I would submit this to news but I'm not really sure how much stock we should put in this. This made me chortle -

I'll go with that, I'll eat anything "edible" that is put in front of me.

Shamu burger doesn't sound too bad.

Yay Sea Lion Surprise! LOL

Shark meat is really good too if you don't get a fatty piece.

Polar Bear Pot Pie?

Braised Beluga Whale?

Penguin Wings w/ fish sauce?

Shark Souffle?

Filet of manta ray?

Yeah, I could see Reb Lobster placing a bid.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar I couldn't access the article, but PETA are more or less fanatical, hypocritical a-holes, much like the ones who blow up abortion clinics. Don't get me wrong, I am all about being vegan if that's your choice, but there is a HUGE difference between animal cruelty and animal "rights." Don't get me started on how I feel about PETA. ;)

I agree with kpjb. If they would "release" those animals into the sea they would die immediately. The last time I was at Sea World the animals seemed healthy and happy and well-taken care of. That's what they are used to and that's all that matters. Now if I went to a place where the animals were NOT taken care of then I would have a problem. This is why I don't care for Petland. Petsmart has the right idea. Adoption is the right answer.

Forget Red Lobster, just open a chain of PW3's.

britishdebutante's avatar Most of you guys sound pretty ignorant. I don't think it's fair to judge a whole organization based on a handful of people who represent them. Although PETA has been extreme in the past, they have helped maintain a balance for animals and have done a lot of good for them.

There are many more effective ways to spend your environmental-activist dollar. PETA spends a lot on things that have big symbolic value, but have no hope of making a difference whatsoever, like trying to buy Sea World.

britishdebutante's avatar PETA is not really a environmental group. They focus on individual animals much like a human-based ethics group would focus on individual people. I'm not exactly the biggest fan of PETA, but I don't see why everyone is making fun of vegetarians on this board. It's completely off topic and offensive.

ROFL...Then why does noone come to the defense of ACE when people make fun of the 'Gravy buffet' crowd?

Oh, that's right......the stereotype is (mostly) correct...same for PETA and wack-jobs. ;)

PETa is a bunch of hypocrites. They have the carasses of hundreds of cats and dogs in the basement in a freezer. They are not for animal rights but anti-human. Vegans are nutcases since they are eating the solution to the global warming problem. I am eating the problem when I eat meat. When vegans eat thier veggies which has natural fertilizer on it, they are eating some by-product of a cow or animal waste. Yet they will preach which they don't eat anything that is any form of animal.

I remember when they would come to Chattanooga, TN to protest the circus and march around nude with just a board covering them to protest anyone who is eating meat. Guess what, I had a hamburger and some chicken nuggets and ate them in front of them daring them to knock it out of my hands. I didn't get to the top of the food chain just to revert to becoming a vegan.

Google "Penn and Teller Bull**** PETA" and try to find a video of it. Well worth the 27 minutes to watch it...

As for this, yeah right. They're probably doing this as a publicity stunt, where were they when CF was selling off the animals to Six Flags again?

How else do you judge an organization? If an organization of genius' chooses the biggest idiots to represent them, I'm going to say the organization is full of idiots.

PETA is a joke of an organization.

Have a pet? They don't like you.

Ran over a squirrel? They don't like you. (Unless you stopped and cried and took it home to give it a "proper" burial).

Enjoy spending more time in the great outdoors between the 15th and 30th of November than they will in their entire lives? They really don't like you.

PETA is only slightly behind ELF and Greenpeace in terms of terrorism disguised as environmentalism.

Awarness is half the battle dude. Keep 'animal rights issues' in a newspaper headline and it's only going to help publicize what you're fighting for.

Wow. A bunch of conclusion jumping and faulty logic.

^ - really? Plants process CO2 (a "greenhouse gas") and emit O2 as a byproduct. Vegans, eating more plant matter, are removing that which eliminates CO2.

Not too much of a conclusion jump there.

Secondly, how else do you get natural fertilizer? It would have to come from animals somehow, and most likely they would be raised for just that purpose. Meaning your naturally fertilized vegetables require the raising of animals specifically to be used by humans.

1. Since large amounts of C02 are generated from animal based diets, it is a conclusion jump.

2. 'Most likely'? Another conclusion jump.

britishdebutante's avatar The factory farming industry has far more of an effect on CO2 emissions than any "vegan eating more plants" does.
