Lightbulb PETA & Lobsters

Just when you thought you heard it all.



People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asked Maine officials on Wednesday for permission to build a large grave to mark the site of a truck crash that resulted in thousands of lobsters spilling out onto a highway.A mockup of the gravestone shows a lobster with the words, “In Memory of the Lobsters Who Suffered and Died at This Spot.”

PETA wants Maine officials to build gravestone in memory of lobsters who died in truck crash | Fox News



"Countless sensitive crustaceans experienced an agonizing death when this truck rolled over and their bodies came crashing down onto the highway," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a statement. "PETA hopes to pay tribute to these individuals who didn't want to die with a memorial urging people to help prevent future suffering by keeping lobsters and all other animals off their plates."

Actually quite scary if you ask me. An organization with the $$ resources to attempt this and the gullible fools writing them checks.

It would probably become a tourist attraction.

People would go there, take photos, then post them on Facebook and Instagram etc.

There is no act too stupid that the idiots involved in PETA will not do to draw attention to their imbecilic goals of turning everyone in this country and others into a bastion of weenie vegans.

It would be nice if some day in the not too distant future we could do the same for PETA! Wishful thinking I imagine, but a guy can dream.


RIP my little lobster friends.....you were delicious!

I bet the boys back at the firehouse ate good the evening of the wreck!

While they're at it, move that deer crossing sign so they will cross in a safer spot.

Just my luck, the only time a truck carrying food near my house wrecked it was a potato truck. People were picking them up by the bushel! I just couldn't get too excited over potatoes, but lobster might get my attention.

I imagine the owners would be more interested in recovering lobsters than potatoes though.
