    'Feed a fed horse': PETA mocked after call to end anti-animal language

    Prominent animal rights organization PETA is raising eyebrows with its appeal to the public to remove “speciesism” in conversation by swapping popular phrases involving animals, such as “kill two birds with one stone,” with alternatives like “feed two birds with one scone.”

    In a tweet on Wednesday, the group encouraged people to refrain from using common sayings that “trivialize” cruelty to animals.

    “Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic, or ableist language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start ‘bringing home the bagels’ instead of the bacon,” the tweet read.

    PETA also posted a graphic with the title “Stop Using Anti-Animal Language,” which lists popular expressions involving animals, along with suggested alternatives.

    For example, the organization proposed using “feed a fed horse” instead of the popular phrase “beat a dead horse” or “take the flower by the thorns” in place of “take the bull by the horns.”

    PETA’s other suggestions included “bring home the bagels” instead of “bring home the bacon” and “be the test tube” instead of “be the guinea pig.”

    The animal rights organization’s tweet was met with plenty of ridicule and scorn online after it was posted

    Source? Canadian taxpayer dollars specifically?

    PETA have been irrelevant for so long, it's like Jane Fonda when she tries to create a stir about some issue or another.

    Says the group that needlessly kills a never ending stream of cats and dogs every day.

    It's all one big contest of one upping each other, to see who the most politically correct is. There would be a prize for the winner but everyone already got participation awards.
