At least in terms of comedy there is no better country on the face of this planet to live than these God-blessed united states of America.
Please find me other country that has an organization like PETA that would protest our local Pike Place fish throwers for tossing fish "corpses used as toys" and then offer to send them rubber replacement fish.
Can you dig that?!
The fish throwers have been invited to do a demonstration for a veternarian conference in Seattle. I think the absolute best part is that PETA is threatening to expose any veternarian in their hometown if they participate in this conference where dead bodies are being tossed around like toys. That's why it's a joke--they can't possibly believe they are getting any reaction other than laughs, can they?
