PETA demands bar change-its name because ye olde fighting cocks offensive to chickens
Some of the things people get bent out of shape about just amazes me.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to the oldest bar in Britain on Monday demanding that it change its historic name because “Ye Olde Fighting Cocks” is offensive to chickens. PETA director Mimi Bekhechi said the name should be changed to “Ye Olde Clever Cocks” because that would “celebrate chickens as the intelligent, sensitive and social animals they are,” according to an article in the Mirror. The pub is Britain’s oldest, according to Guinness World Records, and has had the name since 1872.
Thanks to Proof for the chickens.
