Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
Meal Or No Meal

This is a great country.

I really truly mean that.

In this country anyone can create a platform from which to promote their ideas. The blogging world is a great example. Look at my meteoric rise to fame with my blog.

For those a bit more ambitious, you can create an organization or association to promote your platform. A very famous group and favorite of mine is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). This is the organization devoted to protecting the rights of animals against cruelty. They are famous for throwing red paint on people wearing fur coats or leather pants. (How come you can have a leather coat, but not fur pants?)
I generally agree with PETA that animals should not be tortured and deserve to be treated humanly. I also believe, however, that if a medical advancement can be achieved by testing with animals then that testing should be done.

PETA, obviously, is against the consumption of meat. Because we all know meat is animal muscles. PETA spends a lot of time and money trying to get people to stop eating meat. Their latest idea, I think, is going to backfire.

PETA is offering $1 million to a laboratory that can invent artificial meat. The meat must be "indistinguishable from chicken" (this tastes like chicken) in order to win the prize. I don't think PETA thought this one through.

Two points.
  1. Who do you think the laboratories are going to use to test their "indistinguishable from chicken" Lab-O-Chicken on? ANIMALS!
  2. Do you think any non-PETA members would think it is safe to eat Lab-O-Chicken? Um no!
I just wonder when the PETLOC, People for the Ethical Treatment of Lab-O-Chicken, organization will be formed.

This just in.
PETA has rewarded the $1 million prize to.............

McDonald's for their Chicken Nuggets. PETA said they were unaware McDonald's had already invented the artificial chicken because none of their members had ever set foot in a McDonald's restaurant since June1981. It was that way until, during a recent protest of the chain, that a protester with a bladder control problem was forced to use the bathroom at a McDonald's in Sacramento.
