PETA tells kids not to eat turkey

How fast a year has passed.
It seems just like yesterday, as Thanksgiving approached, that the PETA ads raised their ugly heads, trying to make us feel guilty about eating turkey.
Yes, it's that time again.
In an ad released, PETA asks kids, “If you wouldn’t eat your dog, why eat a turkey?” 

Along with these silly ads, PETA also sent a letter Monday to the mayor of the tiny town of Turkey, Texas (population 421 in the 2010 census), asking him to change the town’s name to “Tofurky” for Thanksgiving Day. In exchange, PETA promises to provide a “healthy, vegan holiday feast for all the town’s residents.”
The letter details the horrors faced by farm-raised turkeys, and ends trying to attractively describe a Tofurky meal.

“PETA's feast would feature Tofurky with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes (made with vegan margarine), and vegan apple pie topped with vanilla dairy-free ice cream.”

City officials have rejected the proposal.

If the turkey-dog were actually an animal, we would prefer eating it to a Tofurky meal.
Tofurkey, it's dreadful, just look at it, Haggis looks more appealing.

By the way, didn't PETA try to convince kids not eat fish by calling fish 'seakittens'? 
How's that working out?
