Someday I’d like to walk into a crowded supermarket, go to the meat aisle, and say out loud, ‘Can you imagine: the FEAR, the PAIN, the SUFFERING that went into this aisle? Bwah-hah-hah-haaa!’
And then run like mad.
Actually, when I was a kid, I refused to eat eggs because I considered them “almost chickens”. We only rarely had bacon, and I’m not that keen on anything that comes from a pig. I don’t see how milking a cow (or a goat, or whatever) is very harmful; still I’d rather have tea.
But the PETA mentality is so monumentally loony I almost want to consume mass quantities of these things just to tick them off. I mean, if you want to be a vegetarian or a vegan, fine, do your thing, but kindly spare me the smug moral superiority. You’re still murdering living things to eat:
I find it odd that I live in times when “meat is murder” but abortion magically isn’t.
Good point. I have never seen it that way, but once it is said, it is of course obvious. It might be a very good argument to bring, with a surprise effect, in the struggle against abortion.
Mmmmm bacon. Wait… was there something else in that video?
Well, technically, I think it was Rashers (Irish/English bacon, not American style), so not quite the same, but still, yum.
i have a heart of stone.
Admitting that you have a problem is a good first step…

If my eggs are going to communicate, I prefer this: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JSwxZ5LcpVs
Now I’m wishing I had eggs and bacon for breakfast rather than a bagel.
Oh man, that was hilarious. PETA, like every other group of overly-earnest people – including many Christians – is completely tone-deaf to the music of human laughter.
(And, unfortunately, their overly-earnest enthusiasm helps discredit real concerns about factory farming and our steadfast refusal to honor the God-given animality of that which we eat.)

And music in general, it would seem. The background track sounds like it was lifted from a mild TV sitcom. I can’t think of how they meant this to be treated seriously.
Oh, no, don’t slay that potato!
Let us be merciful, please.
Don’t boil it or fry it, don’t even freeze-dry it.
Don’t slice it or flake it.
For God’s sake, don’t bake it!
Don’t shed the poor blood,
Of this poor helpless spud.
That’s the worst kind of thing you could do.
Oh, no, don’t slay that potato,
What never done nothing to you!
— Tom Paxton, “Don’t Slay That Potato”
I’ve got a 5 lb. bag of the infernal things in the cupboard. I don’t trust them. Those eyes – always staring at me. They’re conspiring with the onions to do me in while I sleep, I just know it.
