PETA Peeved About Tossing Dead Fish

pikeplaceAs Comedian Jim Gaffigan says, “I love animals, they taste delicious.”

I usually ignore the stories involving PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), but this one was just too good to ignore.  The Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle is world famous for their fish throwing.  Now, these fish are dead and ready to buy for a tasty meal.  PETA is not irritated that the fish were killed, (well, maybe a little irritated),  but they seem to be more peeved that the dead fish are tossed around as a show. 

They seem to have so much influence on the weak minded that they have convinced the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) to not have a demonstration with actual fish .  Maybe they could use rubber fish.  Oh, can’t wait to see that.   Should make for a great video.

In a story from a Seattle TV station:

In a letter sent to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), PETA says fish are intelligent, sensitive animals. PETA writes: “You should know that people who care about animals are appalled that a veterinary organization, whose purpose is to represent the interests of those whose jobs involve protecting the well-being of animals, would promote an event in which animals are treated so disrespectfully and are handled as if they were toys.”

 OK, let me get this straight.  PETA is mad because the fish market (that’s a place where they sell fish for people to EAT) is tossing the dead fish around and that’s disrespectful.  Nothing about whether eating the fish are disrespectful, but maybe that is just implied by PETA being involved. 

Where I come from PETA means “People Eat Tasty Animals.”  I think I’ll go have a Fish sandwich and call it a night.  Could you pass the Tartar Sauce?


Of course, this is just my opinion.
