you pop the top!
2001-11-21 12:17:25 AM  
So, like, will they send tofu frogs to Bush?

"Anything that can eat a human should be able to be eaten by humans"

turkeys eat humans?

I can see where this thread is leading.

Peta can GOBBLE GOBBLE my rod. Meat is murder, but it sure tastes good! They ruin all of the hot chicks minds with this scientology type bullshiat. Anything to have them wear a salad, though....
2001-11-21 12:42:09 AM  
I thought we're supposed to be nicer to eachother since the 11th not much more horribly crueler!
I'd rather eat a generic brand "mixed meat" hotdog myself...
2001-11-21 12:43:06 AM  
I think Peta should give themselves to Naafa
2001-11-21 12:44:25 AM  
well, hating PETA is pretty much constant no matter what situations may arise. this is the first nice thing they've done in a long time

"I'm sure all the complainers already bagged up a ton of 'real' food and brought it down to their local shelters...thus giving them some right to complain."

No, I bagged up some real food (staples, like sugar, flour, cream of chicken soup, rice, etc.) and donated it to the Kansas City Harvesters. It's really easy. They give you the bag, you buy the food, and they take it right at the store.

soup lines
free loaves of bread
5lb blocks of cheese

has run out on you and me
we do whatever we can
gotta duck when the sh-- hits the fan
2001-11-21 12:49:38 AM  
as an ex vegetarian, who did it more for health and ecological reasons as opposed to animal rights reasons, i dont really get how it is "scientology type bullshiat"...

i mean, one can take it as far as a political statement, but for a lot of people, its just a dietary choice... no biggie... jeez. (yes, peta is dumb.. yes, no one can make someone else not eat meat... etc, etc...)

now,scientologists? they are just fruitcakes.

i dont really get the connection there.

Ten kids in a Cadillac

"The group is also shipping tofu jerky samples to the Norfolk-based aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, now deployed in the bombing campaign in Afghanistan."

Oh, THAT will do WONDERS for morale.
2001-11-21 01:04:10 AM  
Oops. Sorry about the tags, folks.

Having been in the boy scouts and been in the middle of the mountains hunting around for nuts and berries after being out there a week, I can say with authority that if you're hungry enough you'll eat just about anything.

Having dated multiple vegetarians (while remaining a rabid carnivore myself), I can say with authority that tofurkey may be the exception to that.

'The year is 2140 AD...the place, earth. After the last natural food is used up, the population of earth is forced to eat only Soylent Green. PETA, who was formerly 'anti-meat' is forced to quickly change their stance to 'Meat is wrong...if it's from an animal.'. Employees of the Fark Megacorporation laugh.'
2001-11-21 01:34:57 AM  
Even soy-gluten "meat" is better than tofu...

poor homeless people
2001-11-21 01:38:45 AM  
thank you WageSlave. the rest of you people, isn't it good enough that they're donating food to homeless shelters? so for whatever reason most of you have this knee-jerk reaction to processed soybeans. fine, you have jobs, feel free to be picky. we are a capitalist society after all. but how can you fault them for of all things donating food to the hungry? and what's with that guy who said that thing about scientology? could somebody explain that to me?
2001-11-21 01:43:26 AM  
Ya gotta love the leafeaters for trying but I myself have eyes that face FORWARD. That would make me a predator, not prey. The only use I have for plants is decorating my house so that the ladies get that "he's a nest builder type, I should probably give up the booty" idea in their heads.
2001-11-21 01:43:55 AM  
I agree with Soylent Bob. I'm sure that truly needy people will be happy with being able to eat something at all.

Beggars can't be choosers...
2001-11-21 01:57:50 AM  
yay, PETA grows a brain. Actually doing something useful for a change.

Pity, though. I was looking forward to more good looking girls in bikinis made of lettuce, throwing their philosophy at me and telling me I should eat more vegetables. Well, tell ya what, babe, I could use a little lettuce right now...
2001-11-21 02:09:22 AM  
Isnt toruture outlawed? dam peta and there dumass self. there needs to be a peta tag made. i'm in the same city with them so i can crank call them for free tho. a good plus.
2001-11-21 02:22:01 AM  
Do they have a recipe for deep-fried tofu turkey?

I might try that.

~ Pinky ~
2001-11-21 02:41:54 AM  
It would be funny if they actually sent it shaped as a turkey. I wonder what they would use for bones in a drumstick. Celery?
2001-11-21 02:41:56 AM  
I want to invite all the PETA members over for my Thankgiving dinner. I'm having dolphin and baby seals They are so yummy with otter dressing and owl gibblets yum yum
2001-11-21 03:03:01 AM  
Now just one second Dugoil. I find that post offensive. How can you talk about a meal like that? Honestly, I don't know where you get off mentioning Thanksgiving! It's just wrong of you to mention it.

Though those Dolphins and Baby seals sound like goooood eatin'!
2001-11-21 03:07:55 AM  
Yeah, nice of PETA to donate those faux turkeys but my Thanksgiving will still go like this. Wake up at 5:00am.
Go out and KILL my turkey. Gut and pluck said bird. Have a nice breakfast of eggs, sausage, spam, bacon and spam, spam, spam, spam, spam. (Gratuitous Monty Python reference) Watch Detroit get there arse kicked while recently deceased turkey roasts in the oven. Carve and serve bird to family with mashed potatoes, giblet gravy and various veggies. Apple pie for desert. Them I'm going deer hunting. PETA still sucks
2001-11-21 03:39:23 AM  
I'm conflicted. On the one hand I'm a radical closet homosexual conservative who associates PETA with everything vile in America like homosexuality, atheism, lib'ralism, free thinking, and the environment. On the other hand, I also hate poor people and think they should all be put in camps.

Should I hate PETA for being a bunch of commie pinko fags? Or should I hate them because they're supporting some bloodsucking welfare slobs?
2001-11-21 03:43:36 AM  
Eh. I suppose it's good that PETA is pushing their agenda in a less psychotic way.

But just because an asshole does something nice once doesn't mean that they aren't still an asshole.
2001-11-21 04:18:45 AM  
People for the Eating of Tasty Animals?

MMMmmm, animals.
2001-11-21 04:20:29 AM  
Someday, PETA will have rail guns that shoot carrots...
Or maybe I'm playing too much Quake.
2001-11-21 05:18:09 AM  
I wonder if vegetarians crap green. Wouldn't that be weird..eating green leafy shiat all the time, going to take a dump..and nothing but green poop comes out? What do you wipe with, a twig? Who are you kidding? See those two pointy teeth to the side of your lips? Those are there to tear meat, not to nosh a granola bar you freakin tree huggers. Quit trying to outsmart evolution, cause it ain't gonna happen you hair-dyeing tongue pierced retard.

Dont worry. You'll eventually grow out of your 'PROTEST EVERYTHING' phase & see the world for what it is...a dog-eat-dog world where saving shiat is the LAST thing on your mind.

2001-11-21 06:00:05 AM  
They are at least donating food. Some of you guys would still hate PETA if they said "Nuke Afghanistan and forced nudity of supermodels!"
2001-11-21 06:07:10 AM  
All your tofu jerky are belong to them.
2001-11-21 06:08:42 AM  

Be careful what you say. I had to read that twice. For a moment i was about to sign up for life membership with PETA. Whoo that was close.
2001-11-21 06:16:32 AM  
Goatman: That would be two more good reasons to hate them, indeed.
