Eating Cockroaches…

September 27th, 2006

PETA has now gone to the greatest extreme of protecting the “rights” of animals.  They are upset by the newest campaign by Six Flags’ newest Halloween themed contest.  Any customer willing to eat a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach will be allowed to jump the line. 

A spokeswoman for the animal rights organization says the contest at the amusement park’s FrightFest is “gratuitously cruel.”  Now, the question is:  is this “gratuitously cruel” for the cockroach or for the people challenged to eat them?  After all, this is a cockroach!

The good news here is that if PETA is busy fighting the cockroach eating at Six Flags, maybe they will be far away from my treestand come the middle of October.  So, thanks to Six Flags, and whoever is willing to eat one of those nasty things to be able to get to the front of the lines there at the park.

By the way, Six Flags defends its choice of “menu”…”Amusement park officials are defending their menu choice. Great America spokesman Jim Taylor says the bugs are nutritious, high in protein and fat free.”  Makes me want to get a whole plate full for supper tonight.  How ’bout you?
