    PETA's Bloody 'Unhappy Meals' Making Parents Angry - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    I don't object to the message that PETa has (animals being treated humanely) but i abhor the practice.
    Kids shouldn't get Ronald "Michael Myers" variant McDonald happy meals and other media to make a point.

    When will they protest outside a Burger King with plush animals impaled on stakes as though the King was Vlad Tepes?

    Animals should be protected, should be treated with dignity and respect.
    This protest, accomplished nothing other than alienating most from the PETA cause, IMO.

    Killed humanely?

    Ok. What way would PETA like chickens to be killed? Sounds like it isn't the fact that they're being killed and eaten, so much as the way its happening. I think crabs and lobsters have it the worst anyway, BOILED ALIVE. mmmmmm lobster.

    edit: And I was so expecting this to be a thread about how much happy meals suck nowadays. I remember Happy Meals being the shit back when I was a kid. I couldn't wait to collect the next happy meal exclusive wave of toys. Do kids even care about the happy meals these days? I guess I just miss the Mcnugget toys.

    Yeah, kids would also be excited by t-shirts that say 'My grandma is a filthy whore,' and a stuffed hyena giving out razor blades. That doesn't make this a good campaign. And fuck PETA.

    They're fucking chickens. One lived happily for a few years without realizing that it had no head.

    Besides, not eating them would render their death pointless, therefore they would have died for nothing.

    Well, there's a new word...

    Anyway, stuff like this is a perfect opportunity for parents to teach their kids some critical thinking skills, as well as how to recognize emotional manipulation propaganda. Instead of complaining that PETA is targeting children, get kids thinking about why PETA needs to target children like this.

    I don't think you're not giving kids enough credit. I know I wouldn't be so satisfied with my "Grandma's a Filthy Whore" shirt if it wasn't true.

    All that advertising did was make me even more fearful of clowns. And hungry for some chicken.

    Remember those chicken McNugget toys I mentioned earlier?

    I would love for giant versions of those characters to kill and eat PETA during one of their protests. That would be sweet, sweet irony. Robot Chicken, are you listening?

    Peta is a bunch of idiots, they should be abolished like any other terrorist organization. They even free animals from labs and then cannot manage to care for them and kill them because they find the animals life is not in dignity.

    No way. They don't want people eating meat at all. They believe animals should be treated like people.

    PETA will never be taken seriously. Everyone understands where they're coming from, but they always have a very flawed execution.
