PETA’s demand for changing idioms so they aren’t specieist is still fodder for comedy on social media.
This tweeted meme was the fuel.
I have to say, I sort of like “stop feeding a fed horse” as an idiom. I’m not going to abandon “beat a dead horse,” but I might start peppering in “feed a fed horse” into my vernacular.
And I’m always going to pepper my chicken. Speaking of which, PETA will never get men to stop choking the chicken, especially if they recommend “choking the tofu” as the PC alternative.
There were 47,000 replies to their meme.
Here’s a few:
I’m offended on behalf of: -Test tube babies -Overweight horses -Croissants that don’t have homes -Flowers that have been groped against their will and -People who don’t know WTF a scone is! You really screwed the pooch on this one, PETA!
Garrett @GPrestemon26Pretty sure I have the freedom of speech to say whatever I want, even if you don’t like it.Thanks for showing us, there’s more than one way to skin a cat!
