Animal Rights group PETA has designed a gory cooking videogame that’s definitely not for vegetarians, because it’s intended to shame the Cooking Mama videogame series which the group’s claimed is too meat focused.

PeTA is stupid
Off to the store to buy my nice, fat turkey, and fixin's to make dressing. (I don't do stuffing; too uneven cooking and not enough room in the bird!)
Bet web-game for... days
Well it made a change from defending forts or sending stick-men to their deaths. Who'd they get to make it? The folk behind Happy Tree Friends?
Awesome until the sickening last "chapter".
A bunch of rich nut jobs. The rather you strave to death than to eat meat.
You will be shamed by this game into making a tofu-turkey but after sampling the disgusting taste of a tofu-turkey, the game will become very handy indeed in instructing you in how to dispatch and prepare a real and real tasting turkey.
Makes me hungry...
Pass me some tasty PETA members. I mean, while turkeys might be bright and have differing personalities, PETA consistently shows us they belong down at the bottom of the food chain with yeast and bacteria. And at least those two provide us with tasty beverages and cooking supplies.
Honestly, any group that thinks the American Humane Society is filled with animal-hating miscreants and has members who feel that eating yeast is animal abuse is obviously of negligible sentience.
Random thoughts: (1) Would be funny if it became more popular than the original game. (2) If you've already killed the turkey, what's the point switching to tofu? (3) Ever had Tofurky? Think THX 1138. (4) "The best thing we can do for the environment is kill ourselves". Ok, let's say I agree. You first.
A game fit for a Klingon.
Especially as you don't actually get to cook the thing.
Now hand me that plate or gagh - I'm feeling peckish.
so where is it?
I want to download a copy and play it. i reckon it'll be a hit in our office.
So these PETA people are perfectly prepared to murder and torture poor innocent plants for their Thanksgiving Dinner? Tomatoes have feelings too, you bastards! They're just kingdomists...
That was the best fun Ive had in ages. I mean seriously......plucking the feathers.....scalding live birds.....ripping out their internal organs (and then cooking them)....
AWESOME even Fallotu 3 has nothing on it....now when do we get a Cooking PETA game?
/mines the one with the flayed PETA skin in the pockets.
So after going to all the effort to prepare the turkey, she decides not to eat it? I would have thought PETA would consider that worse than eating turkeys.
Oh dear, more petards...
I think it says it all nicely.
i am glad they have such a worth while campaign to fight... i mean i cannot think of anything else important at the moment in world can you?
i mean, that game is terrible...
what a bunch of tossers, go and do something with your life... i bet they all have iPhones as well
Paris - cos she is a waste of time as well....
Politicians tell me that playing Kaboom will turn me into a terrorist and that Billy Suicide will make me top myself. Logically, Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals must make me want to hack up animals. I think the only thing that’s saved me is not being a mother.
Gotta love the veg propaganda machine
"...suffering endured by turkeys and other animals who are killed for food..."
That's just nature. I don't see them petitioning lions to stop eating zebras.
Anyway, there are some of us who have no other option as we're unable to synthesize some of the proteins that can only be found in meat.
Why is it...
That whenever I here PETA do something like that, I get a craving for some Bacon?
Mines the one with the foil wrapped sarnies in the pocket thanks.
The whole organisation disgusts me. I used to support them for some of their animal rights causes, but recently in the past few years they have turned into a screaming evil and immoral crowd of shits.
Peta. People Eat Tasty Meat.
They missed the point....
Mainly because, as the article says, the game is actually quite fun to play. In fact, in a quite irresponsible move, PETA have done exactly what game developers wish they wouldn't, and tried to tie a video game to reality. I guess at least when I'm caught sacrificing turkeys now I can claim that PETA made me do it with their gory video game.
I notice that among the facts they give about turkey "murder", they fail to mention that tofu tastes like a sweaty asshole.....
Cue vegetarians telling me that I'm wrong, and tofu doesn't taste like a bum crack.
PETA fights Mama's bloodlust with a fun and even more gorey game?
I found the tofu endgame bland and distasteful, no surprises there then!
