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.

and something else...
While I agree that animal suffering should be kept to a minimum/non-existent and that meat production is inefficient, I honestly can't stand eating vegatables (I like fruits, but I still need something with some kick to it). The taste is just gross and I'd eat bugs before I ate brocolli or cauliflower. peta fails to realize that even animals don't like to eat soy product. It has to be mixed with something else. Maybe it's the incredibly bland taste.
Reminds me of college when an ex lived in a vegan house. They had a cookout and someone was trying to convince me that the tofu/sprout burger tasted just like beef. Considering that I like to taste the blood, it amounted to eating tasteless and textureless grass. Lucky for me that one of the girl's father was visiting. He had cooked up some chili (spiced beef, no veggies... and this guy entered competitions) and my ex and I were the only two that would eat it. Worked out pretty well, since there was plenty to gorge myself.
Of course, there was a 'real world' episode where the girl accidently ate some pig meat and forced herself to throw it back up. I'd buy that if it ever came out on disc because it was so funny. She was fine until someone told her.
Thank you PETA!
For making me realise just how easy and rewarding it is to cook your own turkey.
Given that most of the concerns raised in the game about eating turkey relate to the fact that turkeys are farmed in terrible conditions with no quality of life, surely this means that buying a live turkey and raising it in your back garden at home, then killing and preparing it yourself, would be a million times better than buying a pre-plucked bird which is already dead.
Perhaps a more effective campaign would be to encourage people to keep their own bird, giving them a chance to see whether or not it has a personality, in the hope that they then decide, of their own free will, not to kill the bird when the holiday season arrives.
Mind you, would it then be OK to kill the bird if you discovered it was a sociopathic, criminal turkey with no friends?
Oh for crying out loud! PETA shut up!
Sodding PETA, get on my fecking wick! I am a veggie and stick up for animal rights, but organisations like PETA just make the rest of us who have made personal choices, look like complete fecking loonies!
Here's an idea instead of ramming your ideas down everyone's throat trying to grab headlines, how about a programme of educational options in schools and public places, supplying sensible ideas? You don't see IFAW or the Veggie Society running naked up the high street drenched in fake blood to prove their point? Enough to make me go back to meat, just to teach those twats a lesson!
Instructive too. Should save me a packet next christmas 'cause I can kill, pluck and prepare my own turkey now. Thanks PETA.
I didn't realise you could actually eat tofu either, I always thought it was for holding windows in place or something so you learn something new every day....
Paris, she eats meat, I've seen the video
I hope this gets an IP lawsuit. Other than that.. PETA is the reason there are so many accidents involving dear in PA, You can't hunt dear on national lands in the US, because when they schedule a hunt there are PETIDIOTS running around the woods in dear costumes..
What I propose is a national initiative to re-seed the population of Cougar that originally controled the dear population. And then make sure we dress up some of these idiots as dear.
This game dosent show up the (admitidly very bad) practices of the intensive meat industry, but panders to the "ewww. Thats so horible" view of most vegies, who don't seem to hold a moral view point on meat, but a "oh fwuffy animuws" view.
Fun game though.
"PETA is the reason there are so many accidents involving dear in PA." -- Speaks for itself.
I eat meat, but that game convinced me to keep eating meat.
never Done turkey but have did a chicken in scouts
PETA realism is every thing you should of got a consaltant cook in there would have told you
a. blood on your cooking implements after not before as they harbour germs. eveything would have been spot lessly clean before starting.
b. personally i'm have prepared the stuffing first before the chicken just personal choice gives less time for draining as the "juices" in the chicken improves the taste of the stuffing.
c. you don't dump the egg shells in the bowl too. just the yolk and white
d. these not much blood when i plucked the chicken i went with the grain and there was little to no blood.
e. you remove all the organs in one go (well i did anyway.) and you keep them to make soup or stock or something. ( afriend puts it in her compost heap which she then spreads in her veggie patch )
f. head removal one word clever takes one blow. (and you forgot removing the legs)
when i was younger i didn't know whether to work in IT or to be a chef decided i didn't wanna work christmas so went into IT. if really was last minute decision on college enrollment day. and hate seeing stuff done wrong especially with food (i mean food poisoning is not good) the reason i've plucked a chicken is when i was a scout we did a suvival day on a camp they split us into groups and gave you a chicken and said that's your groups dinner prepare, cook and eat that i ended up in the group of (newly found ) veggies so i did it all myself. it's amasing how quickly they recovered when it was cooked and they were hungry.
unforunately i was ill during the sarvival weekend a few months later so missed me chance to prepare rabbit. :-(
