Capitol Police Say No To PETA Poop-Bucket Proposal 8

Posted by samzenpus
from the smells-like-victory dept.
PETA found a way to make sure nobody would ever eat pork again. The organization asked permission to bring a pretend pig farm with real pigs, and 3,500 buckets filled with pig urine and waste to the US Capitol plaza. The plan would have worked too, if it hadn't been for those darn Capitol Police, and the fact that pigs are so delicious.

    They wouldn't let them crop-dust a pretend cornfield there either - it's not an agricultural area and the drainage is all wrong.

    So their plan is to illustrate how annoying and ridiculous their schemes are, then try and get their point across? I really don't think this will work that well.

    After a while, the squeaky wheel just gets replaced.

    Knock it off.

    You guys are the Al Qaeda of animal rights. Any validity to your points is buried under destructiveness and attention whoring.

    You are not helping anyone. In fact you're doing more harm than good by pushing people that would be on the fence to the other side.

    People who are too callous or ignorant to care about how horribly we treat other animals aren't going to be sway by anything you do. The best hope for your supposed cause is to reach out to the middle. Not to fling poo at them.

      Well you are obviously the Hitler of hyperbole.

      The Stalin of overstatement?

      How about the Genghis Khan of excessive drama?

      Leave Tool out of this.
  • If fifty PETA members loitered for more than an hour, they would probably smell as bad. Capitol Police would arm themselves with soap and water, routing the smelly hippies easily.

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
