What's In A Name?????????????
The 19-year-old PETA Youth Outreach Coordinator says he changed his name from Chris Garnett to support the group's anti-K-F-C campaign.
NORFOLK, Va. (Dec. 30) -- A Virginia animal rights activist has legally changed his name to Kentucky-Fried-Cruelty-dot-com
The youth outreach coordinator for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says he changed his name from Chris Garnett to support the group's anti-K-F-C campaign.
The 19-year-old says his new name "never fails to spark a discussion."
PETA's complaints against K-F-C stem from video footage shot last year recording alleged mistreatment of birds at a Pilgrim's Pride plant in Moorefield, West Virginia. The plant is a K-F-C supplier.
Yum! Brands, the parent company of K-F-C, has disputed the claims of mistreatment. In June, a grand jury refused to indict former workers at the West Virginia chicken plant.

I hope the juvenile do-gooder PETA puke eventually finds something meaningful to do with his life. <sigh> Wonder if he's practiced hugging trees yet.
Maybe he has done us a favor tho - I mean - unlikely any woman in her right mind will want to wed such a dork and finish up with that name - thus meaning (with luck) there will not be any progeny. Keep the pool clean (er!).

Just think! Now he will be stuck with his new name when (if?) he comes to his senses in 10 or so years.

PETA used to have some billboards here in Nashville, advertising the cruelty of KFC. One had Pam Anderson on it.
One day we drove by a KFC and saw a small group of activists picketing outside it. It made me hungry. We dropped by KFC later so I could get some crispy chicken strips.
Too bad the picketers were gone by then.

I love the way you think, Betty!
I'm afraid that's a little too optimistic, Chris. There are PETA women out there that are no less crazy, and I assume they find his devotion to those poor mistreated animals sooo attractive. And concerning the progeny... marriage is not a requirement, especially not for liberals.
