Is there anything P.E.T.A. wont b!tch about?

PETA Upset at Six Flags Roach Contest




Monday, September 25, 2006
GURNEE, Ill. - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Six Flags Great America to scrap its Halloween-themed cockroach-eating promotion.

A spokeswoman for the animal rights organization says the contest at the amusement park's FrightFest is "gratuitously cruel."

The park in Gurnee, Ill., is joining other Six Flags parks in offering unlimited line-jumping privileges to anyone who eats a live Madagascar hissing cockroach. The bugs are up to three inches long.

The contest begins next month.

Amusement park officials are defending their menu choice. Great America spokesman Jim Taylor says the bugs are nutritious, high in protein and fat free.

Same here. I'd slaughter baby bunnies by the truckload if it makes my life easier. THEY'RE JUST MEAT!

In my line of work I have delt with peta quite often. The two things that stand out is 1 the higher ups are in it for the cash most have 3 figure incomes, (why not live on what most americans do and put the rest to cause? ) and second most are ignorant kids that are clueless to life. I had one tell me that if we were ment to eat meat we would have pointy teeth:miff: I followed by pionting at my canines with my middle finger

lol i have heard that one by an ex boss of mine. also dismisses the fact if we werent supposed to eat meat it wouldnt smell and taste good, wouldnt provide healthy protein, and wouldnt be digestable. Jackass's all of 'em.
