McCartney’s McDonald’s McVictory

Written by PETA | July 14, 2010

 

After finding out that a McDonald’s restaurant in his hometown of Liverpool had plastered the walls with photos of him and the rest of the Fab Four, Sir Paul McCartney—who is known by all (except maybe the marooned fighter pilot on Gilligan’s Island) as being a longtime and outspoken vegetarian—was less than glad all over.

Refusing to let it be, McCartney urged his fans to boycott the fast-food behemoth. Surprisingly, the notoriously tone-deaf purveyor of patties seems to have gotten the message, and the photos have reportedly gotten back to where they once belonged.

Maybe next McDonald’s will agree to make improvements in the way chickens are killed for its restaurants. I’m sure Sir Paul wouldn’t object to Meat-Free Mondays at McDonald’s, either—or better yet, meatless meals eight days a week.

    PEACE……….LOVE………..and…….. THE WALRUS!!!!!!! KUKUKACHUKUKUKUKACHU In high school we listened religiously to the BEATLES. I can still see us in that blue bug “Ol Blah De Ol Blah Dah” winding down those country roads in Ohio marijuana sprouting up between the seats. It’s amazing we survived those crazy days and nights. What’s even more amazing is Paul McCartney to be a part of so many peoples lives. Laughs! Trips! Intimacies! How Do You take all that in? Well I guess if you are Paul McCartney you just keep going. Not content to touch the lives of every person on the planet he has set his tremendous passion to animals. What a lovely human being. One of my first thought provoking conscious raising awareness of the plight of animals that I recall came from the BEATLES. The song “see how they run like pigs from the gun” always gave me a feeling of sadness. The same image I had in my head all those years ago of pigs running from the gun still flashes before me everytime I hear that song. Paul thanks for sharing your LOVE and your MUSIC.

    I saw Paul McCartney in concert twice recently here in the UK. Hes a brilliant performer and his audiences obviously adore him I know I do . Knowing that he and his family are so compassionate just makes him that much more appealing. Hes amazing!!

    The Beatles covered “Glad all over” in a live recording as they did many songs. But back to the matter at handGo Paul!

    “Glad All Over” is a song written by Dave Clark and Mike Smith and recorded by The Dave Clark Five not Paul McCartney andor The Beatles.
