Chickens of the World, Unite!
Chicken Rights for All.
(c)Copyright 1988, Robert J. Hustwit
It was disturbing news: Chicken had become the most eaten meat in the
country--passing beef for the first time.
All those poor chickens dying.
I was in a quandary. Even though the chickens didn't know they had them,
their rights were being violated at an astonishing rate.
I had already registered my intention to at least frown on anyone I caught
wearing a chicken coat. Of course, I had the obligatory abhorrence to
using chickens in laboratory experiments. But to grow them, kill them and
then eat them, well, that was just too barbaric for words.
I mean, if you buy a chicken coat, at least you have something you can use
for years without ever killing another chicken. If you use a chicken in
laboratory research, there is at least the chance of helping people like
you and me survive in the future, and maybe then we could stop using
chickens in these experiments.
Unless he or she is really perverted (you know who you are) no one would
feel pleasure at the suffering and pain of a chicken. And yet these same
caring people lust over the taste of a properly cooked breast of the bird.
They gladly breed chicken for flavor and size. They even use (dare I say
it?) Genetic Engineering.
Chickens are killed wantonly, with no regard for chicken traditions or
culture. They are not even offered the Last Rites (not to be confused with
their Chicken Rights).
Over 500 million chickens a year are slaughtered. At first I thought it
was an attempt at chicken genocide by the Chicken Cartel, but no, there are
more chickens now than ever before. You'd think they would be an
endangered species by now. I confess I don't know why they are being bred
in such numbers, killed in such numbers, but I intend to find out.
In the meantime, I want to do something about this travesty of justice. I
am issuing a call for Animal Rights activists everywhere to unite. Forget
about fur! All of the fur coats in the world laid end to end couldn't
cover one tenth of the eggs of the yet-to-be-born chickens (never mind the
born-againers). Forget about animals in laboratories: more chickens are
killed and eaten in one day than all the laboratory animals that ever
Chickens are being eaten, eaten, do you hear me?
If you really want to do something about Animal Rights, start with the
chicken. Killing a chicken just to eat it, especially when there is so
much corn and wheat and soya that we could be eating, is too cruel for
words. It violates the basic rights of every chicken.
Remember, Today the Chicken...Tomorrow the World.
I have to go now. We're eating out tonight, the restaurant's owned by a
military man. I hope to get my point across to him. I've never been to
this restaurant before, Major something, or is it Colonel somebody? I
can't remember, but if anything exciting happens, I'll let you know.
