You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred

I refuse to let this become a PETA-outrage-of-the-week site. However...
Portland, Ore. — Dressed in a showgirl-style chicken costume—complete with a faux-feather headdress—waving signs reading, "KFC Tortures Chicks," and, "Boycott KFC," and showing shocking undercover video footage of abused chickens, PETA’s sexy "Chickette," along with a giant "chicken," will protest KFC’s cruel treatment of chickens at a Portland KFC tomorrow. The protest is part of an international campaign launched by PETA after nearly two years of failed negotiations with KFC:

Date: Monday, February 23
Time: 12 noon
Place: KFC, 707 N.E. Weidler St.
Oh, please, Portland newspaper, television, someone, please send a photographer to cover this...!

(When is someone going to organize a protest of PETA's cruel treatment of its female volunteers? First you strip 'em to their underwear and put 'em in a cage on main street, then you put 'em on leashes at dog shows, and now you send 'em to KFC in showgirl chicken suits. Oh, the humanity! Where stands N.O.W. on this issue? "PETA Exploits Chicks!" Er, I mean, "...Women!")

LATER: Not to mention PETA's "Sexiest Vegetarians":

Yes, they're wearing lettuce. Make up your own joke about salad dressing. I'm assuming the shoes aren't leather.
