Prats of The Week - Peta

Oh dear how sad to see that there is no end to the prattery of some organisations.

Step forward Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) who have decided that a pub founded in the eighth century in St Albans has a name that is very uncool for the 21st century, and which Peta want banned.

Peta want Ye Olde Fighting Cocks to be renamed Ye Olde Clever Cocks to "reflect compassion for animals". Cue complaints about sexism!

Peta director Mimi Bekhechi is quoted by the Telegraph:
"Changing the name would reflect today's rejection of needless violence and help celebrate chickens as the intelligent, sensitive and social animals they are.

Today, kind people are appalled by the thought of forcing birds to fight to the death and more people than ever are making the compassionate choice not to eat chickens, either." 
That has of course got fark all to do with the name of a pub!

There are surely enough real issues wrt actual cruelty to animals that Peta should be devoting its time and money on, not this absurd waste of time.

Peta, well deserving Prats of The Week!

    If I had a pub I would call it ‘The Disembowelled Animal Activist’.

    Many years ago, while I was still a student, I enjoyed a pint in the Fighting Cocks. Lovely place I recall. I suppose Peta will be trying to rename all the George & Dragons due to implied cruelty to dragons.

    Further suggestions:

    Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem in Nottingham should be renamed so as not to offend Muslims.
    The Silent Woman (near Wareham, Dorset) is misogynistic.

    Better stop there, it might give some idiot an idea.

    What utter nonsense! Like it or not, cock fighting, as abhorrent as it is, forms part of the social history of this country. I am not unsympathetic to the aims of organisations such as PETA, but they should be concentrating their energy on real issues of animal abuse and cruelty, not attempting to rewrite history!

  4. PETA also objected to donkeys being used to carry bombs. They seemed to be fine with the bombs as long as animals weren't involved.
