PETA On Cockroaches

PETA comes out swinging in defense of cockroaches:
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals want all Six Flags theme parks, including the one in Massachusetts, to exterminate an upcoming cockroach-eating extravaganza.

“Cockroaches have been given a bad (reputation) in our society,” said PETA spokeswoman Jackie Vergerio. “They are gentle, complex animals.”
I hope you feel guilty for waging chemical war against your little brother the cockroach now. Sometimes I think the only form of life that PETA won't defend is Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

Do I now go to hell for stomping on a cockroach?
Check out the South Park episode "Douche & Turd" (primarily about the 2004 elections) sometime.

The secondary story arc has to do with a PETA commune back in the hills that has to be seen to be believed. "She's... Ovulating..."

Headless, I'm afraid I don't watch TV. I don't miss it either. PETA does present some wonderful comic opportunities, though! If I were going to make an exception, your suggestion would be it.

Anon, I guess in PETA's book, the answer is yes. In mine, no. In my book man is in a neverending war against insects a la those 50's & 60's movies about the giant whatevers. I seem to recall the attack of the giant grasshopper, the giant tarantula, and, of course, the horde of giant ants. In the south, those don't seem so far from reality.

I will continue to stomp and spray.
Summary of the South Park PETA:

Stan (one of the four main characters) has been exiled from South Park for refusing to vote in a local election triggered by a PETA lawsuit. Stan is being hunted by gangsta rappa P.Diddy(?) and his "Vote or Die!" posse, so he holes up in the PETA commune.

The PETAns there go without bathing and crap on the ground in front of everyone, just like their beloved animals. I mean they really really "love" their animals, if you catch my drift.

They attempt to introduce Stan to bestiality/zoophilia ("She's... Ovulating...") but he backs out. At which point the PETAns cast him out, because "You don't REALLY love animals."

At this point, P.Diddy and his posse interrupt the casting-out. The head PETAn, upon seeing P.Diddy's fur-coat bling, screams "MURDERER!" and splashes the fur coat with red paint. P.Diddy and posse immediately break out Uzis and AK-47s and blow away all the PETAns in a Sam Peckinpah parody while Stan bugs out.

After which, the PETAns Beloved Animals (TM) do what animals do when presented with lots of fresh carrion; they start scavenging the bodies (munch munch munch munch munch...).

In my book man is in a neverending war against insects a la those 50's & 60's movies about the giant whatevers.
