Genius This Monday Morning, November 3, What Will You Be Obsessing Over?
posted by October 31 at 10:49 AMon
The potential glory of a President Obama? The potential horror of a President McCain? The even greater potential horror of a President Palin? The potentially heart-crushing necessity for a President Biden? Or just how to diminish the hangover you’re sure to have Wednesday morning no matter what happens Tuesday night?
Well, PETA will be obsessing over turkeys, and wants you to join them:
SEATTLE MOTORISTS GET MEATLESS MESSAGE ‘Thanksgiving Is Murder on Turkeys’ Banner to Be Hung
What: Motorists who drive near the Aurora Avenue overpass on N. 50th Street will be greeted by a giant “turkey,” who, along with members of PETA, will unfurl a huge banner that reads, “Thanksgiving Is Murder on Turkeys.” Activists hope to convince travelers to give birds a break this holiday by choosing a vegetarian meal.
Where: Aurora Avenue N. and N. 50th Street, Seattle
When: Monday, November 3, 7 a.m.
Thank you, PETA, for occasionally making being a vegetarian feel like being a Ron Paul supporter.
Despite the odd timing of the protest, it must be said that PETA is right about the grossness of eating turkeys:
Most of the 250 million turkeys who are killed in U.S. every year endure debeaking and declawing without any pain relief. Today’s turkeys are genetically bred to grow so quickly that their bones and leg muscles often give out under the stress of supporting their huge upper bodies. Millions die from heat exhaustion, freezing, and accidents during transport.
Also, vote Obama.
