Yeah. Lie like a dog comes to my mind. This is ridiculous. Next thing Mr. Ed reruns will be removed. Here is the story:
The animal rights organization PETA wants you to change the way you talk.
The group recently tweeted a photo, which offered alternatives for common phrases that use “anti-animal language.”
One example is saying “feed two birds with one scone” instead of “kill two birds with one stone.” Another example is instead of saying “bring home the bacon,” you should say “bring home the bagels.”
“Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are,” the group said.
Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it. Here’s how to remove speciesism from your daily conversations.

Good idea, PETA. I will stop immediately the moment an animal tells me it’s offended by such sayings.
“Without its tough spearmen, Hellenic culture would have had nothing to give the world. It would not have lasted long enough. When Greek culture became so sophisticated that its common men would no longer fight to the death, as at Thermopylae, but became devious and clever, a horde of Roman farm boys overran them.”
— T. R. Fehrenbach, This Kind of War
"Yidn, shreibt un fershreibt"
"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."

I already appreciate animals for who they are, especially bacon.

peta kidnaps and murders animals so they can fuck themselves.

As a Jewish person, I'm offended by this
A famous bumper sticker once read "I love animals, they're delicious".
I would think the folks at PETA would be more sensitive to the air they breathe being offended in the way oxygen is being wasted on their brains. They should voluntarily stop breathing.
The plural of anecdote is not data. -Frank Kotsonis
Don’t they realize that their own bodies are killing viruses and bacteria at a fantastic rate? In theory, they should all kill themselves to stop the genocide...

How do I make them happy with " Hornier than a two peckered dog"?
“I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.”
Fuck them. Just because they opened their mouths again I'm going to be having turf n' turf tonight for supper.

There was a woman from PETA on Tucker Carlson’s show last night. I was embarrassed for both of them. Her for coming on television and trying to explain and defend the undefendable, and him for giving her an audience and his frat boy, mocking interview. I had to turn it off.
When you’re happy, you enjoy the music.
When you’re sad, you understand the lyrics.

Wonder if they'd be offended if I simply referred to this as "bull shit"?
And then there's this....
Guns are awesome because they shoot solid lead freedom. Every man should have several guns. And several dogs, because a man with a cat is a woman. Kurt Schlichter
Does that mean these shirts aren't available on the PETA webstore?
The Enemy's gate is down.

I have to get one of the PETA T-shirts that I saw.
Hah! You beat me to it.
A mind is a terrible thing.
I guess there is more than one way to skin a cat .. so I'll try the "feed a bird" thing.
PETA. Always bitching about something.
I like how the Brits say "there isn't enough room in here to swing a dead cat". That's funny right there.
I'm sorry, why does ANYONE care what these nutballs have to say about anything??

There are three types of mistakes; Those you learn from, those you suffer from, and those you don't survive.

I know it isn't usual, but a bacon sandwich on a bagel would be delicious.
And PETA is a bunch of loons. They will always be a weird fringe group, because they want to deny the fundamental nature of humans as a predator species. We kill and use other animals. That is what we are. They way we talk reflects that.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Sorry, that dog don't hunt.
