NO GOBBLING FOR PETA KIDS
Trying to get kids to think of Thanksgiving as something other than “Turkey Day,” PETA put up billboards in Nevada and California comparing turkeys to the family dog and asking: "KIDS: If you wouldn't eat your dog, why eat a turkey? Go vegan" with a picture of a dog head on a turkey body.This has angered a lot of people, especially since PETA is also offering tombstones kids can stick in the turkey that say, “Here lies the corpse of a tortured bird.”
We’re just waiting to see if PETA does the same thing for the Christmas goose …
