Comments, and The Colonel

Written by PETA | September 19, 2007

Before I go on—if you had a comment that was published but disappeared from the site recently, please be assured that it’s nothing personal. We had a small glitch in our blog software, which we’re sorting out today.

And for the few people who submitted comments that never got published, sometimes our spam filter picks them up accidentally, so feel free to let me know if you don’t see your comment after a couple of days (though, if you’re one of those people who submit the ol’ “People Eating Tasty Animals” joke as if it were still funny, I wouldn’t bother).

In completely unrelated news, U.S. News and World Report just did a great piece about our new Colonel Sanders novelty pen—filled with blood-red ink in order to make a subtle point about KFC’s bloody business. You can check the article out here.

And finally, in another total non sequitur, my good friend Holly just reminded me that today is the official Talk Like a Pirate Day, so please don’t forget to, um, talk like a pirate. And if you need a little inspiration, check out our amazing Pirates of the Carob Bean video here, and see if you can guess which voices are me.

    Way to go Monique! There are lots of great online recipes and they’re free too! with yummy vegetarian meals. Also PETA’s Vegetarian Starter Kit has excellent ideas for those just starting out on this path you can order it free on their website too. If you still like the taste of meat which is not unusual for people who have been meateaters most of their lives there are many “fake” meat products you just have to try different ones to find out which ones you like I have to be honest and say that I have never found a veggie “hot dog” that I liked but I love the taste of fake “pepperoni”. Best of luck and try not to get discouraged by all the critics out there. You will be helping animals your health world hunger and the environment all at the same time! It is pretty horrific when you start to learn what really goes on in the meat industry so just keep looking for every small “victory”. Congrats!

    hi this is my first time on this site and I’m appalled at what I have seen I had no idea that this was the extend of the animal cruetly going on.This is not acceptable!! I’m not a vegitarian but now that I’ve seen some of these videos I’m willing to try it I dont want to help these sick people anymore and allow them to treat animals the way that they are being treated. The one that touched me the most was the one with the chickens being thown against the walls I just couldnt believe what I was seeing. It brought me to tears I guess I never realized or maybe I didn’t want to believe that this kind of stuff was really going on. Thank you so much for opening my eyes!!
