The Pickers

Ever heard of the Green Bay Pickers? Nah, me neither. Lucky thing, though, cause they almost became just that a couple years back.

Seems the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) group got a bug up their butt (would that harm the bug?) about the name Green Bay Packers. The Packers, apparently, are shortened from meat packers (them football players are all packin meat anyway), and that means hurting cows and pigs and shit like that. So they made a stink.

You can’t call yourselves the Packers, they said. It’s mean and pointless and wrong. Why not call yourselves something more benevolent? Like the Pickers, as in fruit pickers! That would be okay. Plants suck ass, they deserve to die.

There really isn’t a whole lot to say about this in general. It’s just an example, really, so I can officially add PETA to the category of stupidity en masse.

(To any PETA members or advocates, of course I mean none of the above.)

(To any intelligent people, yeah, I totally do.)
