    Nancy Owen, owner of Alegra's Bridal and Invitations, said she was told she could not exterminate her ants. Instead she'd have to relocate them.

    "I couldn't believe my ears. I thought I was mishearing what they were saying," Owen said.

    That's when Owen knew the ants were an even bigger threat to her shop than she first realized.

    yeah, unfortunately a group I could believe in has been pretty much ruined by the radicals who seem to be running it. I love the idea behind PETA, but they are so beyond logic the last decade or so its embarrassing. [​IMG] I believe during the credits of Shawshank Redemption there is a disclaimer about how the maggots (that were fed to Brook's bird) died of natural causes. [​IMG]

    My current favorite is the KFC flap. Pam Anderson is running around the country urging people to boycott KFC, and Jason Alexander lost his spokesman gig for publicly criticizing the company - both at the urging of PETA, and both for the same reason: the cruel way that KFC raises its chickens.

    Small problem: KFC doesn't raise chickens. Never has. It buys them from Purdue and other major chicken producers, just like you and I do when we go to the supermarket. [​IMG]

    Jed, the story I've heard is there were people on the set to monitor the treatment of the bird, and when they went to feed him a maggot those people interjected and insisted that they not feed it a live maggot so they had to find a dead one. I had no idea that anyone would consider a maggot's life so valuable.

    A little song for said owner of Shopping mall


    Sung to the toon of be our guest from Beuty and the beast


    See My Vest



    Burns: Some men hunt for sport,
    Others hunt for food,
    The only thing I'm hunting for,
    Is an outfit that looks good...

    See my vest, see my vest,
    Made from real gorilla chest,
    Feel this sweater, there's no better,
    Than authentic Irish setter.
    See this hat, 'twas my cat,
    My evening wear - vampire bat,
    These white slippers are albino
    African endangered rhino.
    Grizzly bear underwear,
    Turtles' necks, I've got my share,
    Beret of poodle, on my noodle
    It shall rest,
    Try my red robin suit,
    It comes one breast or two,
    See my vest, see my vest,
    See my vest.
    Like my loafers? Former gophers -
    It was that or skin my chauffeurs,
    But a greyhound fur tuxedo
    Would be best,
    So let's prepare these dogs,
    Mrs. Potts: Kill two for matching clogs,
    Burns: See my vest, see my vest,
    Oh please, won't you see my vest.

    I would like to see what the owners wordrobe is made up of.

    I wonder if this chucklehead eats eggs,

    I would wait until it's late at night and spray them all with raid, then laugh in the evil devil laugh.

    PETA is good but run by morons. It's good when they don't allow some hick in texas to forcibly remove the teeth and claws of tigers just because they want one to look at. But killings ants? Give me a break.

    Last time I checked ANTS we not on the endangered Species List

    I Like to see what the members of PETA do when a Mosquito lands on them and how and if they "RELOCATE" them

    God I hate PETA... The original cause was good, but they are freaking out of control. PETA needs to be relocated to another freaking planet if you ask me.,.....


    R~


    P.S. I just went out and stepped on a boat load of ants and let me tell you that is a lot of ants.......... So F.U. PETA............

    Unfortunately, very few understand him (the proverbial wise guy)

    A few decades ago there were stories about how plants responded to speech, music, etc. They grew better, flowered more nicely, etc.

    I'm not sure that leaves the PETA extremists much to chew on

    Perhaps someone somewhere should make a special delivery of a batch of termites.

    Seems like it is no longer fashionable to be a PETAphile. [​IMG]

    (That was a pun! Meant in jest! Really!)

    Good thing PETA isn't lobbying for the well-being of parasites...relocating parasites can be a wee bit messy!

    I would call it Petahysteria. There is no feer of Peta just continual laughter at their pointless antics.

    It is good to see that both establishments have found new places of business
