We all know that dead bodies should be buried, not eaten. So PETA is making Thanksgiving tables a little more relevant this year. We’re offering teens these miniature tombstones to stick into the plucked turkey on the table:
If adults think tombstones are too macabre a sight for Thanksgiving, kids can tell them that what’s really disturbing is that the decaying corpse in the middle of the table was once a gentle, smart bird until someone filling an order for a holiday meal shackled the bird upside down and slit his or her throat.
Thanks to honest young people armed with the facts, maybe next year people will give turkeys something to be thankful for.
Young people can request their free turkey tombstones from peta2.
