PETA requests 10-foot-high roadside memorial for chickens killed in accident
Oh, the humanity poultry! Last month, a tractor trailer carrying an indeterminate number of live chickens overturned on a highway outside Athens, Ga. According to reports at the time, there were no injuries — meaning human injuries. All the chickens perished.Now, I see what they're getting at here, if you look beyond the sheer WTFery. Eventually, PETA's going to have one of these requests granted, and they'll get their sign. It will be another step towards their perfect world of no processed food, because that's what they're really getting at here.
To underscore that their deaths were not in vain, the watchdog group, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), has asked the Georgia Department of Transportation to erect a 10-foot-high roadside memorial.
It does make you wonder, doesn't it, what exactly PETA's grand end goal is here. They have campaigned long and hard against keeping animals for food - do they really want a return to the hunter-gatherer stage of man? Because that's what will happen when you stop tending food animals. One of the very first hallmarks of civilization was realizing that we could herd our food into one spot and keep it there; good luck undoing several millennia of human history.
Of course, the sun will most likely burn out before the deaths of freakin' chickens merits more than a passing "so, when's the BBQ"...
That is all.
