A set of four Garbage Pail Kids style cards were put out by the psycho-extremists at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in 2004.
Good Eatin' -- Chicken is now the number one dinner choice of Americans.
Each and every chicken found in retail stores is inspected by the USDA or by a state system having standards equivalent to the Federal government.
Chicken is high in iron and protein, low in fat, and a good source of pantothenic acid, which plays a role in the release of energy for metabolism.
Mike the Headless Chicken lived happily for 18 months and gained 6 lbs after losing his head to the axe.
UNINVITED PETA INVADES SCHOOL
Garbage-pail kids: Sally feels awful eating that poop-covered, germ-filled chicken sandwich. Thats the message taken home last week by students from Isabelle Jackson Elementary School after a visit from the friendly neighborhood People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The animal-rights group demonstrated outside the school after its principal opted not to take PETA up on its kind offer to treat kids to a Hidden Lives of Chickens presentation (which, come to think of it, couldnt have been that much worse than LSD casualties ripping their eyes out in all those anti-drug educational films Bites was shown as a youngster).
And so it was, last Friday, that Isabelle Jackson kids were greeted by a PETA giant-chicken mascot bearing the hopeful sign Chickens are friends not food, while the organizations vegan campaign coordinator, Ravi Chand, handed the kids trading cards featuring nice chickens and not-so-nice kids. Designed in the gross-out tradition of Garbage Pail Kids and Wacky Packages, PETAs Chicken Chumps card series features grotesque caricatures of chicken-chomping brats: the ferociously flesh-eating Cruel Kyle, the Linda Blair-like Sickly Sally, and the endlessly endomorphic Tubby Tammy who has to use a bungee cord for a belt (as if Barbie and Britney werent already enough to make kids neurotic about their bodies).
According to a PETA flier, chickens are every bit as smart as cats and dogs. Chickens show sophisticated social behavior, explained UC Davis professor Joy Mench. Thats what a pecking order is all about.
