Man was that a good lay…
PETA, a solid organization most of the time, is putting poor Sesame Street under fire for promoting eggs as a wholesome food. Unbelievable. PETA wrote to Sesame Street: “promoting the egg industry’s deceptive ‘Good Egg Project,’ Sesame Street is misleading children and parents into believing that eggs are a wholesome food, when the truth is that eggs are linked to multiple serious health problems and that the egg industry horribly abuses animals.”
I get that the a lot of the Egg industry abuses animals, but when Sesame Street‘s major sponsor is the American Egg Board, what are they supposed to do? PETA should focus on shutting down farms that abuse animals, not a poor children’s show.
I was always taught that Eggs were good for me–by my trainer, at school, my grandma, my mom, etc. I know that studies are linking that they’re not the BEST thing for you, but it’s all subjective. It’s not like the nicotine industry is sponsoring the show, and Oscar is coming out of his trash can smoking a Virgina Slim.
Ease up PETA. What’s next? Telling Sesame Street they shouldn’t promote vegetables because farmers are overworked???
