We all know that dead bodies should be
buried, not eaten. So PETA is making Thanksgiving tables a little more relevant
this year. We're offering teens these miniature tombstones to stick into the
plucked turkey on the table:
If adults think tombstones are too macabre
a sight for Thanksgiving, kids can tell them that what's really disturbing is
that the decaying corpse in the middle of the table was once a gentle, smart bird until someone filling
an order for a holiday meal shackled the bird upside down and slit his or her throat.
Thanks to honest young people armed with
the facts, maybe next year people will give turkeys something to be thankful
Young people can
request their free turkey
tombstones from peta2.
