Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: It was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping thirty tons of nerve gas on it.
Other interesting news:
- They're making a Fraggle Rock movie!
- The unaltered Star Wars Trilogy is coming to DVD in September
- Having a wife is 'better than a dog, but a terrible loss of time'
And in weird, disturbing, sick news: PETA has officially gone insane.
They've released a comic for kids, to scare them into thinking their parents are murderers. Teaching kids to care about animals is all well and good, but this crosses the line. The artwork is disturbing, and I think it would give kids nightmares!
Ask your Daddy why he's hooked on killing!
The end of the comic warns children:
"Until your daddy learns it's not fun to kill, keep your doggies and kitties away from him. He's so hooked on killing defenseless animals, they could be next."
* Update: Tony commented that there's another PETA comic. Not to be accused of unfairly discriminating against men, PETA has also published a comic warning children:
Ask your Mommy how many animals she killed to make her fur coat?
We live in a violent enough society as it is. Kids should feel safe and secure in their homes, but these comics teach young children to think of their parents as cold blooded killers. That's gotta do damage to a kid's psyche.
Here's a video of a PETA spokesman trying (badly) to defend the ad campaign.
