Time for the idiots of the world to unite. It is after all the beginning of the silly season. Who better to get the butter ball rolling then PETA.
The idiots over at PETA actually want the TOWN of Turkey, Texas to change the town name for a day. Will someone please pass these crack addicts the cranberries!
The animal rights group sent a letter to Mayor Pat Carson on Monday urging him to change the name of the town in time for the turkey-based holiday.
The letter claims that turkeys suffer virtually every day of their lives and that eating the vegetarian alternative Tofurky comes without the suffering of the turkeys.
PETA wrote that it’ll treat the entire city to a vegan holiday feast if the name is changed.
“Thanksgiving is murder on turkeys,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman told the Associated Press. “By changing its name to ‘Tofurky,’ Turkey would send a clear message that delicious, savory mock meat is an easy way to celebrate without causing suffering-and give a bird something to be thankful for.”
PETA stands for ‘People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.’
Located in the Texas Panhandle, Turkey is known as the home of country music legend Bob Wills.
Residents told Amarillo’s KVII-TV that they are opposed to the name change.
