Life It’s PETA Tuesday at KFC!

I’m a vegetarian, but the words “PETA protest” make me cringe. Usually they are obnoxious and rather unproductive, doing more to perpetuate the “animal lovers = radical fringe” image than really convincing people Quarter Pounders are a problem.
But the PETA protesters who’ve been hanging around outside the Capitol Hill KFC (10th and Pine, $3.99 Famous Bowls) every Tuesday are downright adorable. Politely passing out pamphlets are two delightful old ladies who bring along their beloved Japanese Spaniel and say “thank you” to every person who passes.
They also have endearing thick French accents. “We’ve been members for twenty years,” one woman told me, “We know ze people want to eat ze chicken, we just want zem to do it somewhere else.”
I’m not sure if they’re going to show up today, what with the crummy weather, but try to stop by some week and give them a hug.
