I wasn't going to post stuff today, but this just put me over the top:
PETA put out an ad starring Gillian Anderson based on the scene from the book (and crappy movie) Hannibal, where Anderson sits at a table looking drowsy and drugged out. As the camera pans back you see what looks like a leg carved up on the table for a feast. She purrs for the camera that eating meat "...is a matter of taste" and then the camera pans downward and you see that her own leg has been amputated. Violá, she's dining on her own leg.
Give me a f*cking break! Eating turkey is the same as carving up your neighbor according to these wackos. Because, you know, all the amazing things turkeys have done throughout history -- polio vaccine, heart surgery, saving those minors trapped in the cave-in . . . the list goes on and on showing turkey's contribution to society's survival and evolution.
We were put on this planet and given dominion over the land and the creatures upon it. They are our food. Period. Don't be cruel. Don't destroy the environment where you have to live. But I'm eating that turkey. And that pig. And that cow. And those eggs. And get off my f*cking back with your sanctimonious bullsh*t!
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, and after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."
aside: Nice rack on Gillian there. Someone get a boob job recently?
