PETA asks Turkey, TX to change its name

TURKEY, TX (KCBD) – Representatives from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are asking the town of Turkey, Texas to rename their town “Tofurky” for Thanksgiving.

PETA sent a letter to Mayor Pat Carson on Monday, offering to provide a vegan feast for the whole town.

Tofurky is described as “a savory, flavorful, ‘meaty’ vegan entree with wild-rice and bread-crumb stuffing that is 100 percent cruelty-free.”

The meal would come with “mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes (made with vegan margarine), and vegan apple pie topped with vanilla dairy-free ice cream.”

As of Monday afternoon, the Mayor’s office had “No comment.”

KCBD will have reactions from the people of Turkey, Texas on Tuesday.

Here’s the full text of PETA’s letter to the Mayor:

Dear Mayor Carson, I am writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and our more than 3 million members and supporters, including thousands in Texas, with an idea that will boost Turkey into the spotlight and promote compassion: Rename your town “Tofurky” for Thanksgiving. If you agree to adopt this moniker for just one day, we’d be happy to provide a delicious, healthy vegan holiday feast for all the town’s residents.

Tofurky is a savory, flavorful, “meaty” vegan entrée with wild-rice and bread-crumb stuffing that is 100 percent cruelty-free. In contrast, virtually all turkey meat sold in the U.S. comes from factory farms, where birds are confined by the thousands to filthy, barren sheds. They are drugged and bred to grow such unnaturally large upper bodies that their legs often become crippled under the weight. These bright and social animals are denied everything that is natural and important to them, and at the slaughterhouse, turkeys are still conscious when their throats are slit. Changing the town’s name to Tofurky will remind people around the country that we each can have a delicious, protein-packed, and satisfying Thanksgiving meal without supporting animal abuse.

PETA’s feast would feature Tofurky with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes (made with vegan margarine), and vegan apple pie topped with vanilla dairy-free ice cream.

Introducing vegan cuisine to your residents would help improve their health: A vegan diet is free of the saturated animal fats and cholesterol found in meat and dairy products, and according to the American Dietetic Association, a vegan diet reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to rename your town and give turkeys, as well as your town’s citizens, something to gobble about! Please let me know of your decision.

Sincerely yours,
Tracy Reiman
Executive Vice President

PETA asks Turkey, TX to change its name

As most of my longtime readers know, I have my own definition for PETA; People Eating Tasty Animals.

We’ve spent what? A few million years getting to the TOP of the food chain?? Tofu turkey? Really?? There’s room for ALL of God’s creatures, right next to the potatoes and gravy!

Here’s an idea some of you may find interesting; I like to place my turkey on the bottom rack of the smoker and the ham on the top rack, it keeps the turkey basted and the flavor is awesome! You might try that if you plan to cook your own ham and turkey on a real smoker.

I hope the town of Turkey, TX tell PETA what they can do with their “delicious, healthy vegan holiday feast”, maybe the OCCUPY morons need to be fed. PETA can give it to them! Tofu is hippy food anyway, isn’t it?

    Maybe they should call it Turducken: chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey. That would piss the PETA people off…

    I doing the deep fry turkey this year. Already got the ladder and pulley for it last month. Mmmmmm fried turkey.

    I would reply asking them (PETA) to change their name to “EXTINCT” :)

  4. Why yes, I AM going to have a Turducken for TURKEY Day! Had one two years ago, ordered it from CajunGrocers.com, it was fabulous, so I’ve got another one winging its way to me from Leezeeanna very shortly!

    Umm! MEAT and LOTS of it! Maybe all wrapped up in BACON! Bacon bacon bacon!

    Maybe they should change the name of the town…call it Roast Turkey, TX.

    of course they could piss off PETA & AA if they change it to ‘Wildturkey’, Tx

    Like your cooking method: “I like to place my turkey on the bottom rack of the smoker and the ham on the top rack, it keeps the turkey basted and the flavor is awesome!”

    Your cooking method should be used in all prisons where their are radical Muslims. Feed them the Turkey and the rest what ever they want. Then set back and smile.

    Yes I know tI am being downright insinsitive. Lord, forgive me and pass me some of that ham and ham basted turkey.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Dang forgot the quotation marks: in”sin”sitive

  8. I’ll be having whatever is available at the truck stop. That said, I really hope it’s a PETRO! They will have real Turkey dinner with all the fixn’s!
