PETA gets rude welcome in Brownsville

I read this and thought it was hilarious!! I'm trying not to offend anyone here but I can sit back and visualize all of this and it makes me laugh...

Group braves sprinkler system to spread message of chicken treatment

By Gilberto Salinas
The Brownsville Herald

April 14, 2005 — Why did the chicken cross the road?

Well, it depends who you ask in Brownsville.

A protesting trio from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), one of which was dressed in a chicken outfit, stood their ground Wednesday at The Chicken Stop as they briefly protested next to the local eatery. Then they crossed Boca Chica Boulevard to picket the nearby KFC for the restaurant suppliers’ treatment of chickens.

But if you ask the manager for the KFC, the chicken crossed in search of water.

“They already hit me in McAllen,” said John Olivo, shortly before cranking KFC’s sprinkler system at full blast and soaking the curbside protestors.

“I was already waiting for them here in Brownsville,” he laughed.

I'm all for the ethical treatment of animals, but PETA is a joke.

I think they should change it from PETA to PITA. A more suiting acronym

The problem is PETA seems to be full of fanatics. And, instead fo just sharing their opinions with people and talking, they have to try and cram their beliefs down your throat.

I dont know how making a spectacle of your self helps anything. Plus i think a little persacution is validating to them. (standing in sprinklers means youre doing sometning right i guess)

"If it doesnt purr or bark its food"

Thats great........ i love that.

Im with ya on thinking ppl should not beat there animals.. but a chicken... how can it live a bad life... its too dumb to know its @ss from a donkey.

And rodeo, who cares the bull gets a rope tight on his nuts... he gets revenge if he can get his horns in the cowboys @ss.... thats a fair trade.

thatsl iek saying u abused your gold fish.. he forgets hes hungry in 2 seconds if u dont feed him.

Only hting i htink i dont agree with is grwoing Veil..... thats jacked to leave a calf in a box for 60 days where he cant sit lay or even move a leg muscle...in the dark... I wont eat Veil.... but everything else is fair game...
