The Aboslute Best Responses to PETA Picking A Fight Over Bacon
PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is an organization that has been around for a long time. PETA's mission is to be the largest animal rights organization in the world and surely no organization has a louder or more well-known reputation. One of PETA's goals seen and spoken of frequently is to end the consumption of animals and animal-based products and that has led to some impressive advertisements and outlandish battles on the Internet. Sometimes, as is so easy to do when the Internet is so widely used, PETA opens a can of worms with well-meaning intentions that totally backfire.
Such was the case in late June of this year when PETA asked Twitter to present an argument for eating bacon.
Bacon, of all things.
The responses have been far and wide and most of them have been utterly hysterical. In fact, here are the ABSOLUTE BEST responses PETA received from their passive-aggressive call to arms.
Present your best argument for eating bacon.— PETA (@peta) June 28, 2017
And so it begins...
Bacon is a much-beloved food to young and old so it was only a matter of moments before the responses rolled in from literally everyone, even those who don't eat bacon and even politicians. Nobody could resist the chance to take a pro-bacon jab at PETA.
In fact, Ben Shapiro does not eat bacon but he couldn't resist this sizzle of a burn:
It pisses you off. https://t.co/xO9V9Kuzq1— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) June 29, 2017
Of course, sometimes words are not enough. As response after response rolled in with the perfect video responses to PETA.
(I may or may not be drooling just looking at this video evidence.)
The Blaze's Matt Walsh retorted back to PETA on Twitter the tough question:
What else are you supposed to do with a pig? https://t.co/U7r4ltucIo— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) June 29, 2017
Then of course Ben MCDonald continued with a slew of media responses that we just cannot get enough of:
One of my absolute favorites is this one sent by USA Today's Michael Schwab. Check it out on the next page!
Seriously flawless, Michael.
Even Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah couldn't resist joining in.
An when a very angry vegan told the bacon-loving Senator, "I hope you choke on it." He eloquently replied in true bacon-beloved fashion:
There are worse ways to go. 🥓https://t.co/8EOoFyliIA— Senator Hatch Office (@senorrinhatch) June 29, 2017
Don't forget, there were also some logical arguments presented:
Because no one wants an "LT" sandwich.— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) June 29, 2017
(Though I'm sure somewhere in there are some responses that declare otherwise... but they're wrong.)
And of course further sentiments that annoying and pissing off PETA is just too much fun to pass up! Especially when BACON is involved.
Honestly, at this point, beyond the fact that it tastes good, it's to annoy you.— (((Jason Rantz))) (@jasonrantz) June 29, 2017
And no Twitter-PETA fight would be complete without a well-thought out meme.
I'm going to go with the fact that bacon not only tastes great, but it smells like the heavens opening up to get you through the day. pic.twitter.com/SJaIaPpPq4— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) June 29, 2017
But hey, at the end of the day, whatever you enjoy eating is all that really matters. If you don't dig some bacon, don't eat some bacon. If you do dig some bacon, well, we're sure you're chalked full of your own responses to PETA's call to arms.
Speaking of bacon, have a look at these texts between a Muslim teen and her dad. A racist and ignorant comment triggered the whole conversation.
