PETA Wants Honey Boo Boo Clan To Go Vegan! When Pigs Fly...

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Honey Boo Boo`s pet chicken, which the seven-year-old chose to name Nugget, " has caught the attention of PETA.

In an open letter to the TLC star, whose real name is Alana Thompson, the animal rights organization suggests she rename her new feathered friend  `Not a Nugget` in order to  `let your fans know that they should be nice to chickens by not eating them.`"

Honey Boo Boo Child loves chicken nuggets; it`s not surprising that she named her new pet chicken "Nugget." But it may not be the best choice for a name; it will only remind her family that her pet can easily be turned into delicious nuggets.

In a bid to convince the Honey Boo Boo family to go vegan, PETA sent the redneck family a free sample of veggie-chicken nuggets.

A rose by any other name... It doesn`t matter if Alana`s pet chicken is named "Nugget", "Not a Nugget" or "Engelbert Humperdinck", my guess is that it`s only a matter of time before Mama eats it.

The fine young ladies of the Bunny Ranch will become nuns before the infamous reality family becomes vegetarians.

This country family doesn`t always dine on meat, they consume sketti by the tub, and cheese balls by the barrel, but nothing makes them happier than dining on piping hot roadkill.

When Honey Boo Boo went to a barbecue joint, the precocious child ordered chicken, barbeque and ribs, and Mama told her that all her sides couldn`t be meat. "I know, but I get two sides, why can`t my sides be meat?" she enquired. You can`t argue with that kind of logic, and you will never turn a girl who loves meat so much into a vegan or vegetarian.

When will the Honey Boo Boo family go vegan? When pigs fly out of Mama`s rear end. If a pig did escape out of Mama`s butt, before you could say "Yummy roadkill", Mama would have said a blessing, killed the pig and plopped it into a giant deep fryer. She wouldn`t have wasted any time cleaning the porker.
