Here’s the problem I have with PETA.  By now I’m sure most of you have heard about the horse that died on the track at the Kentucky Derby.  My problem with PETA is how they act.  Let me first say that I know hardly anything about horse racing.  I’ve never watched a full race ever.  PETA is outraged about this incident.  Let me pick a part their argument.

They say that whipping the horse is inhumane.  You know what?  I agree.  Take it out.  But I heard on ESPN today that the only reason it’s still even done is that it’s tradition.  Everyone agreed it should go.  My problem with PETA is not that they pointed this out, it’s that they used this event to point this out, when this has been going on for a long time.  It was called a tradition.  Why wait till now to really jump into the fray?  I’ll tell you why.  Publicity. 

PETA went right after the jockey who was riding the horse.  It’s always the humans fault.  These are the same people who if a human being and a dog were both dying, they would push the human off to the side and give the dog CPR.   These are the people that if I were to hit a dog in my car because i couldn’t get over to the other side of the road due to cars, they would sue me for not hitting the car instead of the dog.  This jockey did nothing wrong.  Everyone interviewed has said this. 

On ESPN this morning, they played a piece of an interview with a spokeswoman from PETA, and she wouldn’t ever actually answer a question asked.  Instead she would take the question and answer it by saying how cruel and terrible the treatment of the horses was.  Listen, these are some lucky horses.  I guarantee that some of them live a much fuller and better life then i do.  I know a bunch of them are richer.  Also, the boy horses aren’t just turned to glue (and if they are it is probably the best glue, a thoroughbred glue), they live out their retirement making it with some hot lady horses.  

 PETA’s problem is that it just seems that they are using this situation as publicity.  Jumping on a sad situation to further their cause.  PETA is just one of many groups who come out and have aided this country into becoming one that is so overly politically correct. 

 

Switching gears, I have watched American Idol tonight.  Here are my thoughts…

DAVID COOK:  probably not his best work (tho i thought the Who song was good), but he is hands down the best one overall.  if you don’t think so then guess what?  You’re a nazi.  You jew killer.

DAVID ARCHIE SOMETHING:  annoying.  I think it’s due to how young he is and how he tries to come off as this person who is all about important things.  get over yourself man.  will he make it to the finals?  yes.  why?  because grandmas and 12 year olds have figured out how to text. 

THE GIRL:  am i the only one who thinks she just shrieks and screams everything?  the most annoying thing tonight?  the crying.  i have never seen someone use crying to their advantage.  she will go on because she cried.  i will be really surprised if she doesn’t.  bravo lady, bravo.  SIDE NOTE:  crying is the woman’s main weapon against tyranny.  It is how they get out of speeding tickets, how they get votes, and how they can end the war in Iraq.  Just send some crying women over there.

 
HIPPIE DUDE:  man, i want to like this guy.  I really liked his somewhere over the rainbow a few weeks back.  but wow, he dropped the ball tonight.  ive never seen someone who has these huge eyes that are fully open at all times still seem stoned.  impressive. 

 

finally, i will announce the results to the poll question.  Do you think I should try out for american idol?  Here are the results……

85 percent – no

10 percent – sure why not

15 percent – you are a terrible human being

 

there you have it.  before i leave, ill leave you with this email i got from a fan.  Sherlie James from Orlando, Florida writes..

Dear johnny,

I really enjoy your blogs.  The way you rant really gets my juices flowing.  You are so hilarious.  You deserve your own show or something.  You are so sweet and daring.  I love the way your words just flow from your fingers.  I bet you sound hot when you talk.  I have included a picture of me in a bikini for your own eyes.  i really enjoy looking at those pictures of yourself that you have put in a few blog posts.  I love you and wish to stalk you.  I have to go now, Roger Clemmons is calling me.

you’re biggest fan,

Sherlie James.

 

Keep the fan mail coming!  I enjoy reading how i have changed your lives for the better.  it would also be great if i didn’t have to make these letters up. 

 

P.S:  let me point this out before i end this.  I like animals.  I have two dogs.  One dog i like and one dog that i wish terrible things upon.  So i do like some animals.  some.  i really enjoy penguins.  there’s something about an animal that always looks like it’s wearing a tux….

P.P.S i saw the new brand new trailer for the next Batman movie…..i’m slobbering over this one.  Looks like how Joker should have been done.  RIP Heath.