The turkey part was actually quite fun although I'm not sure I drip with blood while plucking feathers or cracking eggs. I didn't think PETA was against egg eating?
Also, I was reminded of the PETA southpark episode as soon as mama started loving animals and was informed that people living with turkeys in sanctuaries report they have varying tastes in music.
Can we have a version where you first need to kill the bugger with a shotgun, pick all led out and then start cooking? also don't forget to feed all internal organs to evil dogs. That would be cool. Come on PETA!
Penguin bacause... you know PENGUIN instead of Turkey!!!
Thanks PETA (& The Reg)
Its hard to find a flash game I can play at work....
It was a lot of fun till the TOFU then i had to quit....
final score: 531
yup, i'm a vegetarian.
what's your score?
I want this!
But that's actually fun.... Probably wrong way to go about it though PETA, maybe you should stick to terrorism.
I wonder if they remembered to license the name, graphics et. al.
I'm sure that Messrs Sue, Grabbit and Runne could do quite well out of this. I'm not sure what sort of assets PETA have though, they could be flogging a dead horse here...........(oops).
People Eating Tasty Animals
Not bad, I made it to 950-odd points, plenty meaner than mama, but the tofu was too gross to continue.
Still, Peta have a lot to learn about a nice turkey, not least that it should be hung long enough for the blood to drain out first.
Nice one, El Veg, it's only 10am and I'm already salivating for a nice medium-rare steak...
I fully support this, as I'm all for the ethical treatment of completely imaginary animals. Too long have imaginary slices of fluffy animal been imaginarily mistreated at the hands of imaginary chefs.
Good job, PETA!
The same PETA
that thinks cows shouldnt be milked...
Good stuff - also notable is Peta's recent rebranding of fish as "sea kittens" to improve their public image.
You can even make your own "sea kitten" complete with choices such as Fu Manchu and German Moustaches. Hours of endless fun for children playing with racial stereotypes.
What a waste
OK, anyone who helps support PETA to do things that actually matter should be sad to see their money being used to create a gross, mean, and stupid game. "Shaming" them?? You've got a funny sense of what it is to shame someone, PETA.
I never realised...
...that it was so hard to cut off a turkey's head.
Perhaps a cleaver would be a more appropriate implement?
It's giving me RSI! *grrr*
While I am all for a considerate approach to meat (in fact all foods) consumption, this again shows what whiney little priss bitches are located at PITA. See, instead of boozing in front of the telly or pimping out her daughters for drugs, Mommy is spending all her day doing icky things to the (free-running, organic-feed, humanely killed — she cares) turkey so that by the end of the day her family can enjoy a festive meal.
Do PeTA think...
...we acquired colour binocular vision with a high-definition central focus area and canines for eating leaves?
We're friggin' omnivores and that means we eat some meat (around 20% of our diet).
So long as the beast has been killed humanely by a well trained slaughterer, it's time to chow down.
I suggest that PeTA remonstrate with some lions face-to-face about their habits. Oh wait, they're animals. That's natural. Well here's a clue, humans are animals too! Why should we not also follow what is natural for us?
I think someone needs to teach PETA how to exsanguinate their virtual turkeys...
'People for the Eating of Tasty Animals'?
...Where do I join?
Meat is murder.
Tasty, tasty murder
that is awesome.
If a game is that much fun, killing a real turkey must be even better.
I will be popping off tonight to the local farm to see if I can kill some.
I didn't realise that...
Jeremy Clarkson had several accounts on El Reg these days.
Another soft target
Once again Peta go for another soft target.
They are as gutless as the turkey after I've prepared it!
You will never see peta claiming that halal = terrorism will you?
Go on I dare ya!
Outside the Finsbury Park Mosque
Ben there done that
“prepare a Thanksgiving dinner by going through the motions of plucking a turkey's feathers, pulling out its guts and cutting off the head.”
For others who wish to do so, I recommend cutting off the head first, then plucking the feathers with gloves or a pair of pliers. The feathers are sharp as a knife when you pull agents the grain. The only thing I agree with peta about is that it is good thing for people to prepare their own food; the fact that people don’t have to butcher animals any more has made them weak, fat and unwilling to do unpleasant things no mater how necessary they are.