fire to cook my rabbit cause rabbits tasty (yes i know they are cute and fluffy too!)
PETA = People Eat Tasty Animals :-)
Interesting way to kill 10-15 minutes - ended up scoring just over 1000 which probably goes to show that I am an evil, heartless bastard after all. The 'tofu' endgame was hilarious for all the wrong reasons - I wonder if any of the PETArds have actually eaten the bloody stuff, much less made faux-turkey out of it.
The might even net some sales for Nintendo too - I'm currently debating whether or not to buy a DS and play Cookin' Mama for real.
There's a place for all of God's creatures, and it's right next to the mashed potatoes.
Flames, 'cos I like my meat well done.
Gross, tofu turkey
Title says it. Gross, tofu turkey. Or as "they" call it "tofurkey". I've had a nice fried tofu a few times (Kung Pao for instance), it's good, but the tofu stuff that pretends it's meat? Barf. The "hamburger" is all spongey, and the rest are even worse.
I hereby coin a new term...
PETArds! Thank you.
Well if you do go round shooting "dear", especially "old dears", then you should manage a jolly good bag. It's easy, but not very good sport as they can't move that fast - those old ladies aren't that sprightly.
I think that Tom Lehrer summed it up well in the "Hunting Song" - something that could almost have been written for Dick Cheney. However, I'm not sure we can blame PETA for the fate of his victim as, as I rather suspect he wasn't a member of the organisation.
Tofu looking like meat?
"But in the end, Mama has a change of heart and replaces her bloodlust with a craving for tofu-formed mock-turkey"
Why do vegetarians feel the need to make non-meat based foodstuffs look like they came from an animal.
Suggestions in less than 10 words please.
People Eating Tasty Animals
All their campaigns ever do is make me hungry. I saw an anti-chicken nugget ad. It made me want chicken nuggets.
Guess what this made me do? I want turkey dinner now. Thanks PETA, now I'm hungry.
Everyone has a right to their views, just don't shove it on me.
And from a religious standpoint...
If God hadn't wanted us to eat animals, (s)he wouldn't have made them out of meat.
No wonder they don't eat meat if that's what their food looks like after preparing it. Dumbasses. I wonder how they would have survived 200 years ago..
If God didn't want us to eat animals...
He wouldn't have made them out of MEAT!!!
Ooo, ooo, me, me
Can I pretend to be really hard just cos I eat meat?
"That's just nature. I don't see them petitioning lions to stop eating zebras."
So you didn't watch any of the inter-level movies then? Try this http://www.peta.org/cooking-mama/bonus-video2.asp and then tell me just how that had any relevance to a pride of lions catching and eating a zebra?
"So long as the beast has been killed humanely by a well trained slaughterer, it's time to chow down."
Again, maybe you should have watched them movies before talking out your arse. Turkeys are not required to be 'killed humanely' (that phrase puts me in mind of 'collateral damage') and just how many people working in slaughter houses go through slaughterer's university?
Factory farming is designed to provide cheap meat. Cheap meat means little, if any, humanity cos that would cost money.
Oh yeah, and tofu mostly tastes like shit.
I don't like veggie propaganda, but I am a veggie. It's great.
One day, not in our lifetime, the civilised world will be meat free and religion free.
I hold no hope for those backward cavemen in the middle east though...
What if there was a PETPV?
As in People for the Ethical Treatment of Plants and Vegetation. As humans must consume food for sustenance (sorry, we are not flora--the best we can do with sunlight is to produce Vitamin D). And some critical substances such as Vitamin B12 *only* occur in animals (either that or eat up lots of bacteria out of the ground). So suppose some people come to a realization that plants are alive as well and therefore should deserve the same protections and care as animals. Suddenly, you have a group of people who would be shouting at us to start caring for plants and eat animals (who also eat plants) instead. Put them together with PETA, who wants us to do the exact reverse, and you're up the proverbial creek. We can't eat plants, we can't eat animals, and we can't photosynthesize--IOW, we starve.

After nailing a score of 1152 i must be more evil than a room full of Hitlers! But that aside i must wonder what monstrosity i wrought when apparently "thanks to me" Cooking mama now loves animals and instead makes a turkey out of TOFU after butchering an 'innocent, defenseless animal'. Oh yes PETA, this is the 21st century and its called -survival-
Also if PETA had their way then the whole world would likely be at the very least be forced into becoming veggie. Then you'd have the problem of growing enough plants for more than a few billion hungry people, plus pests, drought, thieves trying to feed their malnourished family and although there are vegetables that provide iron, i'm to understand that you'd need to eat way more in order to match the protein levels offered by a Tender steak. Unless vitamin supplements are added but thats similar to a draw full of pr0n.

re: What if there was a PETPV?
Plants don't have a central nervous system and therefore don't feel pain.
I'm sure you knew that, or maybe you really are stupid.
re:Re: What if there was a PETPV
No but they do have feelings and go into shock when someone abuses them. Plus there was something else but i can't quite put my finger on it but its based on PETA going from Animal rights that you can get behind to a brainless propaganda machine.
