PETA To Shut Down Baseball & NASA

Apparently, People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has had enough with bird destruction. While these incidents took place in the past, PETA has decided that the lives of too many birds are, in fact, imperiled by the quest for knowledge and entertainment. As such, PETA is calling for an outright ban on all space exploration and the playing of baseball on all levels.

Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA, had this to say: “Randy Johnson may be a pus-throwing fastballer who is now trying to hold it together in the twilight of his career. But while birds are in jeopardy, we must be vigilant. Who knows when the next phenom will obliterate an innocent pigeon? No. Baseball must stop. And NASA is not any better. How can a government funded endeavor purport to increase knowledge while cavalierly slaughtering innocent animals and then incinerate them in rocket exhaust. We fund government. We’ll stop this inhumanity.”

NSFW Boob Piercing No Go For TSA

Apparently, belly rings are not a threat to airline safety. Nipple rings are, however. At least in Texas. In another case of TSA making shit up as they go along, the woman, Mandi Hamlin, said she heard male TSA agents snickering as she took out the ring. She was scanned again and was allowed to board even though she still was wearing a belly button ring.
