Capitol Police Say No To PETA Poop-Bucket Proposal

Idle 8

PETA found a way to make sure nobody would ever eat pork again. The organization asked permission to bring a pretend pig farm with real pigs, and 3,500 buckets filled with pig urine and waste to the US Capitol plaza. The plan would have worked too, if it hadn't been for those darn Capitol Police, and the fact that pigs are so delicious.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

They wouldn't let them crop-dust a pretend cornfield there either - it's not an agricultural area and the drainage is all wrong.

So their plan is to illustrate how annoying and ridiculous their schemes are, then try and get their point across? I really don't think this will work that well.

After a while, the squeaky wheel just gets replaced.

Knock it off.

You guys are the Al Qaeda of animal rights. Any validity to your points is buried under destructiveness and attention whoring.

You are not helping anyone. In fact you're doing more harm than good by pushing people that would be on the fence to the other side.

People who are too callous or ignorant to care about how horribly we treat other animals aren't going to be sway by anything you do. The best hope for your supposed cause is to reach out to the middle. Not to fling poo at them.
i'm not going to post this anonymously, but i won't read any replies to this because i don't have enough hours in a day to reply to, let alone read all the bile. It's not worth the stress. i'm sorry that i'm not going to reply to any rational replies. You can thank your anti-animal friends for making creating such a hostile environment. It's amazing how offended people get about who i didn't have for lunch today.

Flame away, Tool fans.

To paraphrase the poster above. "I am going to have a bullshit rant on a subject i know nothing about and not defend my rantings with any citation or reply to any inaccuracy.

Gawd and you reckon PETA is bad.

I think you're the asshole for calling him an asshole.
          PETA really are a bunch of jerks.
          Anyway in this case I can see them being turned away -- hog farms stink horribly (I live in Iowa), but a hog (shit) containment breach is a serious environmental issue, keeping thousands of gallons of shit in buckets is not safe.

Well you are obviously the Hitler of hyperbole.

The Stalin of overstatement?

How about the Genghis Khan of excessive drama?

Leave Tool out of this.

why bring pig waste? (1)

If fifty PETA members loitered for more than an hour, they would probably smell as bad. Capitol Police would arm themselves with soap and water, routing the smelly hippies easily.
