Pamela Goes Postal on KFC

Written by PETA | January 22, 2007

The lovely Pamela Anderson has a thing or two to say about a new postal stamp under consideration by the US Postal Service that would feature famed chicken torturer Colonel Harland Sanders. After a little detective work, it becomes pretty clear that the evil masterminds behind the projected stamp are none other than KFC themselves, but Pam’s letter to the Postmaster has put a dent in their scheme. She writes,

Honoring a man whose legacy involves breaking animals’ bones and scalding animals to death in defeathering tanks is contrary to the values of most compassionate citizens, and I hope that you’ll deny KFC’s request. How about another Elvis stamp instead?

Anyway, as is so often the case, hooray for Pamela Anderson—I couldn’t have said it better myself. MSNBC reported on the story, and you can read Pamela’s letter in its entirety here.

In related news, KFC already has some battery-cage egg on their faces this week after Yum Brands (KFC’s parent corporation) put a bid on a warehouse in PETA’s hometown of Norfolk for a million dollars. What they didn’t realize was that the property was owned by the PETA Foundation, a nonprofit group that provides support services for PETA. We responded with what we felt was an extremely reasonable counter offer—that we’d give them the warehouse for free if they’d listen to their own advisors and make a few small improvements in their animal welfare standards. Unfortunately, they suddenly lost interest and decided that maybe they didn’t want a warehouse after all. Weird. The New York Times ran that story, which you can read here.

    So we should boycott KFC until they decide to add some string quartets on the way to the gas chamber? Then people can feel all better about eating their “happy meat”? Give the slaves longer chains and call it a victory for the oppressed? Thanks PETA.
