These PETA nuts are getting out of hand! Whether you believe in creation or evolution, man has been eating fish since DAY 1! Christ "served" fish to the masses. And, if you believe man evolved from fish, he had to eat his "ancestors" to survive. So, either way, fish have been in man's diet from the beginning.

Nature isn't a Disney movie. Fish, animals, birds, insects, bacteria, etc. all eat each other. There is nothing wrong with man being part of this NATURAL cycle.

PETA is wrong: I would have no objections to throwing dead cats, either.

We are becoming way too PC. PETA, please find another cause to complain about. Thank you.

And yes, I am against throwing kittens and puppies around.

I don't have any objection to things to be thrown around, except when they're live grenades.

This is pretty silly - and I'm an animal lover. If PETA really wants to do something for live fish, try getting the plastic out of the oceans - these are corpses we're talking about at the market.

In honor of this article, I think I will have a double quarter pounder with bacon.

Or maybe a nice veal chop.

Hey PETA! I love animals. I voted for Obama. But why don't you nuts all go play with some Polar Bears? Maybe frolic with a hungry shark? Hug a King Cobra? Offer some trail mix to a lion? Whatever. Just shut up for once and get a real life.

PETA is a domestic terror organization with the explicit complicity of the news media. If the media stopped giving them attention, they would die just like an animal without oxygen.

I'd have no problem throwing puppies and kittens around if I ate puppies and kittens...I don't though. I have no problem stomping on a caterpillar in my basement or killing a mouse with a mousetrap or shooting a gopher in my backyard, at least these animals are getting put to good use after being killed.

I'm going to start a group PETP...people for the ethical treatment of plants. How dare these people ignore the feelings of plants to cut them up and eat them.

And we have a winner !!!! The most egregeous waste of taxpayer money goes to...PETA. Your non-profit status should be revoked because of this. People are horrible. I'll grant you that. But failing to consider the "respect" we owe dead fish is hardly on anyone's list of human shortcomings. You guys are in a league of your own for "just being wankers".

I propose that we have a contest to see who can throw a PETA member the farthest. With nobody catching.
