Give Peas a Chance

It looks like the Arrogant Worms are on board with the campaign to establish human rights for plants:

On a tip from Lyle.

Fellow Anon,
You must be a Rhodes Scholar. I spent the past 20 minutes analyzing it and hadn't figured that out yet.

There was a time when people thought PETA was a joke, but there are followers who have burned buildings and killed ANIMALS for that cause. Even if it is a joke, there are idiots who will say "hey, that's a great idea! I can get into that!" and the next thing you know, there are celebrities doing concerts to raise money to "save the measles virus".

I'll never eat another vegetable ever again. I had no idea!

From the Belmont Club:

"But who is really being "empowered" by the Swiss committee's decision? Is it plants? No. It is bureaucrats. The point of vegetable rights isn't to give plants dignity but to transfer yet more individual human freedoms to activists and government officials."

Actually, this is great news. People who believe in animal rights AND plant rights have nothing else to eat. Unless they like bugs. Speaking of bugs, tropical insects face "extinction" unless they adapt to "rising global temperatures."
Bet the bugs are glad global warming doesn't exist.

Ah, conservativeteen - if it were just that simple - but... remember the 6 R's: a rat is a rooster is a rotweiler is a rotten boy is a roach is a rutabega.

As KHarn implies; herpes will be president some day.

Oh - yeah - he already was... Never mind. :-)

Neville Chamberlain: "PEAS for our time!"

Maybe he should have said CORN?

Vision's of Scarlett O'Hara clutching the soil of her beloved Tara in her hand swearing by everything that she will never be hungry again... apparently they didn't have veggie or animal rights back then!!!!

The libtard vegatable rights people are just looking out for "their own"!!! hyuk, hyuk, hyuk!
