An animal rights group wants organizers of Pennsylvania's Groundhog Day festival to replace Punxsutawney Phil with a robotic stand-in. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it's unfair to keep the animal in captivity and subject him to the huge crowds and bright lights that accompany tens of thousands of revelers each Feb.

What about all these animals in the wild, lets euthanize all wild animals so they won't suffer winter hunger, vehicle collisions, and other disasterous conditions. We will then replace them with robotic ones that don't feel. The production of such things will really jumpstart the economy, and the meat from all the euthanized animals can be used to feed Haitians, its a win win.

I think we should start eating humans that are mute. Do you tink PETA would "speak" for them? Probably not.
