PETA Demands Roadside Memorial for Fish That Died in Traffic Accident

Just when you thought animal rights kooks could not possibly push their moonbattery any further into absurdity:

An Irvine resident is requesting that the city install a sign to memorialize the hundreds of fish killed in a traffic crash in early October as they were being taken to Irvine Ranch Market.

In the letter, Dina Kourda, on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, asks the city’s street maintenance superintendent to place the sign at the site of the crash on Walnut and Yale avenues.

The sign would read, “In memory of hundreds of fish who suffered and died at this spot,” to remind tractor-trailer drivers of their responsibility to the animals who are “hauled to their deaths every day,” according to the letter provided by PETA.

Once again moonbats tug at our heartstrings. From the letter:

“Research tells us that fish use tools, tell time, sing, and have impressive long-term memories and complex social structures, yet fish used for food are routinely crushed, impaled, cut open, and gutted, all while still conscious. Sparing them from being tossed from a speeding truck and slowly dying from injuries and suffocation seems the least that we can do.”

Maybe consciousness can be raised even further if one of these tool-using fish gets on a laptop and writes a book entitled, Bury My Heart at Walnut and Yale Avenues.

But why are we calling them fish? I thought they had been renamed sea kittens.

We need a law mandating seatbelts for sea kittens.

    If little Ms. Moron would just proclaim they were homosexual fish the accident would have been an immediate hate crime and a memorial would be ‘spontaneous’.

    Maybe liberals should be processed and canned instead

    We managed to remove 55lbs of delicious King Sea Kittens from the Straight of Georgia a couple of years ago. Absolutely YUMMMMMY!!!

    I hold a memorial every month on my plate with a little Pacific Salmon Sea Kitten. The ritual usually involves dill weed, garlic salt and lemon slices. The funeral pyre is on my grill! Looking forward to Dungeness crab funeral season soon too! 2 items that keep me here in California :).

  6. Sinister66 says:

    I have a few hundred pounds of salmon and halibut in my freezer out in my garage. These people are more then welcome to erect a planter, preferably block about 40l’x30w”x24h” high, with some rose bushes along the west side of the garage if it make them feel better.

  7. Anon-Y-Mouse says:

    After pulling a sea-kitten out of the water with a barbed hook in it’s lips, I’ve generally “impaled, cut open, and gutted, all while still conscious” as my normal routine.

    I may try “auto-cleaning” them next time (i.e. letting a moving vehicle do all the work). Thanks, PETA…I wouldn’t have thought of that without you!

    Something smells fishy?

    Oh it’s Dina Kourda, could you please move downwind.

    Thanks

    I’d like to suggest a memorial design here:

    Okay, so everyone stops eating animals. How long do you suppose it would be before we started seeing signs saying “Thanksgiving if murder on carrots”? I mean come on, these morons have to stay employed.

    “Research tells us that fish use tools, tell time, sing, and have impressive long-term memories and complex social structures…”

    WOW! – fish are HIGHER on the evolutionary scale than lunatic-left d-cRAT socialists !!!!!!!! Who knew?

  12. Alxandro says:

    Probably makes more sense to simply rename the street to Tartar Sauce Lane.

  13. Joe Mama says:

    I weep for the mosquitoes on her front bumper. Stop the slaughter.

  14. Clink says:

    Oh, the huge manatee.

  15. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    I may consider a burial service for the next worm I impale on a hook at mt favorite fishing hole.
    Wait a minute……

  16. KHarn says:

    They used to call fish “brain food”. The shmucks in the artical obviously don’t eat fish.

    Coincidence? You decide.

  17. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    KHarn
    Still others used to call the liberal brain “fish food”

  18. StanInTexas says:

    I’ll bet the driver did that on porpoise.

    “We need a law mandating seatbelts for sea kittens.”

    And airbags. Don’t forget the airbags.

  20. Anon-Y-Mouse says:

    Ghost, I literally laughed out loud. That was priceless.

  21. Marmo says:

    Golly, what do we do about the fish that kill and eat other fish? Should we initiate programs to teach them to be vegetarians?

  22. 762x51 says:

    PETA should check out all the bugs on my windshield. Now that would be a lot of roadside memorials.

    Perhaps it would be simpler, and less expensive, if we just put the PETA members in a nice common grave and erect ONE memorial?

    marmo – The technology isn’t quite ready for a government program yet but a nice fat taxpayer funded research grant would be perfect.

    It may be too late. There is now a growing vegetable rights movement.

    But can they drive a car?

    Attention PETA
    Let me clue you in on a little secret……WE REALLY DON’T GIVE A FLYING F**K!!!
    Really we (a very,very,very large majority)just laugh at you….and ogle the really hot looking chickies you get to strut around buck ass nekid in your protests,it doesn’t change our minds any but hey a little eye candy don’t hurt.

  27. katiep says:

    I love fish. I’ve raised fish. I even had some (a clown and a grouper) trained to even eat out of my hand.

    BUT THIS IS INSANE.

    Yes, they do have personalities and use tools; I kept some for over 10 years, and it’s true- BUT THEY’RE ANIMALS. A-N-I-M-A-L-S. And the ones who aren’t pets are darn tasty.

    PETA members aren’t fish-lovers. I’M a fish-lover. They’re just insane (and obnoxious.)

  28. Son of Taz says:

    Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and distributed them to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate as much as they wanted.John 6

  29. Stephan The Original says:

    This thread gets my vote for one of the funniest ever on mb.

    Btw, don’t forget this, Son of Taz:

    Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. (John 21:10-13)

    I demand a memorial for the 153 Sea Kittens down by the Sea Kittens sanctuary of Galilee.

    “Research tells us that fish use tools, tell time, sing, and have impressive long-term memories and complex social structures, yet fish used for food are routinely crushed, impaled, cut open, and gutted, all while still conscious.”

    Apparently PETA gets its information from “The Little Mermaid” and “Finding Nemo”.

  31. Judith M. says:

    Just out of curiousity, what sort of a “market” were these sea kittens in transit to when they met their untimely demise? If it’s the kind I’m imagining, this whole thing seems a little bit like grieving the fact that a death row inmate was killed slipping on a banana peel on his way to the chair.

  32. Tom B says:

    @Judith M
    Would the grieving be for the death row inmate or for the banana?
