how delicious does real turkey look?
We can all argue about things being “so American”, but honestly, what was one of the first traditions in America? Turkey on Thanksgiving. Now these PETA
activists assholes are attacking a town for using the word “Turkey” as their name — of all times, in November.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has asked the mayor of Turkey, Texas to change the name of his town to “Tofurky,” a vegan turkey alternative.
So you want a town who has less than 500 residents and the only cool thing about their town is the name to change it to Tofurkey? This town has nothing, the majority of the town lives below the poverty line and their cool town name is all they have going. I’m pretty sure they’re just paying homage to turkeys, not promoting the eating of them. So whats your real agenda PETA? Do you not want people to even think about Turkeys?
Anyways… Lets get some things straight :
1) No one likes tofurkey. I’m not even sure vegans actually like it, they just know they can’t have the real thing so mixed cardboard powder and some other shit to concoct tofurkey. It is not turkey. I don’t care if it “tastes similar” (I’m sure it doesn’t) and you will never convince us (the American public) otherwise. Stop forcing your hippie ideals on everyone, if we want to eat turkey like they did at the first Thanksgiving, tough shit. You want to stop people from whaling? Fine, but thats in Japan. Leave the people of Turkey Texas alone.
2) Next time you want to give an incentive, don’t offer a tofurkey dinner to the entire town. What makes you think that anyone would go for that?
“Kids…this year we’re not going to make a turkey. Some hippies are going to come by in their electric minivans and drop of Tofurkey!”
How un-American does that sound? Did I go into a coma and this is now Canada? How about you throw away the tofurkey and drop off the rest of that meal at a homeless shelter. Seriously if you want to make a positive difference in this world do that — don’t force your bullshit ideals on people.
3) This is NOT like people wanting to change the name of sports teams from “Scalping Savages” or anything — those cases are stupid too. I can see if a HUMAN BEING is offended because a name is “offensive”. But if this happens, what is next? Are the Detroit Tigers stripped of their name because Tigers are endangered? Do we really care that much about animals? I’m pretty sure Turkeys are not intelligent animals and their only purpose in life is to be delicious and to breed before that so there can be more delicious birds.
PETA, I hate you. Always have, always will. You serve this world no purpose other than providing me with (now daily) ammunition to rip you apart with. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.
