Two stories about nutty animal activists.First,
in Logan, Utah a PETA protest on Monday against a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant drew about ten sympathetic bird lovers. However, it brought in significantly more Colonel Sanders fans.
A supervisor said off duty employees had to be called in due to an unusual rush of customers. "We had a line going out the door and through the lobby." From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., 211 customers came in. The Monday before there were only 130.
Said customer Rusty Smith, "I think there's a place in this world for all of God's creations ... right next to the mashed potatoes."
PETA was so good for business that the manager of another restaurant, who was visiting the KFC, said he was considering asking PETA protestors to come by his place to drum up more business.Second,
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty formally rejected PETA's request that he declare walleye pike, the state fish of Minnesota, off limits to fishermen. On July 29, the former Karin Robinson (she legally changed her name to GoVeg.com two years ago) sent a letter to Pawlenty declaring that because fish feel pain fishing should be outlawed.
So, would you like the chicken or the fish?
