    I'm just so upset about the treatment of those poor chickens. After all they are nearly human. :eek: :eek: :eek:
    Did I mention I had hot wings for supper tonite :D :D :D


    Pamela Anderson is boycotting the Kentucky Derby.

    Anderson, an animal rights activist, won't attend the race because of its sponsorship deal with the parent company of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
    "It makes me want to avoid Kentucky altogether, which is sad because there are so many great people there," Anderson said in a statement released Tuesday by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

    Anderson, a PETA member who attended the Derby in 2001 and 2003, has been involved in a campaign to raise awareness of what she calls abuse of chickens in processing plants that supply poultry to Louisville-based KFC.

    "Like most people, I don't want to support cruelty to animals, whether it's forcing horses to race for our amusement or scalding chickens alive for our plate," Anderson said. "We have to be more evolved than this."

    KFC's parent, Yum! Brands, was recently named presenting sponsor of the Kentucky Derby. The company will put its logo beneath the famed twin spires at Churchill Downs, on a sign above the starting gate and on billboards around the track.

    Although her opposition to the Derby is not based on the Yum! sponsorship, Anderson did not look on it kindly. "I'm not shocked that KFC is sponsoring the Derby," she said

    at the end of the day, does anyone really care what she thinks ? at some point the REAL people need to set these people straight as to how unimportant they are. stop watching the oscars, the grammy awards, and any other venue where these off the wall morons collect and pat themselves on the back. :mad:

    :eek: Well.. The Liberal Media does print what it considers to be important! :mad:
  7. But Marlin, Pammy Big Boobs is right to a point. She thinks chickens should be respected and given their place in the world. The only fault with her argument is that she doesn't specify what that place should be, which is, of course, right there next to the mashed potatoes and gravy. :D

    Well said! I have very little to do with the entertainment industry including television. I refuse to watch network TV except for sporting events.

    On the bright side chicken will never be an endangered species as long as we use it for food. :D
