Important Public Service Announcement

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is still batshit insane.

An animal rights group attempted to purchase an ad in a Sun Media-owned newspaper which compares the beheading of Tim McLean Jr. to the slaughter of animals.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals officials hoped to run an ad this week in the Portage Daily Graphic that uses lines such as, “An innocent young victim’s throat is cut” and “The man with the knife shows no emotion.”

The description leads the reader to believe it’s describing McLean’s death aboard a Greyhound bus last week about 20 km west of Portage la Prairie. Only later is it revealed the ad is referring to the slaughterhouse treatment of animals.

Hey, Steve, can I say “batshit” on your blog?

Bonus Link: Speaking of Canada (which I do often, given my love of moose and toques and the final resting place of the Edmund Fitzgerald), 58% of Canucks happen to be rational.

Update: And speaking of Canada one last time, tell me that this is satire. Please?
