Mmmm, sea kitten

How do you like your sea kitten, fried, grilled or blackened?

P.E.T.A. is back in the news for being the stupidest group of people on the planet. They are asking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to change the name of fish to "sea kittens". I guess that would also change the agency name to the U.S. Sea Kittens and Wildlife Service.

I am continually amazed that these people apparently don't realize how stupid they seem to people that live in the real world.

I think the people who are stupid are the fishermen. Don`t they feel anything for those fish they catch and then see them struggling to escape to get back into the sea so they can breathe again?

Peta could also work on making simple vegetarian food that tastes great, so people wouldn`t be tempted to eat fish and animals.

Looky, I caught a sea kitten. Ingrid is one of the PETA idiots.

No Ingrid, the fishermen do not feel anything for the fish they catch. The fish are FOOD. Those of us who will survive for the next few generations actually eat animal flesh. You can eat all the tofu you wish, my friends who grow soybeans appreciate it. But it will never taste like, nor provide the nutrients that come from, animal flesh.

Oh, it's not a temptation. It is a normal human diet. Man cannot live by bread alone. He requires, beef, lamb, goat and sea kitten.

J.R. -- look at the Indian culture. They have a large population which is vegetarian. But I believe most of them at least drink milk. So man does not require meat to survive, but the majority of the world's population does eat meat.

I remember trying to survive in India for 2 months on their diet and I thought I would die! In fact the first time I went there I nearly did die with dysentery. Ha-ha. I do like Indian food now, but I am a born Texan and I'm fond of steak.

I agree with you about PETA though, sorry Ingrid!

Didn't Jesus eat meat. I know he at least ate fish.
If it's good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me.