No it is not that bloody, it sprays just a little when you cut off the head, and just oozes a bit out of the feather holes.
Mine is the one with the pliers in the pocket.
As a lifelong member of PETA I wholeheartedly endorse this new game. It just shows that even you can prepare a delicious turkey for your dinner plate. This has been a PETA production - People Eating Tasty Animals.
One little thing I always like to point out to particularly overzealous veggie types is where their tofu is coming from. Whilst I know where the meat I eat comes from (it is organically produced on a farm in Devon), the soya used to make tofu isn't grown in this country. The breakdown is something like this*:
So you pretty much have a choice there - grown in the US from GM Monsanto beans, or in Brazil or Argentina on ex-rainforest. Add on your transport, processing costs, etc.
and it suddenly doesn't seem so 'ethical' any more. Plus, as previously mentioned, it tastes like shit.
Is it just me...
...or is PETA - supposedly an animal welfare group - now in fact just a coalition of militant vegetarians, vegans, fruitarians and other such?
I'm all for the ethical treatmant of animals in farms, I'm dead against factory farming and think all the creatures destined for our tables (be they four legged, two legged or scaly and swimming) deserve to live before they die for our insatiable apetite for flesh. However, as an avowed omnivore (God, Mother Nature and Father Darwinism made us that way, why resist?) I'm not going to stop eating them. I do, however, intend to stear my consumption away from factory-farmed produce.
However PETA seems to think that this behaviour - the eating of poor defenceless animals - is immoral by definition. I find it insulting to have this bunch of holier-than-thou seed eaters imply that anyone who enjoys cooking meat must automatically glory in the pain of dying creatures, and seek to do them in in the most painful way possible. I'm a fscking pussy when it comes to any kind of suffering - humane killing is always the way forward.
Incidentally, I also wonder what PETA thinks would happen to all the cute little lambikins and calfikins if they ever succeeded in their aim of turning us all veggie. Would farmers keep breeding them out of the goodness of their hearts, keeping them in the peace and harmony of a new ovine/bovine utopia? No. We'd need their fields to grow all the extra fruits and grains which would then be our staple diet - there'd be no room in the great scheme of veggie-farming for baa-baas and moo-moos. Surely it's better for these animals to have a short yet comfortable life (as long as suffering is avoided) than *no life at all*?
I was having great fun with this until the stfu round, then my heart just wasn't in it.
I'll get me coat - it's the bloodstain gory one with entrails hanging out of the pockets.
heh - Meaner than Mama!
Score of 1065...
Gettin! Almost as good as Zombie Flesh Eaters: The Game(TM)!
Flame, because I love roasts!
OK the propaganda machine is in overkill at Peta. I have never cracked open an egg only to have copious amounts of blood and feathers come out.
I know it's only a game but to make us feel guilty about eating an unfertilised egg that was never going to produce a living creature is ridiculous.
Almost as good as...
...Clarkson demonstrating the V8 powered blender and making a blood, beef fillet and brick smoothie with it.
PETA, People who Eat Tasty Animals, will never, ever stop shooting themselves in the foot, will they?
Mines the Penguin, ready to be skinned, cooked and devoured.
words fail me.
So in a world where violent games make kids kill people*, a bunch of animal-loving loonies release a game about killing (but not eating) turkeys...the mind boggles, it really does.
Thanks PETA, but I already know where my meat comes from; a part-time job on a farm took care of that. I'll promise not to make you eat meat if you keep your propaganda to yourselves...
*Does anyone still believe that?
If someone released something like this seriously, considering the people buying games are quite often the same people that went to Ogrish, Spoontard and Rotten.com for the lulz before they were tamed or shut down, the game would sell loads!
/has gutted chicken for a living; mines the one with the steakhouse menu in the pocket.
RE: "Peta. People Eat Tasty Meat".
You were sooo close to nailing that one, I'm sure if you gave it another try you could get it. Clue: The last word must start with an 'A', hmm.......
