“The Big Chicken”

PETA Staffer Legally Changes His Name to KentuckyFriedCruelty.com

A 19-year-old PETA staffer has legally changed his name to KentuckyFriedCruelty.com.

Chris Garnett, youth outreach coordinator for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said he changed his name in support of the group’s anti-KFC campaign.

“People don’t believe me at first when I tell them my name, but it never fails to spark a discussion,” Garnett, er, KentuckyFriendCruelty.com, said in a statement. “Many vow to boycott KFC after I explain the company’s indifference to cruelty to animals.”

Never fails to spark a discussion? My guess is that most people yawn and move on. And while we’re at it, “youth outreach coordinator”??? Is this an animal rights organization or a church???

    “Is this an animal rights organization or a church”

    A little bit of both. Both are based on unprovable assumptions and are believed with unshakable dogmatism.

  2. Mister Mustard says:

    pffft. they should stick to killing animals kidnapped from shelters. it may be immoral, unethical, and probably illegal, but at least it gets people thinking. unlike this stupid-assed move.

    i hope that, unlike a tattoo, the dimwit can have this removed at a later date.

  3. RTaylor says:

    PETA overlooks the fact that humans are animals. I’m too old to deal with idealist. That’s a game for the young.

  4. Actually John its not a church or an animal rights organization, but in fact a cult that gets tax-breaks from our government. Check out the episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit! where they look at PETA. It’s a cult that funds arsonists and worse.

  6. frank kramer says:

    Of course, Daniel, Peta activists are thieves, rapists and arsonists.
    Everyone who dares to have any objections to the way the big corporations in the USA are doing thieir busines is a criminal.
    Dream on…
    I hope for you that God thinks the same way about the people who break the then commandments every day as you.

  7. Steve Newlin says:

    “Everyone who dares to have any objections to the way the big corporations in the USA are doing thieir busines is a criminal.”

    They’re not objecting to the way big corporations operate. They are objecting to EVERYONE who is not on their side. If you eat meat, they’re against you. If you own a pet. They’re against you. If you drive a car, they’re against you.

    If they were merely against large corporations, I think they’d get a lot more support.

    And if there are any PETA-heads reading this: Why can I kill a virus but NOT a dog?! Please answer that!

  8. Incognito says:

    I’d have to agree with Daniel Frank. They have all types of hypocrites in Peta.

    My faviorite was the guy who was a doctor and saying that we shouldn’t use animals for research, yet the very procedures he uses to save lives were perfected on animals.

  9. frank kramer says:

    I am sorry if I have offended you, in any way.
    I just wanted to make my point that i am not happy with the fact that a person who is concerned with animal cruelty is immediatly put down as an arsonist.

    I am not a Peta head, but tho answer your questions. Viruses can be considered as parasites, which will kill you. dogs won’t kill you. (only if they are trained to)

  10. frank kramer says:

    Sorry didn’t read your comment on time incognito.
    If there are all sorts of hypocrites in Peta USA then it is a bad organisation. (I just don’t know anough about Peta USA)

    I just don’t like it when people who are fighting for animal rights, which in my view is a good thing, are called criminals.

  11. Steve Newlin says:

    “Viruses can be considered as parasites, which will kill you.”

    So, since tigers can kill you, they have no rights?! Is that the standard PETA uses?!

  12. frank kramer says:

    tigers have no intention to kill anyone unless they need it for food. tigers don’t kill people, unless tpeople threathen their cups.
    parasites intentions are to kill everyone i order to survive.

    But you must read please, this is just my personal opinion, i don’t implie thta this is the opinion of Peta

  13. Mike says:

    most of the animal rights people i know also insist on spaying and nuetering every dog and cat they run across. i can think of nothing more hypocritical than to deny any animal, that which should be its most fundamental right — the right to reproduce.

  14. Dave Drews says:

    Assuming you’re not be facitious, Mike, I also assume you’re willing to take in every unwanted dog and cat that’s born from all the unspayed and unnuetered animals that would have running around. Can’t have unfettered reproduction without accepting the consequences. Hmmm…. I guess that also means I feel that all the antiabortion and anti contraception people should be willing to pay for and care for unwanted human babies that their anti activities result in. At least until they’ve gone through college, of course. Only seems fair and just in order to not deny their parents their right to reproduce at will.

  15. Tallwookie says:

    I like the fact that the guy who changed his name thinks that they are “torturing” the chickens… Hello!! We EAT those animals, what more, we eat them dead. Does this guy ask himself if the farmer “tortured” the carrots when they were ripped out of the ground? I sort of doubt it.

