    PETA is I think,possibly the biggest group of radical idiots I have ever seen. I myself am an animal lover and in no way condone them. It would be just like them to applaud someones death. One has to be pretty choosy about what animal rights organizations they join. A good part of them are in for money,not legit,or just plain radical.

    Do you know PETA disapproves of the use of honey?

    Holy crap, God forbid we cultivate honey from bees!

    That is truly ridiculous!!! Did you see the other thread about PETA
    that says they are having a campaign in Germany to compare the Holocaust to animals being slaughtered. They are about nothing but money. They give true animal lovers like myself a bad name.

    Thats a good one! I remember hearing a story about some big fishing event and someone from PETA showed up wearing a big fish costume to horass everyone there. It was pretty funny. Ny husband and I couldn't stop laughing. DID you hear about the campaign recently where they were saying that men would grow ahem...boobs if they ate meat because of the hormones in the meat. I saked my husband if he thought he was going to need a bra i could pick him one up :D :eek:

    It's the "bro."

    They already did. Remember the Dr. Atkins fiasco? I still think the Atkins diet is unhealthy, but I'm not going to use the death of Dr. Atkins for an example of that...unless a trend starts.
