I could not resist this one! They just never quit!

GRAND HAVEN -- If PETA can't protect horses in Holland, the animal rights organization is going to try to hook the public on safeguarding fish in Grand Haven.

The national group on Wednesday asked the National Park Service if it could take control of the iconic Grand Haven lighthouses, where it would serve faux fish sticks in a cafe there and inform people about the alleged torment fish endure when hooked or netted.

Earlier this year, the park service declared the Grand Haven lights were available under the National Lighthouse Preservation Act, which allows the transfer of ownership to groups to preserve the beacons.

A representative for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said the light would serve as the national headquarters for its fish empathy project.

The center would display a 300-square-foot quilt that pays tribute to the billions of fish needlessly killed for their flesh or abused by anglers, PETA said. The group also would open a cafe at the lighthouses serving faux fish sticks and other vegetarian dishes.

And every visitor 12 and under will be given a free plush toy fish emblazoned with the tagline "Fish Are Friends, Not Food!"

PETA has tried unsuccessfully to snare other lighthouses, which are available to federal agencies, state and local governments, nonprofit corporations and community development organizations.

And how many PETA members are going to end up in either the channel or the lake when they tell fishers they can't fish off of a public pier?

Did you hear the whack job on Mouth 2 Mouth on Wood Radio this morning? LMAO!

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, PETA.

Oh yeah. We can chew on handfuls of elk and buffalo jerky in three different flavors with smoked chubs sticking out of our back pockets and hands full of smoked salmon filets :0

Imagine the horror! Oh the horror!

I just had me some grilled salmon tonight. Tasty stuff PETA people! You should try it!

On a side note, I say we send all of the PETA people down to the African grasslands where there is some of the most terrible, torturous carnage of the area wildlife being inflicted by some large tan animals with big furry manes. Maybe if they march in front of them in protest they will stop.

Can we hold up signs too??? "If I wasn't meant to eat meat, I wouldn't have been given sharp teeth!"

While we're at it.. let's bring fishing poles and cast off right next to the door of their little restaurant on a public pier! heh

I'm going to wear a t-shirt that has a picture of a buck in crosshairs on it and my leather jacket too :0

Our signs should read: MORE MEAT!

Good Day,

Good luck! Smart to go after a major source of income of these lakeside communities. What does Mr. Foreman say?

PETA members are Communists. I can't wait until the day they come walking into my woods telling me not to hunt. Deer won't be the only thing in my scope!

ohhhhhhh... I'm sure I can come up with a good hunting shirt! I don't have one now.. just a camo shirt that says "you can't see me" across the front. But I DO have a leather jacket!

No.. I think we need to keep with the whole theme so our signs should say...

I'm thinking of opening a booth right on the beach next to the pier to raise awareness of the mental anguish normal people suffer when trying to reason with a member of PETA. I'll serve faux PETA-member steaks, and have a tacky and ridiculously large banner to pay tribute to all the people who've lost their sanity trying to figure out why PETA can't do something worthwhile with their time. All visitors under 12 will get two action figures - a great white and a corresponding PETA member.
