Ok it is story time! Yeah! This is my first post here, so I will do my best to entertain. A few weeks ago I had the grand opportunity to interact with a PETA supporter. A situation that is always good for some fun. I noticed this young, college aged girl was wearing a blue wrist band that proclaimed her support for the tax exempt, terrorist organization while I was drawing her blood at the lab I work at. Since I was at work I could not just beat her about the head with raw meat like I often do with PETA supporters.
I had to employ a bit more tact or risk loosing my source of income. (how I wish I had seen the Peta booth at the NIN show) So with a devious grin I asked her if she was a vegan right before I poked her. She gave me a puzzled look and promptly replied "no, why do you ask". I waited until I had removed the needle from her arm before I continued. "well according to the dogma of PETA member and the fact that you are wearing one of their wristbands, I would assume that you were vegan", I said as I placed the contaminated needle into it's proper receptical. "Well, I...um...I just don't like fur, I it is not an all or nothing kind of thing." she said with the trepidation of a deer in headlights. "Oh, I see" I said, halfway considerig letting her off at that. But my dark side got the best of me and I had to push forward. So I baited her with a question. "So how much did you pay for that wristband...a buck or two" I implored with an impish grin spreading from ear to ear. Without waiting for a response I continued on by asking her if she knows who Rodney Coronado is. "um...no" she replied while inching towards the door. "Well my dear, Rodney Coronado is a man who firebombs medical laboratories in the name of animal rights. And PETA pays his legal bills." "Oh...I didn't know that" she bashfully replied. "Do you know that this is a medical laboratory?"
