Addressing the elephant in the room

 

 

 

The animal rights group People for the ethical treatment of animals or PETA epitomizes the phrase liberalism is a mental disorder. They do it pretty much on a daily basis. But their tweet yesterday proved their insanity.

The group expressed their disdain for common phrases with meat references with a politically correct alternative.

“Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic, or ableist language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start ‘bringing home the bagels’ instead of the bacon,” PETA said on Twitter.

The group took to Twitter Tuesday, offering a graphic showing some possible alternatives to meat-related expressions.

Instead of “kill two birds with one stone” say “feed two birds with one scone,” and instead of “being the guinea pig,” say “be the test tube,” PETA said.

The meaning of the phrase “bringing home the bacon” is as follows.  

To earn money, particularly for one’s family; to be successful, especially financially successful.

The origin of the phrase ‘bring home the bacon’ is sometimes suggested to be the story of the Dunmow Flitch. This tradition, which still continues every four years in Great Dunmow, Essex, is based on the story of a local couple who, in 1104, impressed the Prior of Little Dunmow with their marital devotion to the point that he awarded them a flitch [a side] of bacon. The continuing ritual of couples showing their devotion and winning the prize, to considerable acclamation by the local populace, is certainly old and well authenticated. Geoffrey Chaucer mentions it in The Wife of Bath’s Tale and Prologue, circa 1395:

But never for us the flitch of bacon though,

That some may win in Essex at Dunmow.

It is understandable how a group of Socialist such as PETA would be offended by working and bringing home the bacon. Political correctness should have been stopped 25 years ago but it wasn’t so this kind of nonsense is what we live with.
