PETA wants a 1,000-year-old UK village called ‘Wool’ to change their name.
You know – because “wool” promotes cruelty towards sheep.
If my eyes rolled any harder, they’d pop out of their sockets.
According to Daily Mail:
An animal rights group has been roundly mocked after suggesting the Dorset village of Wool change its name – as it currently ‘promotes cruelty to sheep’.
Instead PETA wants the 1,000 year old village to be called ‘Vegan Wool’ – to the derision of residents.
That’s so freaking dumb.
I mean, seriously?
I love animals. I’m ALL ABOUT treating them humanely, and believe there’s a special place in hell for anyone who would purposely inflict pain or torture an animal. No – I’m not a vegan or even vegetarian- but I believe in treating farm animals as humanely as possible.
But THIS kind of crap doesn’t do them ANY favors. ANY kind of positive mission they could ever have is completely drowned out by their IDIOCY when it comes to crap like this.
Elisa Allen, a director at PETA, has written to Wool Parish Council with the ‘ridiculous’ request. She said the change in name would promote kindness to sheep.
The activist said they would give a ‘cruelty-free’ woolen blanket to all 2,000 households in the village if they agree to the suggestion.
Ms Allen said that the people of ‘Vegan Wool’ would show an act of kindness to sheep if they changed the name of the village.
I’m pretty sure residents think PETA should take their blankets and SHOVE ‘EM.
Also the fact that PETA has enough money to waste on 2,000 blankets and would do so to get a town to change their name instead of – you know- ACTUALLY HELP ANIMALS is everything that’s wrong with this moronic organization.
Do you know how many homeless cats and dogs they could shelter and feed with the amount of money they’re willing to blow on blankets?
Most realize this is absolutely idiotic…
Really!!!!!?????? Good god!!!! Sheep need shearing, not at all cruel!! What would be cruel is to let the sheep ‘roast’ away in big fur coats during the summer months!!!

and some pointing out that PETA may need to read a history book:
The name “Wool” doesn’t come from the product. It comes from the Saxon word for a stream. Tel PETA to stick their idea where the sun don’t shine!

It’s got nothing to do with bloody sheep…. the name comes from an ancient word meaning ‘spring’…. as in water from the ground!….. absolute buffoonery by a group of buffoons

“Absolute buffoonery by a group of buffoons” is a good way to describe EVERYTHING PETA ever does.