  16. Dave Drews says:

    You obviously never saw Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.

  17. Mike says:

    Cats and dogs aren’t humans, so you can leave your silly comparison at the door.

    There is no consequence to humans because of animal over-population other than it provides an inconvenience to us. And all the fools who pretend to be so altruistic and claim they’re doing it because they care about them are being hypocrites.

    The reason why most animals produce such large litters and as often as they do is because nature doesn’t expect them all to survive. That is the reality of how they have evolved. So, if there are dead cats laying in the street, I could care less until it turns into an inconvenience for me. This is exactly why they make a point of allowing extended hunting seasons for dear and other species which tend to become overpopulated… because they cause a loss of property and life to humans; not because we are so worried about the poor deer starving in the cold winter.

  18. frank kramer says:

    Mike, you are a good observer.
    Of course, the hunters are not hunting because of the fact they care about animals.
    They only care about killing.
    If they really cared cared about animals, they would have used an uzi or another machinegun; that would kill the animal instantly.

    Instead they are using shotguns or rifles to ‘give the animal a chance’ ;like the animals has really got a chance against a bullet which travels with the speed of sound.
    They just like killing.

  19. Steve Newlin says:

    frank kramer, first you HONESTLY believe that virii have intent?!

    Second, so intent is the standard. All life has rights EXCEPT that life that has intent, which include virii and humans. So, accepting your arguments, sheep have rights, humans don’t. Is that the standard PETA uses?!

  20. Sounds the Alarm says:

    PETA kills animals. Its a well know dirty secret that they “euthanize” homeless animals without bothering to look for homes for them, meanwhile they target and criticize gov orgs that do the same thing.

    PETA is also a terrorist organization that supports ALF and advocates violence toward humans and wants an end to all medical research that uses animal models. I once had an ALF (and PETA) member tell me that 1000s of human babies should die before one mouse is used for science and people who have medical conditions that were cured or mediated because of animal research should all “have their lives forfeit” for the animal “holocaust” we somehow caused. After all we were “genetically deficient” anyway. BTW one of the high level PETA managers is a diabetic. Of course she hasn’t seen fit to off HERSELF yet.

    In short PETA sucks and people who support PETA are the basest example of stupidity and hypocrisy (such as scankbags like Courtney Love). In short PETA and people who support PETA = terrorist assholes.

    There was a great Bullshit! episode on PETA last year. It should be mandatory viewing for all children so they can know what true stupidity and evil really are.

  21. Arguing about PETA’s standards when it comes to animals is stupid to begin with. Check here for details why: http://www.petakillsanimals.com

    frank kramer: I fail to see why the bullets fired from an uzi or other “machinegun” (might want to check your gun laws in regards to automatic weapons too) are any more likely to kill an animal instantly than a rifle. Rifles are not used to give the animals a chance. A good hunter fires with deadly accuracy and kills animals in a single shot. Using an uzi would not only be dangerous, but it would also be an ineffective way to kill an animal quickly and with minimal pain, likely spraying it with bullets so it can die of blood loss, shock, and cardiac arrest. That’d feel just fantastic I’m sure.

    “And if there are any PETA-heads reading this: Why can I kill a virus but NOT a dog?! Please answer that!”

    I’m not a PETA head and have a very easy answer for this question. I like dogs and I don’t like virii. I don’t think I’ll ever need to reevaluate this view until dogs and virii learn how to breed forcing me into a difficult moral dilemna.

  22. Thomas says:


    PETA is one of the most hypocritical organizations ever conceived. They purport the ethical treatment of all cute animals excluding humans that disagree with them. They have no problem throwing ethics out the window for dissenters.

    > i am not happy with the fact that a person who is concerned
    > with animal cruelty is immediatly put down as an arsonist.

    The reason you are ridiculed is due to your use of the phrase “animal cruelty.” Which animals? What defines cruelty? There is nothing crueler than nature where animals are regularly eaten alive. What about insects or bacteria?

    > Viruses can be considered as parasites, which will kill
    > you. dogs won’t kill you.

    Viruses are not generally considered alive. However, bacteria are considered alive and bring up the same quandary. What about benign bacteria? Is use of anti-bacterial soap that kills millions of benign bacteria considered cruel?

    > tigers have no intention to kill anyone unless they need it
    > for food.

    So how is killing chickens for our food any different? If a person goes on a chicken killing rampage they would probably be considered cruel by most courts. A person killing chickens for food, ala KFC, would not.
