Saving Animals Is Patriotic

Pop quiz: The War of 1812 was:online surveys


If you chose “B,” you paid more attention in history class than I did.

Washington, D.C., is issuing a license plate commemorating the bicentennial of the War of 1812, in which parts of the city were burned—including the White House and the Capitol—and they’re asking the public for design submissions.

Of course, PETA could not resist the challenge of finding an animal rights message in a 200-year-old war—but rather than focus on that unfortunate burning-of-D.C. thing, we thought it would be better to focus on the national anthem, which was written after a U.S. victory. How does this patriotic play on words strike you?
