People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals continues to prove its cluelessness, this time by protesting a promotion at Six Flags Great America to scrap its Halloween-themed cockroach-eating promotion. The incredibly well-run (less of a donated dollar goes to overhead costs than 98% of all other charities) but idiotic group said the contest which offers unlimited line-jumping privileges to anyone who eats a live Madagascar hissing cockroach is “gratuitously cruel.”
Yes, but I would argue it’s not the bug that it’s cruel to.
Wouldn’t they be better serving the world if the protested every episode of “Fear Factor” instead?
my cockroach is very sweet and i think it would be horrible to eat her!
