Pet Shop or Rescue Shelter Boys?

Ever noticed how do-gooders seem to think that just because they think something is a good cause, then everyone else should think so. Well there is a group called People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) that no-one will have heard of, they are nutters that believe ALL animals should have equal rights to humans.

Well their latest mad idea is that 80s pop group The Pet Shop Boys, who have been touring again, should change their name to a more 'creature friendly name'. They suggested the band should re-name themselves, 'Rescue Shelter Boys'.

"Most dogs and cats sold in pet shops are sourced from profit-hungry breeders who may have bred them in cramped, filthy conditions.  For every bird who reaches a pet shop, three others have died during capture, confinement and transportation. Hamsters, mice and other rodents are often bred by the pet shops themselves, leading to inbreeding, genetic weaknesses, physical deformities and behavioral disorders. By agreeing to change your name to the Rescue Shelter Boys, you would help raise awareness about the cruelty involved in the pet trade and encourage your millions of fans to consider giving a home to an abandoned or unwanted animal from an animal shelter. So, what do you say?"

Yawn...........what a bunch of dorks. As I am sure you can imagine, PSB told them to jog on!
