This Little ‘Piggy’ Can’t Believe You’d Eat Ham for Easter

Written by Alisa Mullins | April 17, 2014

PETA’s “pig” was stationed outside the HoneyBaked Ham store in Cincinnati, Ohio, to urge customers to have mercy on his brethren by not serving them up on a platter during Easter feasts.

It’s hard to imagine how the tradition of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus over the amputated, chemically preserved hind leg of a pig ever got started. After all, Easter is about new life, rebirth, and salvation. Ham is about none of those things—it’s about misery, destruction, and death.

Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to celebrate Easter over a meal that is a celebration of life?

    I want to personally thank each and every person involved in organizing this tour. I am from a small town in Kentucky, and it broke my heart that I was the only person that showed up that wasn’t involved with the tour. Even with such a poor turn out, the two members who were working the tour were nothing but KIND and APPRECIATIVE. They genuinely touched my heart. Thanks again to EVERYONE involved and to those who support them. We are all in this together!!!!
