PETA proposes robotic groundhog for Pa. festival

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. An animal rights group wants organizers of Pennsylvania's Groundhog Day festival to replace Punxsutawney Phil with a robotic stand-in.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it's unfair to keep the animal in captivity and subject him to the huge crowds and bright lights that accompany tens of thousands of revelers each Feb. 2 in Punxsutawney, a tiny borough about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. PETA is suggesting the use of an animatronic model.

But William Deeley, president of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, says the animal is "being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania." The groundhog is kept in a climate-controlled environment and is inspected annually by the state Department of Agriculture.

Deeley says PETA isn't interested in Phil from Feb. 2 on, and is looking for publicity.

PETA... People Eating Tasty Animals

The other PETA people need to get a life, a grip, a job and a sense of humor for God's sake!

One year at a concert PETA was harassing the people at a cheesesteak stand and throwing flyers at them. My friend and I just so happened to be in that line. I order my sub and turn to eat, I hear my friend order five. I think I know what is coming, but I'm not sure. Yep, I was right. He threw four of the five at the PETA protesters hitting them dead on and showering them with meat. Bad things happen to people who try to force their opinions on others.

Well, the Jehova's witness people used to come pester me to buy their shit or join their club or whatever every week.







...until they came one day when I was target shooting and I approached them with a 1911 on my hip and an AR-15 on my shoulder. (I used to live out in the sticks)
