Gut Rumbles

December 27, 2003


If I ever catch some PETA dickhead giving something like this to my son, I'll show that dickhead what DADDY DOES to dumb animals.

It won't be pretty.


you should read my post about PETA

I have seen these freaks on the street and I have the pleasure of working with someone who strongly believes in their cause. Why can't someone just step in and point out that they are totaly crossing the line with the way they project themselves? Attacking little kids does not justify their cause one bit. The vegan chick who annoys the crap out of me has been warned by HR to knock it off.

I've heard of them doing worse. Freaks will be freaks...

but tell me, do bunnys taste like chicken?

Hand one to my boy? I'd drop 'em with a quick right. No questions asked. As they laid on the ground, I'd crumple the pamphlet and stuff it in their mouth like the apple you see in a pigs mouth over a spit.

I have no tolerance for people that shove their beliefs down my throat. But shove them down my kids?

I still say, since PETA is on a mission to get everyone to be vegans, is to hand them fliers showing veggies being hacked up and the veggies screaming bloody murder. The veggies need air & water to thrive, so doesn't that make them have "feelings" too??? Ha!

There's a big difference between PETA and being (like me) an antivivisectionist. Sometimes, that fact is lost in peoples' haste to condemn PETA.

I don't think it's hypocritical of me to be both an A-V and a "dedicated carnivore."

It's the **needless** suffering of animals that I object to. The animals subjected to torture (e.g., the Draze eye test) for no reason whatsoever. Victims (or subjects if you will) of experiments for projects whose results were already tainted.

When I first moved to Houston, I became active in a local animal rights group, the now-defunct HART (Houston Animal Rights Team). I happily picketed the lab rat "farm" and a few other places, wrote letters to congressmen and others about the conditions in various "research labs" across Texas. But I stopped short when I was asked to participate in what I considered (and what HPD quite possibly also considered) an illegal act. The destruction of personal property. The game plan? To hurl zip-lock baggies of red paint onto women exiting a posh Galleria-area furrier.

My view of this, is that the animal is already dead. You can't help it now. Best to concentrate on those still living. Also, I tend to not wish to be a law breaker. Call it a personal pecadillo of mine.

Sorry to be so longwinded, Rob. As usual, you always give us a nice juicy bone to chew on!

Happy Holidays.

Just have your boy ask you, right in front of them, if you can go get a nice juicy steak for dinner. And be sure to take a photo of the looks of horror on the PETA-tards, I like laughing at stupid people.

"The game plan? To hurl zip-lock baggies of red paint onto women exiting a posh Galleria-area furrier. "

Why do PETArds do this? Because it's infinitely safer than hassling a bunch of leather clad bikers.

Sassy, bunny tastes something like chicken or turkey breast. Similar, not the same. Kind of like comparing trout versus catfish versus salmon. Although they all fish, they don't taste *exactly* the same. Quail and chicken and duck and turkey...all poultry, different tastes. Rabbit and chicken....completely different, but, sorry, that's the closest comparison that you would be familiar with that I could come up with. Actually, I think rabbit and squirrel would be closer in taste comparison, but you probably haven't had squirrel, either?

Ralph, you exactly right. I told my husband that if any or all of those jackasses wanted to mess up my leather jacket, there would be real blood all over the place. My husband told me he'd have the bail money ready for me.

That's all any southern woman needs is a good man with bail money.

Posted by: SwampWoman on December 27, 2003 07:22 PM

Swampwoman, I like you. AND your old man.

And you're right that rabbit and squirrel tastes a lot alike. Cook either one with dumplings abd you can't tell the difference.

Two lesbian frogs were talking after a bout of sheet rumpling and one said to the other," They're right! We DO taste like chicken!"

A few months back PETA put up a billboard in Pocatello, Idaho that stated, "Feeding your kids meat is child abuse." The response, spearheaded by a local radio station was to have a free barbeque underneath the billboard. Some 3,000 hot dogs and hamburgers were given away in two hours. The billboard was gone a week later if memory serves correctly.

Joni, the problem with your involvement with the so-called "animal rights" crowd is "taint by association".

You can't run with skunks and come out smelling like a rose.

So, even though I agree in principle that it's wrong to cause uncecessary harm to the critters, it's actually more harmful to your "cause" to lend any kind of support to the PETAards or their ilk. (and yes, some harm is necessary!

A huge percentage of critcial medical research requires lab animals for testing. I'd like to see the PETArds volunteer to take their places though. I can't think of a better use for those oxygen wasters.

Myself, I prefer my bunny grilled in a nice butter/soy sauce based, spicy glaze. Serve that over a bed of wild rice with an ice-cold beer at hand, and watch Bugs Bunny reruns.

Just doens't get much better.

Jim, notice I don't "run with" that pack anymore. Plus, I wasn't too keen on giving up the things I love to eat (still do): cows, chickens, fishies and piggies. (I'm chowing down on a poor hapless chicken as we speak/write, poor thing didn't know what hit it: grease, dredge and seasonings, to be specific!).

But I know what you mean.

they really do need a good backhanding.

no common sense whatsoever...

somewhere up in the northwest some PETA activist sat in a tree to block the tree's removal on behalf of a spotted owl nesting there. Unfortunately the spotted owl got pissed that someone was in *her* tree and ripped the activist a new asshole.

furfarms suck, just as puppy mills do. But alienating the human race does not further their cause.

Fur is a renewable resource.

Men are close to one another by nature. They diverge as a result of repeated practice.
