Organization handing out vegan hot dogs



    PETA Makes Case for Meatless Weenies

    Right about, oh, now, PETA members outside Dallas City Hall should be making a stand against another perceived abuse of animals — human, in this case .. maybe.

    The animal rights group will trot out two comely lasses wearing bikini-like elements made of lettuce to advance the benefits of eating vegan rather than carn-nan when it comes to hot dogs.

    The group will offer samples of vegan — read: meatless — hot dogs to prove the superiority of the plant-y goodness. Wonder if they’ll have chili-cheese dogs, too.

    According to the news release the group sent out, they’re doing this for the benefit of Dallas citizens, who Men’s Fitness magazine ranked fourth-fattest in the United States and not because the organization shamelessly seeks publicity at every turn.

    Unfair Park posted an item about all this yesterday, and it drew some fairly clever comments from readers, to wit:

    “I'll have the firm, fresh, delicious-looking lettuces featured in your menu photo, in a large bowl, with just a little oil.”

    “So if hot dogs are made from the worst parts of an animal does that mean veggie dogs are made from the worst parts of a vegetable?”

    Now, that’s pretty funny.

    Bruce Felps owns and operatesEast Dallas Times, an online community news outlet serving the White Rock Lake area. He likes his hot dogs with chili, cheese, onions, and mustard, hold the protests.
